Using my EQ7 Quilt Program
Do you remember back in May when I showed you my first Sunday Stash from Canadian National Fabric here? Well, those cute bears on the Theodore & Izzy line got stuck in my head.
So I drew up a bear and some bees on my graph paper. And then, once I had an idea of what I wanted to do, I sat down at the computer with my EQ7 quilt program to perfect that design. The more time I spend using the program, the more I learn. And therefore the more I enjoy using it!
What I love about using the EQ7 is that I can adjust the quilt and block sizes. And I can import fabric swatches into my program and see just how they will look using solids or prints.
Here is the design using solids…..
And here is the design using a few of the prints I purchased from Canadian National Fabric back in May. Plus what I may have purchased additionally while I was fooling around with this design…..
When exporting images to save them on your computer, you can also save them without the lines, giving you an even more realistic image. And helping you to see just how your design will look using the fabrics you chose.
This little quilt is currently sitting at 36″ x 40″. I will still have to work out a cutting plan and pattern before beginning. But it sure was fun spending a few hours being creative, working on a new quilt design, and getting to know my EQ7 quilt program a little better. Oh ya… And shopping for additional fabric from Canadian National Fabric!
