    Circles - A quilt of many firsts!

    This quilt was my first design using EQ7, inspired by the blog The Quilting Edge (LOVE her), my first attempt at full circles and my first attempt at QAYG AND REVERSIBLE binding!!!! Oh and it is my first commissioned work! I said there were many firsts!

    Here it is:

                  Oh my goodness, what a rich and luscious quilt. I'm quite partial to monotone designs and yours is the nicest I've seen.

                      It's a computer program for designing quilts. There is a learning curve to using it and it is quite pricey.

                        Debbie, I LOVED it! There is little wiggle room in terms of seams needing to be exact (and sometimes more or less than 1/4 inch depending on how they came together when doing the sashing) and it was slow going this time around but I think next time it will be much quicker. I mostly followed the tutorials provided on Mari's web site "The Quilting Edge" - here is a link to the first of 6 The Quilting Edge: Tutorial/QAYG # 1/Making the Blocks.

                        I will definitely be doing this again - quilting is so much easier when working with the blocks instead of the entire quilt! The other thing I learned both by reading almost everything Mari has written on her blog is that the quilting possibilities using a walking foot are ENDLESS. This quilt was quilted entirely with my walking foot. You can even do spirals! She has a tutorial on that as well at The Quilting Edge.

                        I am meeting her tomorrow to present her with her quilt. She is excited and I hope she loves it as much as I do!! I'll let you know

                            Renate, as Karen said it is a computer program and it is a little pricey and there is definitely a learning curve but if you are a little computer savvy it isn't horrible. The program has fabric libraries and the ability to scan your own fabric into the program so you can see what your finished quilt will look like before you even do one stitch or cut. There is also the ability to design your own blocks. This is a feature I love. Once you have designed the blocks, you can put them into a quilt and flip and rotate them to design to your hearts content. Being new to this, I have found it very helpful in figuring out colors for my quilts.

                            There are other programs out there that do this and there have been several posts on different programs. I wish I had read all of them before I bought as I may have chosen a different program. That being said I have been able to work with it and am overall happy with the purchase.
