Do You EQ?

Designer, Kristina Brinkerhoff does!

Kristina Brinkerhoff had her first venture into quilting when she asked her mom to help her make a quilt one summer as a teenager. Her love of math quickly propelled her into sketching out and planning her own quilt designs. In her years of quilting, she’s also picked up a love of free motion quilting and foundation paper piecing. Her pattern company Center Street Quilts has a variety of both traditionally pieced and foundation paper pieced patterns. When she’s not at her sewing machine you can probably find her spending time with her husband and four kids, organizing something in her house, or napping.

“EQ8 is an invaluable part of my quilt design process! I use it almost every day and love having a quick way to test out ideas when inspiration strikes or experiment with different color combinations to see what I like best before committing to using actual fabric. Finding EQ8 was also a pivotal point in being able to produce professionally looking patterns as it provides me with high quality images and figures.”
