EQ 7 Summer Draw Along

Well today is the day for the posts and link up for the Summer Draw along.EQ 7 Summer Draw Along
I  have the first block done and made up.

I have worked on the 3 variations and will work them up soon. I missed the post at mid month that had the variations .... something to note for next month. It has been great practice in using EQ7.
I do have a tip for piecing the little outside half square units.
I cut mine at 2 1/2" instead of 2 3/8" and then trimmed them down to 2"units. There was not much trimmed off , and they were nice and square.

Having fun making the button for the side bar...... not. I'll keep working on it and maybe I will remember what I did the last time.

Bags are packed and still on the fence about the stitches conference this year...... just waiting for a phone call to see what I am to do.
Pop over to the EQ7 blog to see the other blocks created this month.

  1. Love your block! Your fabrics look so great together. I did the exact same thing with the half square triangles. They come out so much better if you can cut them down to size. So much easier for sure!

  2. I love how you have done your block as well - I didn't cut down my squares but I usually do this as well as I like the accuracy it gives.
