new eq7 block challenge

Have you heard the news? There is a new EQ7 Block Challenge that is going on right now over at DO YOU EQ? It will be going on for another week as well so you still have time! Brush up your designing skills and design a block using Timeless Treasures Charleston Fabric with the free Download Fabric File in EQ7. Don't have EQ7? Don't worry! You can also design with a paper and pencil and WIN $75 and buy the software! All of the instructions on listed on the page! Good luck!

The Charleston fabric is growing on me too. Although it looks pretty traditional, it is not! There are a lot of geometrical shapes going on there mixed in with some florals and some mini prints. I'm digging it! ;-)

Here is my 12" block I am calling "Seagulls in the Sand." It is adapted from the Ribbons Block found in EQ.

Seagulls in the Sand - 12" Block

Good luck to everyone who participates in the challenge!

Oh...sorry about that. I updated the post so you can actually see an entire quilt design used with these luscious fabrics!

Seagulls in the Sand - in Rotation ~ 63 x 63 inches

Seagulls in the Sand - in Formation ~ 69 x 93 inches

If you are intersted in this block, drop me a note and I will send you the cutting instructions for it.

And thanks for dropping by! Knuddels!
