New Product! EQ8 Block Library File: Accuquilt BOB Set 1

 

Ever since I published my EQ8 block library files for the Accuquilt GO! Qube Mix & Match sets, the requests have been coming in for more.  I decided to put together 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.

You can purchase these downloadable blocks in my shop HERE!

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

New Products Available: EQ8 Block Library for Accuquilt Blocks

 

 

 

I am very excited to introduce a new product in my shop.  Most of you know that I am an EQ8 Superfan.  I design my quilts in EQ8, I teach EQ8, and I use EQ8 to create my original patterns.  This past year I finally jumped on the Accuquilt bandwagon and became an Accuquilt GO! Getter.  I love how quickly I can cut out a quilt and have a project all ready to sew.

I received an 8″ GO Qube with my Accuquilt GO! Cutter.  I really wanted to design with the Accuquilt 8″ blocks in EQ8, but there was not a library file of the blocks to be found, so I decided to create them.  I got approvals from both companies and created a downloadable file containing all of those Accuquilt blocks drawn in EQ8.  Now they are available in my shop.

The blocks provided by Accuquilt to use with the GO! Qube are all Four patch blocks.  These blocks are based upon a 2 X 2 grid, the most popular style of quilt block.

Accuquilt provides 216 Block designs with their popular GO! Qube die sets

  • For the base GO! Qube Mix and Match die set, there are 72 blocks.
  • For the add on Companion CORNERS set, combined with the Mix and Match die set, there are 72 blocks.
  • For the add on Conpanion ANGLES set, combined with the Mix and Match die set and the Companion Corners set, there are 72 blocks.

For my product launch, I am offering EQ8 Library files with a set of blocks that match them.  They contain the GO! Qube Mix and Match set, the Add On Companion Corners set, and the Add on Companion Angles set for a combined total of 216 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.

Required: A running copy of EQ8 Quilt Design Software.

It 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.  You will receive the EQ8 Block library, a block reference guide and an instruction document.  The blocks are all labeled and colored similarly to the blocks provided by Accuquilt so they are easy to match up.

The files currently come in five sizes, 6″, 8″, 9″, 10″ and 12″ sizes.  They are color coordinated by size in the shop so you can find the size you need.

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.

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 Four Patch 2 X 2 grid design quilts.
