Brooksea Intro

Brooksea 1 Sampler

We left home for a week recently, and the only time I turned on the computer I played in EQ6. I selected blocks from My Library, changed some of them and started playing.

Brooksea 2

Several project files later I started this one, using the same game plan.

I found that EQ6 was a great tool for designing quilts, but I missed the precision tools for drawing block designs which are in EQ7

Brooksea 3

I rather liked the design above, but there is room for quilting.

Brooksea 4

I had avoided playing with the quilting layer in EQ until last year when I discovered that I could save layered designs in my Layout Library. Since then I have started filling up all those blank spaces in my virtual designs with quilting lines.

A long way from the days when the final instruction on every quilt pattern was

“Quilt as desired.”

    Many thanks for sharing with us all.


    • Sandra,

      Thank you … I am looking forward to seeing what happens myself! I usually have quite a few designs added before I share any, but am jumping into the deep end with some new project files!

    I also like the color scheme. As I am sure I have mentioned before it is my youngest daughter’s favorite color. I used to hate seeing the words “Quilt as desired” but after seeing some of your designs and having spent a few years they are no longer quite a threatening.


    • Cindy,

      I think ‘Quilt as desired’ would have to be the least inspiring words in the world … but to some it would be a wonderful challenge.
