Birthday block 2016

I am participating once again on my Bee's "birthday block" activity. We each make blocks for each other of our own choice; and on the month of our birthday, we get the blocks that we requested. 
EQ7 Block designed by me
I have requested the "Swoon" block.
I am also learning how to use my EQ7 program; and decided to draft the block at 12 inches size using the program. It was a lot of fun to dust some brain cells. I am so glad I did it.
EQ7 prints templates and rotary cutting directions; and that is what I gave my friends. 
I learned that I should have added more directions than that. It seems that the block has been very challenging to make.
I do hope I still have friends in the end. But I can't wait for July when I get my blocks.
