A note from Toby: “I used a snowman applique design that was in EQ, added the facial features and outlined the snowman to look like I put a running stitch around it. I learned a lot of things while designing this quilt since I had never done anything like it before. I thought putting it in front of the star blocks made it more interesting. It can be hung all winter instead of just during the holiday season. If you’d like the sewing instructions for Frosty, visit my blog!” – Toby Lischko Download “Frosty” Catch up with Toby >> Click here to get the sewing instructions by leaving a comment along with your email address on Toby’s Blog post!

A note from Lerlene: “With the blocks in this project your designs can be subtle or striking – it all depends on value. Use colors close in value and the effect is subtle. Use high contrast and the quilt sings. You’re the conductor – you choose the instruments and make the music. (I haven’t veered off into another universe – I’m still talking “quilting.”) To get multiple layouts in a hurry, activate the Symmetry tool and watch the fireworks. Flip through the quilts in the sketchbook. The yellow shapes look like circles behind a gray and purple lattice. Have fun with the basics as you change them into your own masterpiece.” – Lerlene Nevaril Download “Color Play” Catch up with Lerlene >>

A note from Sandi: “I’ve always loved the red and white twist look from a candy cane! It reminds me of the excitement of Christmas!  Even more, I love the excitement in a child’s eye when they see a Christmas tree…seemed right to mix the two into a holiday table runner.” -Sandi Blackwell Download “Candy Cane Trees” Catch up with Sandi >>

A note from Gail: “Are you as excited as I am for the new episodes of Downton Abbey? As owner of Ladyfingers Sewing Studio in Oley, PA, our new collections of Downton Abbey fabric inspired me to create a fun easy-to-sew table runner to enjoy all season long. I just loved using the fussy cutting feature of EQ7, as well as the ability to rotate the fabrics when creating the runner design.” -Gail Kessler Visit Gail’s blog for a fabric kit and sewing tutorial for this great project!
