You can do all kinds of things with EQ, besides quilting. Here are some Easter eggs with silhouettes. You can learn how to draw silhouettes in EQ7 here. There are also many free printable on the internet. You can print any of these onto EQ Printable Fabric and make fun fabric Easter projects. Make a fabric bag that you can use year after year. Or a pillow, fabric mask, fabric place cards…even greeting cards can be made out of fabric! Or, you could use our EQ Peel and Stick, it’s fabric on one side and sticky like a sticker on the other. You can run it through your printer just like any of our EQ Printables! If this inspires you to make something, let us know! Email photos to Heidi@electricquilt.com. Happy crafting!
