Have you taken the time to play around in EQ6 with the different grid options under the PatchDraw Pieced layer? If not, you won't want to miss out on the fun... start a new project and start playing around with those options.
Choose from 6 different grid options (rectangle, circle, arc, eight-point star, kaleidoscope, and octagon) to quickly draw traditional square blocks. But even better, use this option to its fullest advantage to draw non-square blocks, as in the case of this sunflower octagon block (drawn actually using the eight-point star grid). Use the custom quilt layout to plan a non-traditional, non-square quilt. If you are looking for an unusual way to draw and layout your blocks, you're sure to have some fun with this wonderful option!
