If you’ve ever called our customer service line, chances are you’ve heard Linda’s friendly voice on the other end of the line. Linda has worked at EQ for several years, but she just recently designed her first quilt in EQ7!

“She’s just now using EQ7?!?” you ask…. Well, Linda has a Mac at home so, along with many other people, she’s been patiently waiting for the Mac release of EQ7. And now that she’s had a chance to work with the software a bit, she has a finished quilt to show off. Linda thought she was just sharing her quilt with those of us in the office, but we all loved it so much I wanted to share it on the blog too!

Linda designed the quilt to use with a Block of the Month program she did. She followed this tutorial on the blog to import photos of her finished blocks and design a quilt around them. Here’s her design in EQ7:

It’s called “Merry Mike-mas” — a gift for her husband, Mike. Look at this cute label that Christine, another EQ employee, designed for Linda (printed on EQ Printables, of course!):

Linda has also agreed to let me share her project file with you! The quilt design included in the project is waiting for you to fill with your own block-of-the-month blocks (or any twelve 12″ blocks!). Make your own BOM quilt really pop with this gorgeous border!
