Designing quilts has become a bit of an addiction. I really enjoy the ability to take blocks and play with them before cutting any fabric. I use EQ7 software to create my designs for the mystery quilts, and some of the other quilts and table runners I have shared. Recently, I was playing with it, and I think I actually have next year’s mystery quilt close to completion! I am liking this new design a lot! Plus there are a couple more things in process that I will be sharing soon. Remember the Christmas Quilt Along?
That design turned into this table runner.
The Maple Star Table Topper for Moda was designed in EQ7 too. Click on the link on the sidebar for a free pattern.
Each month this year, the EQ7 folks are sponsoring giveaways and contests to celebrate their 25th anniversary. If you want a chance to win an EQ7 software package, click on EQ7 25th Anniversary to see how you can win an EQ7, and other great prizes. Just so you know, this is not a sponsored post, I am not receiving anything from EQ7 for telling you how to win.
If you are a quilter, you are a designer too, even if you don’t use software. When you use a published pattern, you still are a designer, as you choose the colors and prints to use. You make your project your own. Same pattern, but very different interpretations. If you love the first Scrap Dance, the pattern is for sale in my Craftsy store. Just click on the icon on the sidebar.
How do you design your quilts?
