Consider making one or more of the blocks or rows for your own project. 
Mix and match. 
Go big and make a quilt.
Or go smaller and make a wallhanging, a pillow for your sofa, 
or a table placemats for one of your favorite seasons. 

Have you made a block or row yet from last week's free pattern PDFs? 

Post your photo(s) to the Flickr group HERE  
and be eligible for entry into that giveaway? 

My Idea


I have plans to make this wallhanging so I can use it 
when celebrating birthdays and more. 

I have EQ7 with EQStitch installed. 
I used 3 of Janeen's present blocks 
from her PJ6 file that I downloaded HERE.

I incorporated Bea's filler rows ideas from her site HERE
I selected the "ribbon quilt" blocks from the Block Library.
I added them in the borders of the wallhanging and recolored them
so the pink and blue ribbons appear to be winding around and behind the stars. 

I designed the wallhanging by selecting Custom Set under the Quilt Worktable tab.
I set the size for 24" x 36" on the layout tab at the bottom of the worktable.
I added block borders (3" size) in the Borders tab at the bottom of the worktable.
I set the present blocks as I wanted them, which meant that I resized them.
EQ will print the pieces the size I need for my project 
regardless of the size they were designed. 
How cool is that!

When it came to adding the words, I went to the Stitch worktable. 
I added the words then repositioned the letters. 
I added this stitching to the quilt. 
The letters are not as bright as I would like in this exported image
but once they are made into the actual quilted wallhanging, they will be the color I want. 

I hope you get some ideas from this short description I have presented to you. 

Have fun!
