I used EQ7 to design the layout and give me the fabric requirements. It also gave me the templates for the set-in triangles which was terrific. I think I can honestly say that I love EQ7!
    Thank you for the reply! I haven't heard of EQ7 but I'm going to check it out right now!! I've only been quilting for a year, so much is still new to me. I've seen those block a day calendars and considered putting it on my Christmas list.
    Thanks again, and congrats on a beautiful quilt.

    The quilt is beautiful. It is a "happy" quilt and even the quilt inspector gives it a "thumbs up".

    Wow that is beautiful. Large quilts are a lot of work. I am doing my very first one also, but it isnt as pretty as yours. Hope your bother does well with his chemo. You are a wonderful sister to do that for him. I'm sure he will charish it for years to come
