It was a lovely surprise a few weeks ago when I opened my latest Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine and found this as I was paging through:
I knew the ad would be coming, just not when. It is such a thrill for me to be in an EQ ad. My first version of the software was EQ3 and I’ve been playing ever since. What a great program! Among other things, EQ taught me confidence. It made it so easy to begin designing my own quilts. I could immediately see what I liked and didn’t in a design. I learned about color and value and balance in a design.
The latest version has so many new fun gadgets that are a blast to play with and make designing easier than ever. In future blog entries I’ll write about how I use EQ6 in my own quilt designs. (Random Recolor, Serendipity, Automatic Borders – oh, how I love you!)
But, for today, I thought I would simply show a quilt with a couple variations that I designed. Click here to go to my website where you can download the EQ6 project file. Note, the first: the quilt design is copyrighted. You have my permission to make it up for personal use or to donate to charity endeavors. Note, the second: I don’t have directions for this written up (apologies to anyone interested). It is available only as an EQ6 project.
And, no, this one is not a miniature!
And because one of the things I love about EQ software is how easy it makes it to try a quilt with different fabrics and because what’s not to like about pink and brown together, here are two other versions of the same pattern:
I think this could be really fun done up in some large-scale bright contemporaries but I haven’t gotten to that design point yet. I have started on the red, white, and blue version, however. Any chance I could have this done by the 4th? (N0.)
