EQ Files: Delectable Mountains

The next EQ Project File I’m sharing is a very simple quilt I drew up for my mom. She had just finished Mickey’s quilt and was looking for something to work on, something quick and NOT BLACK. Sewing on black fabric makes it very difficult for her to see. I showed her a picture of this design and explained how easy it was to sew, and she decided this would be a good palate cleansing project.

Here’s the finished quilt top – she’s setting it aside for now, so I don’t have a picture of it quilted:

Here’s the EQ illustration:

Here’s an alternate colorway that completely changes the look of the quilt.

If this pattern interests you, it’s a very simple project. You sew half square triangles out of 9″ – 10″ squares (9″ doesn’t give you much room for error, 10″ works if you have a layer cake, or cut any size in between), trim to 8″, cut the HST into four 2″ strips, then reverse the order of the strips and sew back together.  Easy as that!

More about the EQ Files project: I’m a huge fan of Electric Quilt. I’ve made exponentially more virtual quilts than real quilts, and I thought it might be nice to share some of those virtual quilts here.  I’ll also share an EQ project file that you can download. Fair warning – if you don’t have EQ you won’t be able to use these files. I’ll be sharing mostly EQ8 files, so if you have an older version you may want to upgrade. It’s worth it, I promise!

Once in a great while, I might write up instructions for a quilt. If I do that, I may share the instructions here for free. If it’s a particularly complex pattern, I might spend more time writing it up and turn it into a pattern for sale. Don’t hold your breath, though.

As stated many times before, I receive no compensation from Electric Quilt for any of this – I just really love the product. I am (at least I think I still am) an EQ Artist on their Do You EQ website.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I try to reply to every comment, but sometimes it takes a few days. And sometimes, well... it has been known to drop off the radar. I'm easily distracted by shiny things.
