I just got the coolest email from Ann Waldron about EQ & quilting and “odd uses” for EQ. I’ll let her tell you about it:
I just wanted to share with you what my Dad makes using EQ. He does quite a bit of designing using the program and transforms the patterns into these wooden bowls. As you can see from the last picture, my Mom is a quilter too!
My Dad (Don Uteck) has been working with wood for as long as I can remember. He has been making these segmented bowls for just the last 5 or 6 years. I am actually the EQ user in the family and got him started on it. With my Mom being a quilter as well, it was natural for him to use quilt blocks in his bowls, although he uses other designs as well. This is mainly a hobby for him, but he does sell to friends and family that want to give special gifts. He also sells some bowls through the Yvette Moore Gallery in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. Many of the bowls have hundreds of pieces in them. I actually have one with 404 pieces but I know he has made some with many more pieces than that. I am so proud of my Dad and the work he does.
