From reading several quilting blogs, I get the impression that lots of quilters are using EQ to help them design quilts. I must admit, it looks like a fabulous tool and a part of me really wants to get my hands on that software – but I can’t justify the expense right now. My quilts are all designed with graph paper and colored pencils. I know. I’m very technologically advanced.
Anyway, I wanted to design a quilt around my tilted squares block and that is just not a block that I can recreate on graph paper. So I made one mockup block, took a picture, flipped it in photoshop and copied it a lot. Voila:
This is not quite what the finished quilt is going to look like. I’m playing around with the widths of the strips I use and that is just some leftover fabric I found lying around. This is definitely not the color scheme I am going for!
I’m very excited about this quilt and about getting back to quits in general. I’ve been doing so many smaller projects that it seems like forever since I made a quilt. Well, I’ve decided that September is the month for quilts! I have three quilts I want to make and seriously need to get down to business. I’ll keep you posted…
