Electric Quilt doodles

So here we are at December with fresh Doodles – we’ve chosen the Forget Me Not Ring applique block from the EQ Library for this month. The default colouring is probably more autumnal than the traditional festive colours –

Staying with the default colouring but making an easy change adds focus to the centre of the block, perfect for showcasing some quilted texture perhaps?

Increasing the contrast between the centre and outside the wreath changes the “weight” of the block.

Reversing the values is an option and emphasises the circular wreath shape.

Changing the colours to almost-traditional and choosing a sombre black background makes the colours really “pop”.

Just one Doodles quilt this time – combining 4 simple blocks with 5 Forget Me Not Ring blocks.

Happy festive Doodling!

  1. I love your EQ doodles! I am only just starting on EQ and working through the instructions so am amazed at what can be produced – are you thinking of doing any on-line classes? PLEASE!!!!!!!!

  2. I love the doodles.
    Have a quilt wizard …lesser version of EQ but still fun to use. Good to see different colour effects. Keep doodling

    1. sorry Lynda, no assembly instructions, just the templates and rotary cutting measurements. For the Rolling Star I would join the diamonds first into pairs, then into 4s and then join the 2 sets of 4 together. The diamonds and squares then go into place using Yseam technique or stitch and pivot. Will have discussions with the Technical Department about expanding into instructions for future Doodle selections. Barbar
