Quilt out of my box with 'The Quilt Show' Challenge - Episode #104 Part 1

In 'The Quilt Show' episode #104 the challenge is mainly about design and color. I am not sure how Cheryl Malkowski managed to stop making quilts with this simple and versatile block! I started playing on EQ6 and soon found out that the possibilities truly are endless. The challenge turned out to be when to shut my computer down.

I did make sample blocks in both the 6" and 3" size. I really liked how Cheryl constructed them. I often use the same idea to make a block a bit bigger and trim it to size (it only works on the simple blocks though).

Here are just a few of the designs I produced with the help of EQ6. I colored them all in greys mainly because I had to decide on just one to reproduce and I didn't want color to affect my choice.

These are my favourites of the bunch. So which one do you like the best? Which one will I re-create?

Stay tuned for the reveal ! I have all the blocks made now and just need to sew it all together.

Happy quilting!


  1. I like #5, looks like organized chaos.

  2. I like 3, 4 and 6...I cant wait to see which one you chose and the colors.


  3. Great design plans you have going here! I love EQ! What fun!
