Laura Conowitch’s EQ wall hanging made with her granddaughter

Posted 09-04-2013 by | Posted in: Look What I Did

Laura Conowitch wanted a project to do with her 6 year old granddaughter, Alyssa. Laura says, “So we drew a project in Electric Quilt, and printed out templates. Alyssa used Crayola crayons to color her fabric butterfly and flower.  Then she cut out and fused the parts to a simple background that we had sewed together (Grandma applied fusible web to the fabric before Alyssa cut into the fabric) .” Read more about this great project on Laura’s website. So cute!

EQ7 Image Wortable and Modern Parrot By Dianne Gronfors

Posted 09-10-2012 by | Posted in: Look What I Did More for EQers

One of the big new features in EQ7 is the Image worktable. Once of the features of the Image Worktable is that is has 45 different image effects, including artistic, noise, blur and many more. There are also filters that allow you to sharpen, unsharpen, or detect the edges of your image. In browsing the July ClubEQ Challenge (this challenge was titled, “Birds!“) we found this quilt entry by Dianne Gronfors of Bracebridge, ON Canada. So cool! Dianne explains how she used the new features of the Image Worktable to create this quilt: “I picked an image of a parrot and then used Image>Apply Effects>Distort>Zoom Wave to come up with this modified image. I’ve set it as a one-block wall hanging that is reminiscent to me of modern art.” We love this beautifully creative thinking for both the Birds challenge and using the Image Worktable to design a stunning quilt.

Yesterday’s Vogue From Gloria Hansen

Posted 09-10-2012 by | Posted in: Look What I Did More for EQers

EQ author Gloria Hansen of the popular book Digital Essentials, is a member of an art group called 8 That Create. She created this piece called “Yesterday’s Vogue” for an upcoming exhibit in which all works must have a fashion theme. The size requirement was 12″ square. To that Gloria said, “Great. That means I can use EQ Printables, my favorite for inkjet printing on cotton.” We say “great!” too. This is such an awesome quilt and we hope it inspires other projects. Watch for more about this quilt in the coming months when Gloria will guest post on the NEW EQ Blog.

One of our favorite blogs to follow is that of AnneMarie, Columbus, Ohio, gen X quilters. Her modern style is fun and joyful. She’s a newer EQ7 user but WOW is she ever a fast learner! We met AnneMarie not too long ago and actually, Penny and Jenny just finished shooting episodes with her on Quilting Arts TV (available in 2013). Just the other day, AnneMarie posted this adorable block she made in EQ7: AnneMarie writes us and says,”Yesterday I posted the first paper piecing block I designed with EQ7. It’s a water pitcher block. I’m so thrilled with the results!! This has unleashed a whole new world of possibilities for me. I didn’t know how easy it was to design my own paper pieced designs using the software until now. Thought you might like to see…” Start following gen X quilters. You won’t regret it.
