Playing with Quilt designs

Because I often play with designs in EQ or Touch Draw long before I either make the quilt or write up instructions, I thought I’d post a page with them just for inspiration. They may eventually end up as *real* quilts with instructions or they may not.

  1. I just found your site I really like many of th designs and have on my bucket list
    I deffinitly will br doing elephant quilt as soon as t find picture to appliqué

  2. I love the elephant quilt also. I make a lot of charity quilts using embroidery designs and never thought of putting them around as a border. If you ever get the instructions written, I would love to have it. I have used quilts on your site a lot but any using embroidery designs would be fantastic.

  3. My girl friend gave me this site to check out and I did enjoy seeing all your Patterns. I will give some of them a try. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  4. I have EQ 7 also, but am still at the video/practice/confusion stage. Did you ever make instructions for the Elephant Quilt??? I’d love to have that file if you still have it. I’m thinking it would be great for my charity quilts.

  5. I love the elephant quilt the mostest!!!. Did you get he elephant from EQ7 or use one of your own. I would love to have a copy of pattern if you did not mind. Thanks.


  6. I have EQ7 too! Love it. And it helps me pass the time when I am too sore for sewing!
