Do you EQ? I do and I love it. Gone are the days of drawing out all my applique patterns full size by hand. From time to time I will be adding EQ files, for quilts or just blocks, here for you to download. Not all designs will be applique, but it is one of my favorite things to do so bits of applique sneak in to even my pieced projects regularly.
You MUST have EQ in order to download the designs. The designs on the EQ pages are not available as pdf files. They are in various versions of EQ since I have used EQ5, EQ6 and EQ7 over the years. There are no instructions included, only the EQ files. If you don’t have EQ I’m sorry, but writing instructions takes a LONG time and cuts into time that I could and would rather be quilting (or playing in EQ). The verison of EQ that the design was done in is noted by each design.
Please respect copyright; just because these designs are offered free doesn’t mean they aren’t governed by copyright laws. These patterns are for your personal use, to make as a gift for someone or they may be made for charitable purposes or you may sell a quilt made from them but not mass produce. The files or printed patterns from these files are not to be used or distributed in any fashion and should not be shared via email – they are for the downloader’s personal use only and anyone else wanting a copy should be directed here to download their own file.
Be sure to save the file to your computer. The patterns are here today but may be removed at any time. I will not individually email files to anyone. Just click on the name of the quilt name or block name to open the link. If you find a link that is not working properly, please let me know and I will investigate.
If you make a quilt from one of these designs or use the blocks, I hope you’ll share a photo of it with me so I can post it on my blog.
DeniseA note about the final skinny border added to the designs – this is just the binding area. I like to see what the quilt will look like totally finished so usually add that skinny border to represent the binding.
