One of our users, Lynda DeTray, says,“I’ve just returned from the Sauder Village Quilt Show here in Ohio and was thrilled to see that my quilt, Diamonds & Rust, won third place in the Large Wall Quilt/Machine Quilted division. I originally created the quilt in EQ7 as a finalist in the 2012 McCall’s Quilt Design Star contest. I love using EQ7 to design; it’s so versatile and allows me to manipulate different elements of the quilt until I’m satisfied with both the design and the ease with which I can piece the design. (I had written a blog post about my design process here and check out here for a photo of my winning quilt. I also want to share a tip for using EQ. I’ve created a lot of designs in EQ, some that I’ve made and many that I haven’t gotten to yet. I had enough designs where
Spring is in the air! We are loving these cheerful photos in a quilt by Janet Quam. She writes: “Here is a quilt I designed in EQ7 and made using my photos printed on EQ Printables Cotton Satin Inkjet Fabric Sheets. The tulips in Skagit Valley are out and beautiful this month.” ~ Janet Quam View Janet’s quilt in the EQ Quilt Gallery and don’t forget to leave her a comment! Shop EQ Printables Fabric Sheets
Cindi Allen from seamstobeyouandme.com says… “I thought you’d like to see how I love using EQ. I make a LOT of t-shirt quilts, and like giving my customers a hint of what their quilt may look like when it’s finished, and to show them how different fabrics can affect the look of the quilt. I’m slowly – but surely – learning EQ, but I’ve become quite adept using it for my T-shirt quilts. And customers love having different looks to choose from. It certainly saves me time, and gives the customer confidence in what they’re getting! I did a blog post on it here. Thanks so much for making a GREAT product that I (and my customers!) can rely on!!!” She also has a great tutorial on making t-shirt quilts here. Great job, Cindi. Thanks for sharing!
We always love hearing from EQ users who have won with their EQ designed quilts. We are always impressed with what you are able to do with EQ7 and then amazed at how you bring a virtual quilt to life with stunning execution. It’s never a surprise to us that so many of you are recognized for your designs and talent. This time, we congratulate Serena Vrnak on her win in the Master Division Large Pieced category at the Dallas, Texas quilt show. Serena writes: “This may be the wrong place to acknowledge how pleased I am with EQ7 but, it helped me win 3rd place in the Master Division Large Pieced category in the Dallas, Tx. quilt show. I first acquired EQ7 a year ago to take me from graph paper. I was truly surprised with how many designs I could produce with just one block. I am a fan of EQ7.” ~ Serena Vrnak,
One of our long time EQ users, Linda Erickson, emailed us a photo of an EQ designed quilt she entered in a contest and took 2nd place! Linda originally won a set of AccuQuilt GO! heart appliqués from Marjorie Busby’s blog that initially started the creation of this quilt. We just love the fresh colors and mix of brights and pastels here. Thanks for sharing your work with us, Linda and congrats on the award!
