Electric Quilt doodles

This month’s doodles began with making changes to a single block.  Here’s the starting point –

lighten the value at the centre –

mix up the values a little more –

keep moving things around –

and a little more –

And it’s always fun to play around with quilt options – here the starter block is teamed with a graphic X block –

A darker border makes a considerable difference –

Extend the darkest value into the blocks and sashing cornerstones –


Take the dark value right into the background too –

Add in lighter cornerstones –

Lighten sashings instead, back to dark cornerstones –

and finally, take background and sashings back to light and ditch the X block for variations of the original block.

  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
