Electric Quilt doodles

January Doodles

Its 2020. We can’t quite believe it! So we’re kicking off this new year with an old favourite – the eight-pointed star. Two blocks – Lemoyne Star – and four of them together which is imaginatively known as Four Stars block.

So the black and white versions first

and then using them in a quilt or two – first is a simple straight-set, alternating blocks

or put four in the centre and corners –

We can turn them on point too

or

Jan quilt 5

or even

Jan quilt 4

Now lets add some colour – blue and white, perhaps

and the quilts? Here’s the alternate-block version –

You can download the colouring-in doodle here and there are two versions this month as a Happy New Year present.

Best of 2019

We wanted to add in a quick selection of doodles from 2019 before we get around to posting the first doodles of 2020.  Next year we will be making some changes and additions to our monthly doodle postings so be sure to check in and see what we’re up to.  Here’s our pick of 2019 – with a link here to a little download entertainment  – which gives you an added opportunity for a creating your designs too.

  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

    • 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
