Ebony is best-known as the Queen of Fabric Die Cutting, and you may recognize her from her frequent appearances on Quilting Arts and Quilty with Mary Fons. She is also the author of several books, including the best-selling and award-winning The Big Little Book of Fabric Die Cutting Tips.
“Electric Quilt is one of those tools in my designing toolbox that I could not live without. I love working with geometric shapes and playing with traditional blocks, and the thousands of blocks in the EQ Libraries gives me a great starting point for my quilting designs.
Some of my favorite features of EQ include Serendipity, the Block Worktable and Custom Layout. These tools allow me to tweak designs and truly make them my own.
EQ also makes designing for die-cutting extremely easy. I can quickly check the rotary cut sizes against the available dies using my Equivalent Die Notation (EDeN™) Charts, which speeds up my pattern writing and quilt making. It has become an integral part of publishing my magazine for fabric die-cutting enthusiasts, Blocks to Die For, and allows me to generate block and quilt layouts in different colorways and styles without needing to make sample quilts for everything out of real fabric.”
