Spotted: EQ Artists!

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: What you probably didn’t know is that Nancy’s original EQ7 design was

Do you EQ? Anita Grossman Solomon does!

Anita Grossman Solomon was first introduced to The Electric Quilt while watching the Great American Quilt Show. Penny was featuring EQ1, which Anita thought would solve her problems. Anita watched the show’s credits and called Penny, at home, to ask about the program. Previously, Anita had been making “quilting disasters” by  getting an idea and sewing without a plan. She is happy that EQ does the math for her and says that, “EQ is why I can do what I do.” When Anita began learning EQ she would pick a quilt out a magazine and attempt to reproduce it in EQ. (That’s a great idea and we sometimes have new hires at the office do it, too.) Anita said, “When, as a beginning quilter, I wanted to set blocks on point, I had absolutely no idea what size triangles to cut for the border. I scoured books and magazines for

A note from Bea: “I wanted to create a big “Jesus” in the middle of a table runner and then added an auto border and found the vine border and thought of the John 15:5 bible verse and added that on layer 2. I kept the colors in red and green Christmas colors.” -Bea Lee Download “Jesus” Table Runner Catch up with Bea >>

A note from Linda: “Quilters who use Inklingo know that you don’t have to be an expert quilter with advanced skills to sew a stunning  Double Wedding Ring quilt. Print the cutting and stitching lines on fabric with your ordinary Inkjet, rotary cut, and piece by sewing along the printed lines. Christmas Rings can be sewn by hand OR by machine. Some quilters will want to sew some seams by hand when they need something portable and sew the rest by machine. When we mix hand and machine piecing in a quilt, we call it an Inklingo hybrid.” -Linda Franz Giveaways and freebies: 1. Visit the All About Inklingo blog and submit a comment to be entered for a $50 Inklingo gift certificate AND free fabric from Northcott! 2. The Inklingo Double Wedding Design Book will be free to everyone today through December 31st!  ($20 value, PDF download). Download “Inklingo

A note from Patti: “This is a quilt that I designed for this year’s Quilts From 100 Blocks, based on a block that I designed (in EQ of course) for 100 Blocks Volume 9.  I really liked the Christmas Traditions collection by Tracey Sims for Northcott, especially the cardinal border stripe, and this quilt seemed a great way to showcase it.  When I made up the quilt for the magazine, it looked just like my EQ image!” – Patti Carey Download “Christmas Traditions” Catch up with Patti >>
