This curved star hexagon block is driving me crazy and making me wonder why I am attempting to use EQ to draw it when I have perfectly good templates that fit together well. Of course, I can answer my own question by saying that I don't want to draw the block in EQ for the templates or the fabric yardage or any of those other wonderful functions that EQ has to offer. I just want to be able to place the block the way I want it in a variety of quilt layouts on the screen.
This is how the people at the EQ forum drew the block for me.
EQ sees this as a square block and I want to eliminate the top and bottom pieces. I traced my templates, scanned them, imported them and traced the shapes using EasyDraw. The block is still not right - I have distorted the angles of the cones and the triangles between them - they should all be the same size but in my drawing they are not.
I have had enough. Some things are not meant to be. I will just have to play with the actual blocks I have sewn on the design wall until I find a layout I like and until I have developed my EQ skills further. So frustrating!
