We just HAD to share this adorable quilt made with EQ printable fabrics and the very nice comments that came with it. Beautiful job, Jennifer. This quilt is such a treasure. “Hi, I used your premium cotton lawn fabric in a memory quilt that I made as a gift for my sister’s baby shower. I put pictures of her, her husband, and their two daughters in it, along with blocks of bright but girly (all three children are girls) fabrics. I’d never sewn anything before, and had just recently learned how to use my new sewing machine. I was able to print all of the pictures I wanted without a single hitch! It didn’t jam in my printer even once. The pictures came out looking as sharp as they do when I print them on paper. I printed them all in black and white, which made them stand out nicely
Leslie Hagood wrote us about a quilt she recently designed in EQ5. The idea for the quilt was inspired by the Matterhorn Quilt from the book, “Quilts In America”. It’s so interesting to see them both side by side. What a labor intensive quilt to make! Such patience and diligence is involved. Leslie has plans to make the quilt someday soon so we’ll share it with you if we get the chance to see it! Thanks Leslie!
If anyone has fabric of the month suggestions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. When we don’t hear what you want, we go with employee picks like purple for Sara Woodward, Erin McMorris fabrics for Penny McMorris, or Andrea’s infamous “Random Farm Animals” episode when she really couldn’t think of what to put on the website. The fabrics of the month you’d get in 6 months of downloads are less than 10% of the fabrics you’d receive from just one edition of Stash. We’re scanning away here at EQ for the next edition. Look for our twentieth edition of Stash coming in May/June. Don’t forget to download the new “Black & White & Red” Allover group we just put up on the website.
For those of you doing the online EQ5/EQ6 lessons for Kaleidoscope Collection, the next lesson is up and ready! This month we’re drawing alternate blocks. I hope you have fun! -Andrea p.s. I bought my border fabric and batting this weekend for the “mystery side sewing project.” I can’t wait to see/read your reactions once the mystery is revealed. I hope a lot of you have chosen to sew along.
Carmi Cimicata emailed us her latest EQ Printable creation… how cool is this necklace!? “I have had the idea for this necklace rumbling about my head for weeks and decided it was time to just make one. Ever since I saw a fabric bracelet in Sherri Habb’s book I knew that sooner or later I would have something made from fibers too.” She printed photos on EQ Fabric and then she sewed them to a dozen tiny pockets stuffed with batting. The final product is so eclectic and cool. Visit her website to read about how she made this necklace in more detail. Thank you for sharing, Carmi!
Susan Wood made her own version of the Congregation of Poppies Quilt and shared it with us. She has been following the Kaleidoscope Collectors lesson of the month and finished this quilt really fast! We are so impressed. You did a beautiful job, Susan! Thank you for sharing. See more of Susan’s projects on her website.
