Round Robin from German Yahoo Group “EQ7-Club”
Christiane Wipplinger shows the results of a Border Round Robin in this self-running demo. The challenge? The last border had to be a “virtual border.” To see the quilts, click here, then wait for it to load. (No need to download anything).
Lesson: Foundation Fundamentals
LOTS of questions lately about drawing foundations. We think this lesson is replay-worthy. Subject: What makes a block foundation pieceable. Try it.
Written for Kaleidoscope Collection blocks, it identifies things to watch for when drawing foundations.
NOTE: Don’t own Kaleidoscope Collection? (You’re missing GREAT blocks!) We provide the 5 lesson blocks in the EQ7 project below. Download the project > open it > start the lesson from Step 14. All steps for EQ6 work for EQ7.
