This week’s quilt I called Stargazer, after the flower in the palette I chose. It works up to 45″ x 54″ as illustrated.

I am back to a Design Seeds palette this week.

So, just two simple blocks, yet again, this week. Both 9″ square, finished. This week I am adding a new type of component–the hourglass block, which I abbreviated QST. You can find a tutorials on how to make these here or in many other places on the web.

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!
