Magic Crystals was designed using the EQ7 software. We frequently design quilts in grayscale as a way of focusing on the design and “balance” of a quilt first. Then later (after we’re happy with the design) we try out color combinations or actual fabrics that we think will emphasize and compliment the design.
The “magic” in the Magic Crystals quilt is that the blocks are sewn into straight set rows but end up on point! It’s just one of a series of 6 “Magic” quilts we’ve designed (1 still in development). This particular quilt has a secondary design that appears around the center and is reminiscent of crystals (hence the quilt name, Magic Crystals!).
