New Product! Add-On EQ8 Block Library – Accuquilt Qube Five Patch Fun

The fun never ends! My newest Add-on EQ8 Block Library file is Five Patch Fun! I am excited to offer the next set of digital EQ8 Block Library files for the AccQuilt Qubes.  These files include 60 gorgeous Five Patch variation block designs that you can load into EQ8 Quilt design software. These convenient blocks make designing a breeze, and they are ready to cut out with speed and accuracy using your GO! Cutter.

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. Many of you have found the joy of using EQ8 to design your quilts.

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

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 quilts.

Required: A running copy of EQ8 Quilt Design Software.

60 Gorgeous Five Patch Blocks!

You receive 60 Five Patch Fun Block designs with new, creative and even familiar blocks. There are so many design possibilities in EQ8.

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

Since the Five Patch design is based upon a 5 x 5 grid, your finished block sizes will finish larger as indicated in the chart below.

The Five Patch Fun files are available in all Qube sizes.  They are color coordinated by size in the shop so you can find the size you need. You only need one size of EQ8 Qube files as you can use EQ8 to resize the quilt blocks.

Complete Instructions including Die Cutting Guide!

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

The Die Cutting Guide provides pictures of the Five Patch Fun 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 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!
