I would like to offer a Block of the Week to my quilting friends using a 12 block sampler, intermediate to hard, pieced or a combination of pieced and appliqued -- with no copyright issues.   Something that will knock your socks off.   Does anyone have suggestions?  I have EQ7, but little experience in designing.

i have done this with friends and a favorite neice. i have had blockbase the book and cd for years, tho my original blockbase was a doss floppy :)). if the friends are helping pick blocks, take a book of block patterns in or a laptop that you can all look at and go online. there are literally hundres of pages of free, copyright free quilt blocks w directions for making...many sites offer blocks in different sizes. just search 'quilt block patterns' ..the layout can be simple straight set or whatever you want. but i would suggest keeping it simple. one quilt i designed for a group who requested a class in machine piecing was stymied by the setting i chose. star in center with drunkards paths and blocks placed around. idea to go from simple to complex, then progress to curved and diamond piecing. no applique. no one finished. lesson learned. keep it simple.
