Electric Quilt doodles – April


Simple changes in quilt settings this month – and a simple spring green colourway.  Here’s our starting point – a straight, edge to edge setting of 16 identical blocks –

Plain sashing with cornerstones has something to add? –

  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
