Ct Piecemakers quilt show 2014 & Electric Quilt- EQ
I won a quite a few ribbons. I haven't had a first place ribbon in years. So it was pretty exciting to get two at one show. I also received a Judges Choice ribbon for my Book Cliffs & Blossoms quilt. I never won one of those before! I have a picture of me with the quilt below. I love this quilt and wish I could hang on to it, but I'm going to give it to one of my nieces who is graduating from college. My other niece will get the Blue Willow quilt. I hope to give each of them a copy of the Fons & Porter Love of Quilting issue that both quilts appeared in.
While at the show, I had the opportunity to meet many quilters. I would often ask them, Do you EQ? Meaning, do you use Electric Quilt design software to design your quilts? Many said they had the program but haven't utilized it to design a quilt. I asked them why do they think they avoid utilizing their investment? I received many different answers. I was wondering what they need to inspire them to use this wonderful design tool. So, if you own a copy of EQ tell me why you do or don't use it? If you have used it what do you like about it the most? I look forward to hearing from you.
