If you missed the EQ7 designs of Block of the Month for 2015 and 2016, I am planning to make each year available, as well as past appliqué blocks of the month. These would be downloads for a very low cost. If you are interested please comment below. If there is enough interest I will go ahead with my plans.
At first, I thought I would put the designs on a CD but then realized since I am a MAC user and many of you are PC users, so there might be compatibility issues. Then there is postage and sending to those overseas. I just have to figure out how to do paid downloads, since I have never had those kinds of downloads from my website before.
These files will work ONLY if you have EQ7 or a related EQ program installed on your computer, but may not work with earlier versions. These files are inaccessible without EQ! Click on the .pj7 file to transfer it to your computer and place it in your Electric Quilt folder. That should do it.
If you have EQ7, download the files as they appear. I will do my best to load the EQ designs with the blocks each month, although I won’t guarantee to get them out at the same time as the PDF. Just so many hours in the day. Check back often!
IF you have problems downloading, try a different browser!
Have fun using them in your EQ quilts. If you design a quilt with these blocks, I would love to see it and will share it in my BOM Gallery! That actually applies to any quilt made from my patterns, whether or not it is in EQ. Always love to see your work!
ATTENTION EQer’s! Please read the note cards. Since the program generates the templates, it isn’t possible to have parts in front and behind a motif at the same time. The note card has instructions on how the part is to be placed. I foresee that each appliquéd letter will have stems or leaves behind the actual letter or pass through the openings. You can also decide for yourself how you want the stems and leaves placed.
When a letter has closed areas, as O, P, Q and R have, those areas are cut out of the letter fabric, exposing the background. A little reverse appliqué for you! Those templates are “broken” to allow for the background to show.
