New Product! Add-on EQ8 Block Library for AccuQuilt Qube: Nine Patch Party

Let’s have a party!  A Nine Patch Party!  I am pleased to introduce the next set of  Add-on EQ8 Block Library files designed to work with your AccuQuilt Mix & Match Qubes.  Included are 60 gorgeous Nine Patch variation block designs that you can load into EQ8 Quilt design software.

EQ8 is Quilt Design Software by The Electric Quilt Company.  I design my quilts in EQ8, I teach EQ8 and I use EQ8 in my original patterns.

These convenient block designs work with the Accuquilt GO! Qube Mix and Match Die sets.  You can use the Die Shapes in the GO! Qubes to cut out these blocks with speed and accuracy.

These EQ8 Block Library files are downloadable digital files that are designed to work with your EQ8 Quilt Design Software.  They are only compatible with EQ8.  Once you place the block file in your library, you will be able to use it immediately to draw and design beautiful quilts.

Required: A running copy of EQ8 Quilt Design Software.

60 Gorgeous Nine Patch Blocks!

I have included 60 Nine Patch Party Block designs from beginner to challenging, from traditional to creative.  You are sure to find some great options to design and color your own quilts in EQ8.

These blocks are Nine Patch Blocks that can be cut out with your Go! Qube Mix & Match Set, no companion dies are needed.

Since the Nine Patch design is based upon a 3 x 3 grid, your finished block sizes will finish larger as indicated in the chart below.

block sizes

Nine Patch Party is available in all of the GO! Qube sizes.  They are color coordinated by size in the shop so you can find the size you need.

Complete Instructions including Die Cutting Guide!

Each set of library blocks comes with a complete set of Instructions, a Block Reference Guide and a Die Cutting Guide.

The Die Cutting Guide provides pictures of the Nine Patch Party blocks and which shapes are needed from the Qube to cut out that block similar to the picture above.

Please note:  If you have more than one size of Qube, you only need one size of the block library.  Once you have the EQ8 Library for AccuQuilt installed into EQ8, you can easily resize to your other size Qubes as it will scale properly.  You can certainly purchase other sizes for convenience, but it is not necessary.

Thank You!  And Happy Quilting!

New Product! EQ8 Block Library: AccuQuilt BOB Set 1


It’s Here!!! Ever since I published my EQ8 block library files for the AccuQuilt GO! Qube Mix & Match sets, you have been requesting more.  You tell me how convenient they are to use with EQ8 and then cut out with your AccuQuilt GO! cutters.  They make your design process speedier and that it is so nice to have the block to match your BOB die.  So I decided to create block files for the AccuQuilt Block on Board (BOB) dies. 

BOB die blocks enable you to create an entire block with one die board.  Every piece needed for the block is on the design board.

This file contains SET 1 of the BOB block designs which includes 20 blocks.  The blocks vary in size as indicated to match the BOB die. I have included the size of the block by the name reference.

The ONLY designs included in this set are:

  • Bear’s Paw 14”
  • Chimney Sweep 10”
  • Churn Dash 9”
  • BIG Churn Dash 12”
  • Crossed Canoes 9″
  • Glorified Nine Patch 9”
  • Hattie’s Choice 8”
  • Hunter’s Star 6”
  • LeMoyne Star 9”
  • Log Cabin 12”
  • Maple leaf 8″
  • Morning Star 12”
  • Ohio Star 12”
  • Pineapple 10”
  • Snail’s Trail 12”
  • Snail’s Trail 8″
  • Snowball 6”
  • Spool 6”
  • Starry Path 9″
  • Storm at Sea 9”

Required: A running copy of EQ8 Quilt Design Software from The Electric Quilt Company.

Required: You will need the AccuQuilt BOB die set in the size that matches the EQ8 library file in order to cut out these block designs with the AccuQuilt GO! Cutter.  Make sure your cutter is the right size for the BOB die.

This is a downloadable digital file that you will place into your personal block library.  Once you place the block file in your library, you will be able to use it immediately to draw and design quilts.  I have included all of the instructions to add the files to your EQ8 Design Software.  You will receive the EQ8 Block library, a block reference guide and an instruction document.  The blocks are all labeled to match the reference guide.

Now you can use the power of EQ8 to recolor and combine blocks to design beautiful quilts.

Once you have designed your quilt, you can use your AccuQuilt GO! Cutter to make it.  I have also included tips and suggestions for determining what dies to use and how to determine fabric requirements.

I hope you enjoy these files as you create your BOB design quilts.

Happy designing with your AccuQuilt Block on Board Set 1 library blocks in EQ8.
