Class Overview

Having basic knowledge of how to draw pieced and applique blocks in EQ8 will take your designs further than ever! Having the tools to take those designs to the next level will make your quilt designs extraordinary!

This half-day class will teach how to create blocks without drawing at all. Take blocks from the EQ Block Library and use the Create Serendipity feature to turn library blocks into show stoppers with just a click of the mouse.

You’ll leave this class with blocks perfect for your next sampler quilt.
