Thumbing through American Quilter, Marla Whalen’s quilt Garden in the Round just jumped off the page! The bright colors on the block background catch your eye for sure. So I got in touch with her to find out more about how EQ6 helped her design this beautiful quilt:

Yes, the quilt was designed in EQ…it started in 5, but by the time it got made and finished it ended up in 6! Folks might be interested to know that EQ was quite a fabric-saver for this one! I hate to waste fabric anyway…but the bright pieces for this one were remnants, so I didn’t want to cut a lot of these odd shapes that I wouldn’t end up using. EQ let me figure out exactly what I wanted to put where, so I had no fabric wasted!
