Only virtual quilting going on today

I'm sure you've all seen a quilt and had it trigger an idea. I was reading a post on Stashbuster and came across this link to Quiltmaker and for some reason - those center blocks seemed to be creating a boxy type frame. So since I already had EQ6 open I had to play some.

I didn't like my first few attempts but came across this version when I started randomly trying different colors in the blocks. It's doubtful whether I'll ever make this quilt but it was fun playing. Just in case you can't *see* the block in the quilt - here it is.

I really should make myself use my EQ more. this is cool.

Pretty cool--almost a southwest feel to it. Would you piece it the same way as shown? I think I would turn the two squares of the same color in the 1st and 2nd rows into a rectangle strip piecing where you could---but then it wouldn't be a split nine patch. Looks like you invented your own block or coloration, Mary.

I had my own "play" session in EQ6 today and learned a new trick from Judy L!

Ooooh I wish I had EQ6 to play with. Still, I love seeing what everyone else discovers with using it.

That's a great quilt, Mary! I'd make those rectangles, too, but probably because I'm a lazy piecer! Hope you make this one up. It's lovely!
