Class Overview

Learn how to use the Custom Set feature of EQ8 to create quilt top designs with different sized blocks, sashing, and/or negative space to yield alternate grid designs. EQ8’s Custom Set layout is like starting with a large design wall and placing blocks of different sizes next to one another to create beautiful quilts. Using a combination of the Set Block tool and the Adjust tool is where the magic happens.

A more in-depth Custom Quilt class is also being offered by a different teacher on a different day. It is not recommended that you enroll in both classes as there will be repeated content.
