I have other things I should be posting about, but as I sat down to catch up during toddler nap time,I suddenly recalled waking up this morning - I have often read of people, quilters, etc, keeping a notebook by their beds to jot down sleepy time ideas. Never done it, it would involve scrabbling about for specs, finding a pen, knocking something off my table and generally causing mayhem.
But this morning I woke up quite suddenly and was acutely aware of a quilt block in my head, maybe I have seen it somewhere but I decided just now, to have a play on EQ7 and see what might become of it.

So here is Dream Block - 4 Drunkard's Path blocks intersected by narrow sashing and a middle tiny patch.

Wonder what it would look like multiplied into a quilt?

And then I wondered about putting more sashing in, between the blocks..........

and then, maybe switching round some colours and ditching the border,

I could probably waste hours at this, switching colours & values - that's the beauty of EQ7, sometimes you don't ever need to actually  make a quilt. 


  1. Now that's a way to keep my sewing room tidy and my clothes thread free!

  2. I bet you could spend hours doing that! Think the first one is my favourite - when are you starting it?!!

  3. One of these days I will get the time to learn my EQ7. I love the block though.

  4. Ooh Yes!! They are all great!!

  5. Oooh I love that block and I especially like the colours you chose in the first pic.
    Now that EQ7 is available for Mac I've been contemplating buying it. Do you really think it is worth getting?

  6. Hours of fun and entertainment!

  7. wow, fabulous block and would make a stunning quilt. Reminds me of a tiny block that Susan flossyblossy made a few years back and I have it stored away in my favs on Flickr ready for the day when I have nothing else to do! Need to store this one away too!!
