EQ7: Seasons Row-A-Long & Giveaways

Welcome to my day of the
This is the final week to share
the rows that have been created.
I hope that you had a chance to check out
all the previous week's rows.  You can find the schedule here.
Thanks to Maria at Seams To Be Sew.  She has worked hard to get
amazing sponsors for this blog hop.
You can also see some blocks and color inspiration
  Facebook and Flickr.
Were you able to figure out what my row is?
I gave a few hints.
I choose Summer, because
it means time to enjoy my family with
absolutely no distractions.
Just the Water and a time or two in the Sand.
(It's hard to find much sand next to water in Colorado.)
This is my row.

 A little Waves and Flip Floppin' Fun!
It is relatively easy pieced row
with a little applique.
I have had EQ7 for about three years.
I am no expert at it,
but all the quilts that I complete are
ones that I have drawn up in EQ7 first.
For this, it was no different.
I knew that I wanted water in my
block.  For me it represents fishing trips,
swimming pools and summer vacations.
I just love the water.
When looking through EQ, I notices that the
Monkey Wrench block resembled a wave.
I thought that I would build on a block
that was already in EQ.
First, I added that block in my sketchbook.
Then, I started working away.
I like to go to the coloring option on the block
to see what I need to do to change it around.
I know that the block is close,
but I need to change a few things.
After changing the color on a few areas and adding a line or two,
I ended up with this. 
This is close, but I knew that I wanted
to add Flip Flops and change the row
a bit.
 That is one the great features of EQ7.
You can edit parts of the block by using the arrow in the upper left corner
and making a box around that area.
In  this picture, I rotated the inner box.
You can manipulate and play with
the blocks that are already in the EQ7 Library.
I could play and manipulate
different blocks and colors for hours.
This is the final block that I created.
It is a mix between piecing and applique.
You can find my FREE Row pattern HERE.   
You will have to register on Craftsy in order to get the pattern.
Instead of using applique on the flip flop strap,
I used DecoFoil in Lime. 
It adds a bit of bling to the block.

  16. Hi Amy I'm starting to quilt more now, I have finally retired. What are the reason behind all the quilting in a row?
    What would you use them for other than a border on a quilt. I have noticed a lot of them are labor intensive.
    Thanks for the listing of the great giveaways. I think the wave would be adorable on a rubber duckie baby

  43. Lovely row! I think that I will try this pattern with Batman fabric.

  44. I have not used Thermo Web before, but the Deco Foil seems similar to a product that was out years ago. The only difference was with that product you used glue, let it dry till tacky, then placed the foil over it and rubbed. It made really neat glittery areas on the fabric. Never used that either, but that's when I thought of when I saw the deco foil.

  45. I have not used Thermo Web products but would sure like to try! I don't do too many fusible projects but I do have a few in mind to try!

  55. I have not used the products but can's wait to try them

  56. I use Heat n Bond Lite for all my fusible applique. Have not tried any foils yet. Would love to though.

  57. For some reason, when I click on the link to go to craftsy to download your row, all I get is r.f1x1. If I try to search Craftsy for the row by row pattern, it doesn't come up. I haven't had a problem getting the other rows, just this one. Any suggestions? Thanks a million for these wonderful row by row patterns. Just loving how they all look.
