Club EQ Project for July 2013
Modern Quilts

Each EQ Club project is something I treat as a way to learn something new in the software. Before the challenge had even been known, I had decided that no matter what I was going to learn auto borders and piecing borders. This quilt has both. The outside border is an auto border, and the inside top and bottom blue sections are pieced to allow the closure of the blue rectangle in the quilt design.

I can say without any hesitation whatsoever, this is totally not my style of quilting or creating quilts. I would stick with all one color of quilting with this quilt, and add perhaps some diamond quilting throughout the quilt. However, I had a really difficult time learning thread coloring for quilting and when I tried an all over diamond effect, there was no way I was going to spend that amount of time coloring stencils. So.. I went with stitch in the ditch, fast, easy and now I can go on vacation. :)
