My friendship group came over today. We had a wonderful time, as always. We put the quilt that we made on the frame, and they watched while I started the quilting.
I've put the blocks together for the flying geese table runner. I'm now scratching my head and wondering what to do next? How do pattern designers do it? I feel like I'm putting together a puzzle without knowing what the picture is supposed to be.
That leads me to thinking about purchasing EQ6. I could play with designs and colors without ever having to make blocks or move things around on my design wall. But, to what end? I don't know that I have aspirations to ever make patterns or teach classes of my original designs. I wonder if it's worth the investment to make quilts just for me.
If you use EQ6 would you leave me a comment as to how much you use it and like it? Thanks
I have gotten the blocks made and put together for the Bali Sea Star quilt. I made it smaller than the directions in the book. The book has a pretty piano key border. I'm not going to be doing that I don't really have the time for a pieced border. Shhh. . . I'm making lap quilts for my spinning friends.
