Don’t forget, we are having a contest with the chance to win a $100 EQ gift certificate! Read all the details here. Also, if you came to our Festival booth with your EQ wearable — make sure you send us a photo of your project for the chance to win the $100 gift certificate!
Of course you can use EQ7 to make jack o’ lanterns! Print out patterns and use them as stencils to either cut out or paint. Here are a few (of many) blocks in EQ7 that would work well. (And, here is some info on drawing your own silhouettes in EQ7.) But, traditional blocks look great too! If this inspires you to make something, let us know! Email photos to Heidi@electricquilt.com.
For those who may not know, Club EQ is a monthly club run by Barb Vlack. Every month Barb makes up a new challenge. If you submit a EQ project (no sewing required) then you get ALL the projects from everyone that participated that month. September’s challenge is Words on your quilt! You can check out the entries so far this month. We thought we had to share Judith Best’s entry with you. So cute! And, I think, true!
A few years ago fiction author, Lynn Thompson, wrote The Guild in the Granary. The main character, Caroline Clarkson, has a daughter named Jamie who works at The Electric Quilt! Now Lynn has written a new sequel, Timeless Star. Jamie is still working at Electric Quilt. In the series Caroline Clarkson leaves the world of bank security for what she assumes will be a tamer world of quilt fabric retailing. (Spoiler Alert: It’s not!) The books are full of quilting symposiums, quilt shop owners, stars of quilting shows…and of course quilters! If you read the books let us know what you think!
