A Little EQ6 Morning Fun

Sometimes I just have to.  So, while I love to use the Serendipity Merge feature to make new blocks, there’s also simple cut and paste.  So when I take this block:

economy patch

And do a Copy and Paste so I can superimpose it over this block:

four blades block

I wind up with this block:

Pinwheel Spin block

Now.  How fun is that?

And then I can put it in a quilt.  Like this:

2 block pinwheel spin with sashing

Or this:

2 block with pinwheel spin 2

It occurs to me I’d like to see the block without that center circle.  So here it is without:

  pinwheel spin without inner circle

Yes, I like that.  Cleaner.  So, like this in a quilt:

2 block pin wheel spin without inner circle orange 

Fun way to start the day.  Now I’m off to do real work (bummer).


  1. You are just so good at designing and using EQ. You make it look so easy.

  2. I have EQ6 and love it too.
    Excellent job!

  3. I'm a newbie to EQ6, so I appreciate knowing what this program is capable of. Will you actually sew this? Perhaps as a miniature?

  4. Real work is over rated, right? I love your quilt "doodles"!
