Electric Quilt 6
I am so excited! I just can't hide it!
I got the EQ6 program today. I still haven't loaded it on the the computer, but I will soon. I have never had a computer quilt design program so this will be pretty new stuff for me. Although I do use the Dear Jane program so I think there is a fair amount of similarities in how the programs work - as EQ makes the Dear Jane software. Now I can design all kinds of quilts - hundreds of beautiful quilts - and then I can just save the files and say -- "One day, when I have time I'm going to make that quilt" Actually I think it will be great for making small baby quilts and such - so I really am looking forward to spending hours away on the computer planning quilting projects.
I have been busy, working all week and then Jim got back from Portland on Friday. He was quite sore with his shoulder in Portland, he stumbled on the sidewalk one day and jarred his shoulder a bit. He is better this weekend.
Eric is busy designing me a web page with a little grid to put up my Dear Jane blocks. He has done a great job and once it is already to be viewed by the world I will put a link up for it. I started scanning the blocks instead of taking pictures of them and they look much better. I also found some fabric that is almost exactly like the WoW for the "Hugs and Kisses" quilt, it is the same white and the same leaf print but just a tiny bit small - but close enough that it is not really noticeable. So I will finish the last eight blocks in the new fabric and mix them in with the rest and it will be fine. So all in all -- a good few days. Now I must try to load this program and see how it goes.
