The Richmond Quilt Guild, of which I am a member of the Friendship Circle Chapter, is holding their Annual Meeting on March 31st.  Each chapter was asked to design a quilt in the theme of Africa.  I volunteered to design the wallhanging for our chapter.  I designed the quilt (of course using EQ7!) around a cartoon of four monkeys.  I added the trees, geikos, lizards and ferns.  I hand painted the background with dyes and then added highlights with Shiva Paint Stiks.  The monkeys are trapunto and I printed their faces on my computer printer using EQ’s photo fabric sheets.  Some of the leaves were cut from black fusible interfacing to create a transparent look to them.  I quilted the wallhanging with my longarm machine and then highlighted some of the quilting with fabric paints.  It was a fun project.  I could not imagine trying to do something like this without EQ!  The quilt will be auctioned at the annual meeting
