My first quilt designed in EQ8 is a table runner based on the maple leaf quilt block. I designed the pattern longer than most table runners to accommodate tables that have had their table leaf inserted, possibly for the holidays. This is my own original design and I even wrote a pattern which I published on my website. It was easy! EQ8 is an easy to learn tool which reliably allows me to accomplish the goal of the software – designing quilts. Love it!
