I was checking out the oh-so-lovely EQ Quilt Gallery and saw a quilt that reminded me of an awesome EQ software tip!
You can import a picture of a quilt center. Set the picture in the center of a custom set rectangle (the finished size). Then add borders around it.
Quilt #180 Round Robin by Mona Beck
Mona writes: “This quilt is why I bought EQ. This was a challenge for Carol Doak’s Yahoo group. She issued a set of criteria each month for the center, then each round, and we had to come up with a design that fit the criteria. I was having such a hard time visualizing colors and patterns that I decided to buy EQ, and do it the easy way. I started the design with a photo of what I had done up to the point I got the program, then designed the next rounds using EQ.”

Use this same tip for using panel prints!
Awesome job Mona!
