    During my lunch hour yesterday I skimmed through a couple quilting magazines and found this scrappy quilt. Iíve been trying to find a quilt design that would make use of all the greens I bought for my boyfriendís quilt. So during my breaks I recreated it in EQ5 on my laptop to see if it might be something Iíd make for him.

    (Original Block)

    (Full Quilt---obviously the example does not look scrappy one bit)

    Well, then I started playing around with the color. Then I started playing around with the block set up. And sooner or later I got had a completely different block that made an entirely different quilt.

    These are both awesome. It's neat how in the first one it looks different depending on if you are looking at the green or the tan-you eyes are seeing a different look. The same with the 2nd one....2 different looks there -look at the white then look at the black...from looking at the whole picture. Love them both!

    Makes me want to get off board and start learning EQ7. Just watched the videos last night. Glad to see what all you can do with it.

    I like both designs, but the second one better. Just a hint when looking at a full quilt in EQ. left click on the quilt and uncheck outline blocks and patches. it gives a better idea of the spaces for the same colors.

    I like the second one. That will be a ton of PP though, but worth it.
