    Clown Block and Pinwheel Square Block in EQ7

    I hope I'm not going to start hearing "enough already" with my posting what I create using EQ7.

    One of the local quilt guilds asked me last night to design something for them to make their Christmas quilt and I told them I'd think about it and see if I could come up with something. I hope to try and create 3-4 designs and let them view them to see if it's something their ladies would want to make.

    I played around with EQ7 for about an hour and using the Clown Block and Pinwheel Block attached is what I came up with in a quilt. I used my reds, white fabrics I had on hand here. I scaned the fabrics and uploaded it into EQ7 fabric library.

    Of course if which ever they decide they can choose their own red and white fabrics.

    It took me a bit to manipulate the blocks to get this design and add the fabrics. Of 8 fabrics I have in reds and whites I found these two fitted the best for this.

    Ooohh! I like it. Is this just a picture of a quilt design or is it a real quilt. i am unfamiliar with what an EQ7 is and this
    looks like real material. I love it!

    It's the design I made using my own fabrics I have on hand. I designed it for a local quilt guild to use and of course they most likely will use there own color fabrics. EQ7 is Electric Quilt design program. I uploaded my fabrics into the program to design it. It has not yet been sewed.

    I love seeing EQ designs! I am glad though that I don't have it. I am computer challenged and wouldn't be able to operate it anyway. I think I'd spend all my time playing with quilt designs instead of quilting.

    I agree! I love to see what folks can do with EQ! I think that this would be a great holiday quilt, but I'm wondering if a 5 by 5 setting of the blocks would feel more balanced?

    Personally I'd rather design and let others quilt it. :-)

    Don't worry about us getting tired of eye candy. I prefer QuiltPro to EQ (have both) but whatever one uses, a good piece of design software saves time, fabric and reduces frustration.
