EQ Doodles

In November’s doodles Barbara has used some frame blocks and looks at how effective they are for showing off those prints that you can’t bear to cut up into small pieces.

I have drawn them out in Electric Quilt (EQ8) and recoloured them so they look very different from Barbara’s colourings. Over on the EQ Doodles page you can download a colouring sheet to design your own colourways. However you may fancy actually making quilts with these blocks having seen some of the ones Barbara has designed.
