Marlene Howe was an early EQ user, and sales rep who demonstrated and sold EQ when the company was just starting. She recently created a quilt paying tribute to the many quilt teachers she’s had over the years. She included EQ in this very special quilt and we’re so honored to be a part of it! Here’s a close-up of her EQ block. We love it! On the back of the quilt, she included the story of each block/teacher. In her story about Electric Quilt, Marlene writes that she bought her first computer just to be able to use the software. What a lovely way to document your special quilting memories. A very special thank you to Marlene for allowing us to share this wonderful quilt!
