I love sharing photos of EQ-designed quilts and info about the designer! EQ users are always encouraged to send us photos of their projects so we can show our readers. I also like to follow our EQ Artists and share what they’re currently up to. Whether it’s a new book, free patterns or EQ tutorials, they’ve always got something worth sharing!
