We love coming across EQ users in quilting magazines… and we also love seeing EQ Artists in quilting magazines! Recently, we spotted three EQ Artists:
When I asked Bea Lee if her “Stars at Night” quilt was designed in EQ7, she replied: “Of course it was!!” She also told me she had originally named it “Ghostbusters” and had gone through several renditions of the quilt before deciding on the final design shown in the August/September 2015 issue of Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine. Here are images of her process in EQ7:
When I asked Nancy Mahoney if she used EQ7 to design her featured quilt, she replied, “I use EQ7 to design all my quilts!” If you’ve seen Nancy Mahoney’s “Boxing Match” quilt in the September/October ’15 issue of Quiltmaker magazine, you’d remember it looking like this:

Here’s an image of her original EQ7 design that she called “Mojito Quilt”:
