Favorite Finish Monthly Linkup - March 2020

Welcome to March's Favorite Finish Monthly Linkup!


March has been crazy and I am not sad to see it go.  I am now working from home and my two kids are e-learning.  We are all settling into our new routines and trying to stay safe and healthy.

I think that we could all use some cheer so please link up your favorite finish from March and take a few minutes to see everyone else's finishes.  Remember, you can link a picture right from your computer, you do not need a Instagram or blog post.

My favorite finish for this month was a Wide Open Pouch by Noodlehead for my mother.  March's challenge for Aurifil Artisans was to use Kaffe fabric and Kantha stitching (big stitch hand quilting without marking lines).


I used my only piece of Kaffe I own along with a bunch of different colored 12 wt Aurifil threads and stitched away.  Once I finished the hand quilting, I cut up the fabric and had the pouch made pretty quickly (Noodlehead's patterns are always wonderful).  Now to get the pouch in the mail :)





Ready for the party?  

Here is a reminder of the party details:
  • The linky party will open at 12:01am EST on the last day of the month and will be open for 5 days, through the 4th at 11:59 pm EST.
  • For instructions on how to link up blog, Instagram, or pictures from your computer (new - there is now a way to just upload a picture without a web link) to the party, click here.  
  • If linking a blog post, I ask that you please add a link back to the party (and the button graphic if you would like).
  • Please visit at least 3 other links (and preferably leave comments) to share the love and celebration :)
I hope you join in by checking out the posts or linking your favorite finish of the month!

EQ8 ++ Tips & Tricks ++ Moving the Fabric Preview


I have a quick EQ8 tip for you today on how to move the fabric preview window out of the sketchbook area.

Especially when you are on a smaller screen such as lap top screen, the sketchbook area on the left hand side of the screen is limited.  The fabric preview window takes up a good portion of this valuable real estate.

Simply click the button that looks like an arrow pointing to a bracket (in the bottom right hand corner of the preview fabric).


This detaches the fabric preview window and allows it to be placed anywhere on the screen giving more area for the other elements in the sketchbook.


If you ever want to return the fabric preview window to the sketchbook, simply click the X in the upper right hand corner of the fabric preview window.

I hope this quick tip helps!!

March EQ8 Block Spotlight

Did you know that each month Electric Quilt highlights a block from the EQ8 Block Library? They share a few ideas on how you could use the block in a unique way in a quilt top then asks EQ users to play and show what they can do with the block.



This month's block is 2 Little Flowers 2 in the Contemporary Applique, Flowers category and you can find it on EQ's blog here.

This block was a challenge for me as I do not tend to design applique much and the cute flowers were not really my style.

I transformed the block using the Serendipity Kaleidoscope function to make the one block into 4 new blocks.  Here is my new quilt top...



Have you ever played with and submitted a design in the EQ8 Block Spotlight?
