This week’s quilt I named “Mossy”. The layout below would be small throw size, or toddler sized—50 inches square. If you decide to make it bigger, it would probably look best with an odd number of blocks for rows and columns.

This is a very simple quilt, with only two blocks, but there are about ten billion different ways to color them! I was playing for hours. I couldn’t pick just one favorite, so here are two:

Daisy spools. See the hidden spools?

I again used a Design Seeds palette by importing the colors directly into EQ as fabrics. I picked this one below. After I imported the colors and colored the quilt, though, it was a little flat, so I added a bit of a zinger green, vaguely similar to the one that is in the foreground. A little lighter in the first one. That seems to have done it!

This would be perfect for a leader/ender project. The whole quilt is just 2.5″ unfinished squares and half-square triangles (HSTs). Anyway, this is a very simple quilt with just two 10″ blocks:

About Free Pattern Friday:

I am learning how to use EQ7 and trying to stretch my designing and coloring muscles. I wanted to be able to share what I came up with, hence this series. I will list cutting sizes, and anything else that would be critical to figuring it out, but to be able to make this free I am not going to post instructions—you will need to work out the details, like fabric requirements and piecing instructions, on your own.

You can use the free patterns in this series however you want except for to sell the pattern, copy the images, or mass-produce these quilts. All of the blocks I use are either included with EQ (which means they are in the public domain) or they are my own that I am giving permission to use. I would love to hear back if you make anything from these patterns!
