I love EQ because it allows me to see a quilt before actually making it.

Kelly Grace said...

I love playing with EQ to see different sizes of quilts, blocks, and colors. I like having an idea of what my finished quilt will look like before actually making the quilt.

Shasta Matova said...

I love seeing the pictures from your quilting years. A great idea to see how much you have progressed over the years. I have an old copy of EQ, but really like looking at different combinations of blocks and fabrics and seeing how they change the look of the quilt. How do you enter the fabric giveaway?

I have EQ, but still fall back to my graph paper and math charts and color pencils.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Pamela said...

I love EQ because I can design a quilt and see how much fabric I will need! I also love being able to look up rotary cutting instructions for setting triangles - I can never remember the formula for figuring those out. I could tell you so many reasons, I just about use it every day!

Oh happy day! 6 years of delightful quilting adventures!!!

As for EQ I don't know ~ I've never had the opportunity to 'play'. However, I do think that many hours of creative adventures could be had 'playing'!

Sowing Stitches said...

And as for the bundle of fun fabric they would be headed to my next scrappy round-robin quilt! That is if I don't use them up in spring place mats! Oh the joys of too many ideas! :)

Beth said...

An EQ would be fun for planning quilts! Happy Bloggyversery!

Beth said...

Island batik fabric would go into a jacket I am making for myself!

Beth said...

That is a beautiful selection of batiks - I only have a very few of those type fabrics & would love a variety to make some artsy type wall hanging to spruce up the hall bathroom wall that all my guests use. Congrats on the anniversary of your blog - reading your blog brings me much enjoyment! Thanks, Beth in AL

Quilter Kathy said...

cjmont said...

happy anny, i would love to have eq for color placement and layouts.

cjmont said...

i would love to make a scrappy batik quilt with these bundles.

Unknown said...

They would definitely go into a quilt. A batik quilt has been on my bucket list for a few years now. All my quilts have been gifts. The ones I have were made by grandmothers and great grandmothers and fit a double bed. Now my beds are queen sized, so after the gift I am working on now, I intend to start one for us.

Susan said...

I love EQ because of what I see others doing with it and that is also why I would love to win a copy. I have all these ideas in my head and no way to get them out.

Susan said...

I most likely would use them in a quilt.

Congratulations on your sixth blogaversary.

Happy Anniversary. And thank you for all the tutorials, inspirational posts and #CreativeGoodness you share, as well as giveaways. I'd love an EQ Tshirt, but those Island Batik fabrics are also yummy.

Happy Blogger-versary Bea! I'm obsessed with slippers, so I would make slippers for myself and family members with the batiks.

lefuntz said...

I am so happy EQ is now available for Macs.It is something I have always wanted to play with. I'm always amazed how many ways a pattern may be interpreted.

lefuntz said...

I don't know what I would make with those beautiful batiks. I'm sure they would tell me once I started playing with them.
