Recently, I came across some really astonishing quilts and just had to find out if they were designed in EQ! I contacted Amy Krasnansky, the designer of these quilts, and as it turns out, she IS an EQ user!

Amy Krasnansky began quilting in five minute increments snatched while tending her toddler son fifteen years ago. After covering her household, friends, and family with quilts, she began entering them in shows and contests. She has designed quilts for Quilter’s World magazine and the book Quilts Made With Rulers. Her quilt Time Flies But We Take the Train won grand prize in the Grand Central Terminal Centennial contest, and her quilt Do You See What I See? was recently declared a finalist in the National Quilt Museum’s 25th Anniversary contest. She works part-time as a software engineer and lives in Baltimore with her husband and two children. For more of her work, visit

Here are some of Amy’s artistic designs:

Amy was nice enough to offer some of her designs as free project downloads for EQ7 users!

Amy’s Notes:

9 Patch demonstrates a strategy that I often use in designing with EQ – combining different blocks from the same family in a symmetrical pattern (i.e. all 9 patch-based blocks or all 4 or 5 patch-based blocks).

Reverse is a different strategy – using one block but reversing the colors in alternate blocks.

Owls and Elephant Crossing are simple applique quilts for babies/kids.

Here are the four projects:
