Char O’Leary is quite the busy lady.

She regularly designs quilts for Marcus Fabrics (previously Marcus Brothers Fabrics) with their new lines for quilt market. Of course she uses EQ6 to do so.

Most recently her quilt, made with Marcus Fabrics’ new line Natural Effect, was featured in this summer’s issue Quick Quilts by Harris Publishing (page 10).

The coloring is relaxing and so serene and the layout really takes advantage of the large scale fabric.

Char also has a quilt that she designed in EQ6 included in the book My Stars: Patterns from The Kansas City Star by Kansas City Star Quilts.

Char says, “I have pretty much done everything I ever wanted to on EQ6.” She scans in her own fabric (or gets it from websites) and she uses EQ6 to make and sell her own patterns.

Her website,, is being revamped but you can contact her at for patterns, classes or more information.

Also look for her Halloween-themed quilt in the Fall issue of Quick Quilts, due out August 25th.
