We LOVE to see what EQ users create whether it be in a magazine, blog post, social media, anything! One of our favorite places to see EQ users featured is at trade shows. We couldn’t be happier for these EQ users who won awards at QuiltCon 2023!
Nikki Woolsey: Fibonacci’s Cabin for APQ Log Cabin Quilting Challenge
“When the design challenge for the modern log cabin was announced for QuiltCon 2023, I went straight to EQ8 to start working with designs. I already had a modified log cabin block that I had been playing with, and EQ8 allowed me to layout over 25 quilts to test ideas and colorways. For the final design, I used the custom layout option so that I could incorporate blocks from 3 to 39 inches in the final design. I even printed foundation patterns directly for the smaller blocks. EQ8 was the design tool that brought my quilt to life.”

Elizabeth K Ray: Value Added for Windham Ruby+Bee Fabric Challenge
“I use EQ8 to design most of my quilts. My favorite part in EQ8 is playing with color palettes and color placements. This helps me narrow down and finalize the colors before cutting and sewing the quilt. “

Betsy Vinegrad: Concentric for APQ Log Cabin Quilting Challenge
“I design almost everything in EQ. “
Fiona Johnstone: Ruby Curvelets for People’s Choice Award
“Most of my quilt was done off the cuff, but I did plan out one of the blocks using EQ8. I love using EQ8 as a way to play around with shapes and colours without having to redraw something a bunch of times! It’s quicker to experiment than drawing on graph paper. “
