For this week's blog, I decided to play with EQ8 to design my own block. It's easy to start with a block and move some lines around however it is always best to start with the size you intend using so you don't get funky cutting instructions. For example, if you want a 12" finished block, don't play with a 5-patch block. On the other hand, a 6" block would be fine because you can double it to make 12".

I know it is a bit late for thinking about making a Christmas quilt, but I figured if I started now, then I might have it done by 2020. You see, I just love Anita's Christmas quilt and the great thing about it is you can make blocks as you like then later put it all together. That's what I am planning on doing.
