DO YOU EQ?
Designer and author, Alyce Blyth does!
Alyce Blyth began her quilting journey when her two children were just babies. It took a few years until they each had a quilt and in the process, she became hooked on her passion and purpose.
When her family moved from Australia to Chiba, Japan, it was there that she became truly passionate about turning her hobby into her career. With a primary school teaching background, Alyce discovered that the quilting industry was the perfect blend of the things she loved most – creativity, puzzles and teaching.
Now living back in Melbourne, Australia, she has had patterns published in magazines around the world, writes columns and articles, self-published her first book, DIY Block Design, and continues to remain passionate about helping other quilters to make what they love, with love, to love.
Alyce regularly shares projects and tutorials at Blossom Heart Quilts, where you can also find her catalogue of quilting patterns – from kawaii Japanese-inspired designs, to minis and cushions, and full multi-sized quilt patterns.
“EQ8 helps my quilt design ideas come to life! With this powerful program, I am able to quickly sketch out and colour in my ideas… and just as quickly change things around to try something else. While I love my graph book for on the go brain dumps, all designs still go through EQ8 to help refine and confirm my final decision.”
