Red and White Block Design in EQ7


After being inspired by Fran Gonzalez’s online EQ classes at, Christine Brown organized an Electric Quilt self-help bee group in the Denver area. They started meeting twice a month for a year, bringing laptops, manuals, and current projects to each meeting. All eight members were so impressed with the red and white quilt exhibit in New York City that they decided to make a red and white bee group quilt (featuring their original EQ-designed blocks) for exhibit at their our local guild’s 2012 show.

Here is one of the blocks Christine designed using Serendipity. In fact, she designed so many new blocks that she’ll have to make her own red and white quilt.

Is there a pattern for this quilt, that you can buy. Please let me know. I love it.

Hi Pam, It is a lovely block, isn’t it. It was shared by Christine Brown as inspiration showing the possibilities using EQ software. Hopefully it will inspire lots of great ideas, but no pattern was offered for this block. Thanks, Betsey

I would love to get this pattern……… it’s just exquisite!

Please don’t show a block unless it is free or for sale. What is the point. I’m sure quilters would happily pay for the pattern.

What was the finished size of the above block? I too would love a pattern, but have most of it figured out..IF I have the correct sizing…Thanks in advance

Hi Deb, Since it’s designed on a 16 x 16 grid, I’m guessing it is a 32″ block. But you can pick the measurement you want the individual squares in the grid to adjust the size. At 32″ each square would represent 2″ finished. Thanks, Betsey

Thanks Betsey..I was planning a 2 inch square. Had problems figuring how to put the blocks together until I printed out the picture above, then made copies and started playing with “placement”. Material is almost prepped…getting excited to start … Right after I finish my daughter’s top!
