    A while back I posted an EQ7 rendering of a quilt on my "to do" list. It's called Evening Star by Lori Lorentz. The pattern, which I purchased at a local quilt/craft fair, depicted the quilt in blues, purples, and white. I put it into EQ7 so I could "recolor" it with the color scheme I had in mind. The size of the completed quilt is 74x74 and I FMQ'd it on my home machine.
    This is the first quilt in which I used only batiks (including backing) and I loved working with them. Here is a picture of the finished quilt along with the EQ7 rendering. It's now on my bed keeping me warm at nite!

    Is EQ hard to use? I'm not too computer bright!

    No, I was able to find similar fabrics in the EQ library in the Hoffman Bali Handpaints 1 and/or 2. Three of the Batiks in my quilt were Hoffman (the rust, gold, and off-white). I can't remember what manufacturer made the purple.
    EQ7 is a great thing! :D
