EQ user Evelyn Townsend recently emailed us with a project to share.


Evelyn says, “I designed the table runner project for the Friendship Circle chapter of the Richmond Quilt Guild.  We were in the third and final month of a three month “Purge and Splurge” challenge in which members were challenged to use fabrics from their stash that had a fall theme.  Since I am the program director, I thought a simple table runner would be a good project to use the fall fabrics.  I taught the class using the paper piecing technique since both log cabin and flying geese blocks can be challenging to piece accurately.  I did some fabric painting on my when I finished the quilting.”

  Here is the finished quilt. It looks great! You can download the project here, (for EQ7) if you’d like.

She has also offered other projects over the years. Here are a few more you can download.

Evelyn’s finished quilts are beautiful. Here is one she just sent us.

Evelyn says, “My sister asked me to make an Hawaiian quilt for her close friend who lives in Honolulu.  I used the templates in Elizabeth Root’s book, Hawaiian Quilting, to design this quilt. While I didn’t really need to create the templates in EQ7 to make the blocks, I wanted to put together the design to show to my sister before I made the quilt. The quilt is a gift from her to her special friend so it was important for her to see the quilt in the colors she requested before I started to construct it. EQ7 is so perfect! I really love this software!”

You can many more of her finished quilts in Quilt Gallery. We post the EQ projects and the finished quilts, and you can read more about the quilts and her quilting process.

I really like that some of her quilts use lots of different materials, quilting fabric, printable fabric, colored pencils for fabric, fabric paint, and more.

Thanks for sharing Evelyn!
