What if I made a Whole Quilt with this one?

After making Block nine of the Jelly Roll Quilt Along, I thought about it a bit.  I think it would be a great block to make an entire quilt from.


So I did this one in my photo editor
Block_9 quilt


Then I did the following ones after drafting the block in EQ5:





Then with a smaller, different layout and border, but the same blocks:


Yeah, I think the wider black border really makes it pop.


The Designer of the block is Toby Lischko of Gateway Quilts & Stuff, Inc. Website:

I love it!! I knew it was going to br "Beautiful" you did it... I like the one with the wider black border, it brings out all your colors and makes them more intense and vibrant !!!

I like the one with the wider black border also. Especially with the reds. I love black and bright quilts :)

This is a fun block that looks great on it's own. I still need to make mine.
Hope you have a great day.

I also like #2 and #3 the best. I need to learn the drafting feature a lot better in EQ....because I'm not able to do yet what you did with the block...and it's SO helpful to see it all these various ways before buying (and cutting) the fabric!!!

You are just having too much fun with that program....

Yes I agree with Barb you are having fun with EQ. I've yet to see it in action, but plan on it soon. You really have me interested in it for sure. I've gone from never heard of it before to must have it now!

What a great block. And so neat that you can look at ways to use it.
