People were asked to submit an original quilt designed in EQ with a creative interpretation of quilting using any of the EQ/QM Quilting Design software series. QM will be making the Grand Prize into a quilt for the designer and patterning it in an upcoming issue. Contestant identities were not revealed during judging.

SewCalGal's Virtual Christmas Quilt Show

Posted 12-15-2009 by Sarah | Posted in: Uncategorized

Darlene Simmons is SewCalGal of SewCalGal’s Blog. She is hosting a really neat show/give-a-way that we think you all should enter! It’s called the Virtual Christmas Quilt Show. You enter images of your Christmas quilts (finished or unfinished) to be included in the slide show of Christmas quilts on Darlene’s blog. She even encourages you to include little blurbs about your Holiday traditions and celebrations! It’s a really fun way to share your Holiday cheer and maybe get some inspiration for next years Holiday projects. I always think it’s fun to read about how other families celebrate this time of year as well. There are no judges in this give-a-way either. The “winners” are randomly selected to receive door prizes donated by quilting and sewing companies. Check out Darlene’s blog to see the list of prizes! Visit SewCalGal’s blog to submit your quilts to the Virtual Christmas Quilt Show .

If you are looking for a few last minute home made gift ideas, EQ staffer Heidi has a great one! She is making photo ornaments of her son Derek for her whole family. She used EQ6 to create a star block then put Derek’s photo in the center and then she’ll print his photo onto EQ Printable fabric. She plans to make them all just a little bit different and says that EQ6 makes it so each for her to plan each one. What a fun little stocking stuffer for the family, no?! Now lets just hope none of them see it on the blog first!

EQ in Germany

Posted 12-08-2009 by Sarah | Posted in: Uncategorized

This is really neat. Christiane is the moderator of the German Yahoo Group called “EQ_Hilfe”. She tells us that her group loves to use EQ with their Round Robin projects and that they even take the opportunity to turn each Round Robin project into an EQ lesson! They have completed a few Round Robin themes; “Winter” and “Summer”. For their “Winter” version the women learned how to set a custom layout and how to trace in EQ6. The group has a YouTube Channel where you can see the progression of their projects and it’s really fun to watch.  Christiane says, “The girls are very happy with their beautiful creations. We hope you are too!” Go check it out!

EQ6 – Man's Best Friend

Posted 12-07-2009 by Sarah | Posted in: Uncategorized

Fran Gonzalez, author of EQ6 Simplified, recently wrote us to share how she and her husband Larry used EQ6 to do their garage space: “We redesigned the garage/workshop in EQ6 before we moved a single thing. Larry was very impressed. We even inserted text to label all the carts, power tool stands, etc. Larry and I spent the last 10 days reorganizing the garage and setting up a woodworking shop for him. It’s really great now…so spacious and efficient. He’s happy as a clam, planning all sorts of projects. Now when I’m in here stitching, he’s out there sawing. Works out perfectly.“ Sounds like the best arrangement ever, Fran! How cool that EQ6 could help make the process easier. Thanks for sharing.
