Black is such a great color to make designs pop. I saw a quilt (appropriately named) “Black Beauty” in the March/April issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine. Jennifer Bosworth used EQ to design the pattern, so I thought I’d ask her more about it.

Jennifer says: “I did finalize the design in EQ6. I had sketched it initially on graph paper and then it was nice to bring in the fabrics and drawings and audition different fabrics.

Designing a quilt with EQ allows me to see exactly what my finished quilt will look like. I can audition several fabric and color variations before settling on the perfect combination! I would definitely recommend this software to anyone that enjoys designing their own quilts!

The quilt uses a really pretty black and pink floral from Marti Michell’s “Wild Roses” collection for Maywood Studio.

Get the March/April 2011 issue of McCall’s Quilting to have the pattern. The kit is available from Jennifer’s website.
