EQ Printables Project Feature: Model Ships

Posted 08-22-2019 by | Posted in: From Our Users Just Because Look What I Did

You all know that quilting is our first love here at Electric Quilt. But when we saw how Shaun from San Jose, California is using our EQ Printables Inkjet Fabric Sheets, we couldn’t help but share his projects with you!

Having the option to design graphics on the sail is a huge plus. The other huge plus [of using EQ Printables] is the plastic backing which can keep the sails stiff, flat and smooth so I can add leech lines (the rope wraps around the entire sail). Once I’m done with all the things I need to do before rigging, I can remove the plastic backing without getting the sails
