A Stunning Quilt: New to BlockBase+

 

I had this small photocopy of a quilt pattern--- not much information, "A Stunning Quilt" read the headline and it looked like an Alice Brooks/Laura Wheeler syndicated design. 





I sent it to the programmers at Electric Quilt.

Voila!




Now that it's in the new BlockBase+  you can print it any size.
 #3369 would seem to be perfect for EPP, making
a paper template for each piece, etc.

Here BlockBase+ has drawn the patterns for a 9" block. It's a circle in a square with a six-sided shape in the center. The algorithm gives us a template for every piece. I think of Al Gorithm as a human in the back room to whom I must explain everything. Al usually wins as I have no idea what I am talking about.


But here I am going to email Al and ask if the corner pieces are not the same and could thus be one template, etc.

When I first started working for EQ I was explaining (trying to explain) the seam allowance concept to the chief programmer. Suddenly a light bulb went off linking sewing land to programming land. "Oh. A simple algorithm!" says he. Me, I says, "Whatever," and went home and looked up the word algorithm (a formula to shorten programs.)

And now we have a simple algorithm called Quilt Layout which gives you a variety of sets for each block.

Here is the block set all over in a grid.

And on point.

  4. I'm super excited to tell the public that I have been permanently cured from herpes by Dr Agbomina . I had herpes for years but everyone told me that there was no cure to it and every doctor I contacted failed to cure me until I contacted Dr Agbomina , he placed me on diet and also sent his medicine to me and today I'm free and my lab test confirmed it. You can contact Dr Agbomina via his WhatsApp +234(805)049-5479 or email: dragbonherbalmedicine@gmail.com You can visit his Website at https://dragbonherbalmedic.wixsite.com/welcometodoctoragbon
