It took me a bit to get the size right – at first the six 4-patch blocks were drafted at 12in, but when the top was done I decided it was way too big. Took it all apart and cut the 4-patches down to 8in and love the result.
How to export an image of your virtual quilt from EQ
With your quilt displayed on the Quilt Worktable:
Click FILE > Export Image. The Export Image dialog displays.
In this dialog you’ll select the folder location for saving the file, give the file a name. You should name your photo file using this sequence: First letter of your first name, your full last name, underscore, EQQuilt. For example Jane Doe would name her quilt, “JDoe_EQQuilt”.
Click the down-pointing arrow for file type selections. Files can be saved jpeg.
The next dialog lets you specify the size of the image and other options depending on the file type that has been selected. You should choose 150 dpi and a width of 8”.
When taking a photo of your finished quilt, you should follow these guidelines or we may not be able to display your quilt in the gallery.
The quilt must be hanging vertically straight.
Take the photo straight on (the quilt should not be on an angle).
The image file should be larger than 600 pixels. If you send us the original photo without any editing, that file should suffice.
Do not crop out the background.
Do not cut off the borders or binding in the picture.
You should name your photo file using this sequence: First letter of your first name, your full last name, underscore, FinishedQuilt. For example Jane Doe would name her quilt, “JDoe_FinishedQuilt”.

I choose Annabelle’s Quilt as my favorite. There’s a simplicity and balance to this quilt. In the fabrics shown it has a luminescence and is reminiscent of stained glass. It is also easy enough for beginners to have a very positive experience – yet offer more experienced quilters a challenge as they choose fabrics to create a completely different “feel.”
I choose Annabelle’s Quilt as my favorite one much for the same reasons Ellen said, my guild does a lot of community quilts and I like doing the ones that make me smile!
Love the simplicity of this quilt! I do a lot of charity quilts and this one would be great for that purpose. I’d do it in patriotic or guy colors for the men, florals and blenders for the ladies and brights for the kids – all from my ever-growing pile of leftovers.
