    This is what I came up with yesterday. I call it "The Castle Floor". The block is "Crossed Roads" from quilterscache. One of the fabrics I actually have, and I'm thinking seriously of getting the others and making this.

    Oooooo! I like! I have EQ6 and have only gotten through the first 2 lessons. How did you get the block from the quilters cache into EQ?

    Wow, that is cool. Where do you buy the EQ5 or EQ6 at?

    How did you get the pattern from quilters cache on your program.

    So can you scan your fabrics also to see what the quilt will look like?

    Wow, this sounds fun to have. How long have you had your programs?

    I got mine for Christmas. Hubby ordered it online using my American Quilters Society membership and got a really good deal on it. I haven't learned how yet, but you can scan your own fabric in so you can see how it will look in a quilt. You can also go to Electric Quilt site and down load fabric collections monthly free from certain companies.

    What I did was to draw it in the make a new block section. You can draw existing blocks, or even make up your own. The quilterscache had it with greens and browns, I think.

    Thanks! I will have to devote more time to learning all the ins and outs of EQ.

    I have had this about 8 months. My sister gave it to me. I have barely even looked at the book. I just figured a lot of the things out myself.

    Yes you can scan your own fabrics in or what I do is see a pretty fabric online and save the picture and import it. It is loads of fun. I really like being able to see what the quilt will look like before I even start cutting.

    Yes. It is wonderful. There are so many choices. When you save the picture, be SURE to make it bitmap. They will not go in any other way.

    Thanks! I will give it a try! I really need to work at getting proficient at EQ, it really is fun...at least as far as I have gotten with the lessons (#'s 1 & 2). :oops:

    Great quilt! I'd love to see it in fabric. I will be getting EQ6 in the next couple days and I CANNOT wait! I love to design my own patterns, and I always have a hard time with precision on paper. I am excited that it will give me fabric requirements and instructions too.

    Thanks for sharing!

    How pretty!! Nice colors!! Is it a wall hanging? I love my EQ6 and find right now I use it to make color discoveries rather than create patterns..but I've done both. I haven't scanned any of my own fabric yet.

    I am thinking that I will make 12 blocks and have it be 3 x 4. Each block (with the double sashings is 19 inches) so it will be about 57 x 76 finished.

    Your design looks great. I got EQ6 for Christmas as well but havn't spent a lot of time on it. I had my first of 3 to 5 classes on it Wednesday evening. I hope to spend some time playing around with it tomorrow during the Super Bowl
