We saw Gyleen Fitzgerald at Quilt Market this month. She showed us her new, spectacularly-photographed book called “Quilts: Unfinished Stories with New Endings.” And guess what? All 10 quilts were drafted with EQ6! Here’s what Gyleen says: “How do I begin to describe this book? Let’s start with beautiful color photography of finished quilts in a garden setting. Oh, did I mention I started with “unfinished” vintage tops and blocks and added only new fabric from my stash to finish each one? Then as if that weren’t enough, Quilts features old black and white photographs of everyday people celebrating life. It gives you the feeling that you’re holding a scrapbook of memorabilia. And then there are the letter which could have been penned in the 1930s’ which reflect life and making quilts. Whew! That’s just the first section. In Quilts, I openly discuss how each quilt was designed and finished,

We recently had some EQ6 designed quilt entries to our Quilt Gallery that incorporated printable fabrics. We thought we’d share them with you here as well! The image to the left is the project in EQ and the image to the right is the completed quilt in fabric and printable fabric with photos. Make sure to check out the Quilt Gallery from time to time to see what other EQers are creating.

This year at Pittsburgh Market we had the pleasure of announcing the new Amy Butler Softwares and displaying Amy Butler projects in our booth! The display turned out just beautiful and cozy with all the colorful projects. Amy even signed her new program for visitors as they came to greet her. Just next to our booth was actual Amy Butler booth! What a treat to see her beautiful work. Thanks again to Amy and her crew for being such lovely neighbors! Check out some photos of our Amy Butler corner from Market.

… make apple pie! After Pittsburgh Market we found ourselves with a bin full of green apples left over from the Amy Butler Softwares booth display. We put them in the kitchen here at the office and we’ve all been grabbing an apple every now and then with lunch. Last night, we left the office and the bin of about 20 apples on counter. This morning we were all surprised to find that EQ Mouse (or in this case, Office Manager Lu) had turned the bin of apples into a delicious apple pie! Thanks Lu!
