I’m so excited to share our User Spotlight with you today! You’ve seen her teaching the wildly popular Craftsy Block of the Month 2012, and now Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock is sharing with us how much she loves EQ7!
I’ve been quilting for 20 years, but once I discovered EQ7 in 2011, it had a profound affect on my design ability. I have so fallen in love with it, that I now use EQ7 in nearly every quilt I design. My favorite features are the ability to import swatches of actual fabric I plan to use (ie, auditioning fabrics), being able to easily print foundation paper piecing templates (love it!), and being able to quickly adjust measurements (anything that takes the brain damage out of quilt math for me is a godsend!).
EQ7 was an integral part of designing and creating templates for my 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month sampler quilt (below). Readers can watch free video tutorials and download patterns for all of these blocks HERE.
My lastest block of the month series is called The Sugar Block Club. It’s a monthly email pattern subscription that readers can find out more info on HERE. Below is our quilt from 2013, and it was such fun to design the blocks using EQ7 entirely.
I also used EQ7 to design Tilt-A-Whirl (below), which is entirely foundation paper pieced using EQ7 templates. Readers can purchase this pattern from me HERE.
