Posted 02-04-2016 by Christine | Posted in: Favorite Posts From Our Users Q&A

You’re probably looking at this adorable quilt wondering where you saw it… It’s on the cover of the newest Quiltmaker Magazine! “Zoe Zebra” was designed by EQ user, Deb Grogan. I couldn’t pass up the chance to talk with her about this one! Read through my interview with Deb to find out how she created this cute quilt! EQ: Congrats on making the cover of Quiltmaker Magazine! Your Zoe Zebra quilt is just adorable! How does it feel to see YOUR design on the cover?! Deb: Well, it was quite a surprise that’s for sure and quite an honor.  This is actually my very first magazine submission too. EQ: Wow! Well good for you, that’s incredible!

Contest is now closed. Doreen Hendrickson is our winner! Kelly Mueller is the owner and designer behind The Wooden Bear! The Wooden Bear sells adorable patterns, kits, and other sewing related products. I asked Kelly to tell us a little bit about herself and her experience and success with EQ Printable Inkjet Fabrics. Read our Q&A below: EQ: First of all, let’s hear a little about you! Kelly: I grew up in Independence, Missouri, just outside of Kansas City.  I attended college and received my bachelor’s degree in Accounting.  I went for the accounting degree because it fits me- I’m a bit of an organized analyzer- but also because I grew up crafting.  I thought if I could find a craft that I thoroughly enjoyed, and could be a viable business, I would have what I needed to begin.  I also met my husband, Brian, in college.  He makes life…

Yvonne Menear and The Langley Quilt Guild

Posted 12-30-2015 by Heidi | Posted in: From Our Users Just Because Uncategorized

Our EQStitch guru, Yvonne Menear, recently let us know about a quilt raffle in which she used EQ (of course). Yvonne says, “The design was created in EQ7 by myself and I worked with another member, Debra Sanderson, to promote the quilt with the members.  The members took the paper pieced patterns I created in EQ7 and stitched the blocks with the fabrics chosen by Debra and myself.  We then took the blocks the members constructed and made the quilts.  Of course, we knew exactly how it would turn out because it was designed in EQ7.  The members had a great time trying to figure out what we were going to do with the blocks!  The quilting was done by Barbara Bettles and bound by Pat Lundgren, also members of our guild.  The guild was really happy to see the completed quilts presented at the November guild meeting. This is…
