Project of the Day


I am almost finished with the border that I have made for Kathleen, who is one of the famous and talented Wackies. The attached picture is only what the quilt looked like before I got it. Oh, and it is a EQ6 picture. I have added my border to the outside of this one. It is so nice to just throw a quilt into a computer. I have saved so much time and fabric by trying different designs and colors on my virtual design wall. My seam ripper gets some cool-down time too. The border should be completely done tonight (early tomorrow morning) or tomorrow evening. All I have to do is drink a pot of coffee...after cutting the coping border, and sew. Unfortunately, when I finish this one I will not be able to share pictures until Kathleen has seen it, since she reads my blog every now and again. Or I could really mess with her and put one of my EQ6 pictures up showing a border with clown or leprechaun skipping around with candy and pots of gold. O.K. Everybody reading this, don't tell her. I'm gonna do it.

OHMYGOSH!! This is so so cute. I am just beginning to realize how much help EQ can be. I wish I live a little closer to you so you could help me!! You know old people NEED help. I won't tell Kathleen. I promise! LOL

Molly, consider me your on-call helper...anything you want to get you going on EQ6...just call me. I promise I don't work for the company. I was just forced to learn it since I don't have a design wall yet. Call me if you need ANYTHING!

How perfectly beautiful - I am awed. I had an old version of EQ that I never played with enough to use but I wish I had. It would have saved me lots of unsewing. I have a niece in Austin - a recent move/marriage and she loves it there. Blessings, marlene

Hey Monica, GREAT! I have EQ now but am still learning to use it. I'm just robbed of somethinig precious that I need to get EQ straight in my mind -- that is TIME.

Glad to see you back in the blogging world -- I've missed you.

Wow, this quilt (Kathleen's) looks so GREAT in EQ6. It looks good anyway but i mean the EQ6 picture is so SQUARE. Can't wait to see your border.
