If you can't quilt then EQ!

Since I'm not doing much quilting/ sewing
I have been playing in EQ a little.

I am not sure if I showed these first two designs before, these were actually for the EQ challenge in July. If you have EQ7 and want to learn more, joining the monthly challenge here is a great way to get better. They post a "theme" - here it was birds, then you make 1 or 2 layouts and send it to them, at the end you get a copy of everyone elses files too and you can sit and figure out how they did it.



Here's a boy and girl version of a buggy quilt with alternate star blocks.



Then I started playing with rainbow colors, here using 2 different diamond in a square blocks and coloring from the middle and out.

be reminded that it means the covenant between God and Noah and God won't flood the earth again.


this is the layout before I colored it- totally different!


but looks neat in fall colors


or my favorite blue colors!


here I did a similar idea with just nine patches


(10 days to go)

Hi Bea, Isn't EQ just the best way to waste hours and hours and hours. I love it. It is such fun and so addictive. I LOVE the rainbow coloured one.

Love how just changing the colour layout can give you a totally different quilt! The rainbow is fab!

Not long to go now - exciting!

At least you had fun playing with your EQ. I love, love, love the rainbow one and want to make it if you are so inclined to share the details with me.
