Since this block is combined with applique and piecing you want to make sure to design your block in the Easy Draw + Patchdraw mode! Draw your patchwork grid - I used a 5 x 5 grid.
Next, switch over to applique mode using the tab at the bottom:
Select the teardrop shape using the drawing tool button for ovals. If you want you can edit the curves a bit, then using the clone tool under the red arrow, make 11 identical copies:
Drag your teardrops to the desired spots and use the flip tools to turn them in the correct orientation.
Once the dialog box comes up make sure that the size of the block is correct. I have frequently printed the wrong size by mistake! You can also choose if you want to print a key block, show seam allowance (and choose size of seam allowance) as well as number of copies.
Here is the completed quilt on EQ7.
As you can see, EQ is useful for a lot of tasks in quilting - I'll be back next month with another project, I'm sure!
Make sure you take a look at Quilt Shop Gal's blog post for today - she features Wendy Sheppard - who has used EQ to design many quilts! There are even free patterns you can download for some of the quilts. I'll be joining in next week on a blog hop featuring Wendy's new book. Make sure you join along, you could win a copy of it, and there will be Island Batik fabric as well!
