This is the project that enabled me to learn how to use Electric Quilt. After hatching a plot to surprise our friend Pat with a photo quilt, my friend Robin and I each took some photos and made blocks without any plan at all except to use fabrics from the same line. I taught myself to draft the blocks we had made and learned to use custom set to fit all the blocks together. It was a wonderful challenge because I had real world blocks right in front of me to compare. When the quilt was finished, we entered it into a NCQS show. Our friend burst into tears right in the show when she saw her family photos in fabric in a special surprise. This little quilt will always symbolize our friendship and EQ made it possible to make the quilt easy and fun to finish.
