EQ part 2

Here's another one: Like the first, the fabrics aren't the actual ones, and the colors aren't exactly right, but it gives you an idea what the quilt will look like. The prints will be toiles from the Michael Miller "Kid Toile"line, with this one for the large print: Ooh, the color's a little off there, but the background is sage and the toile is chocolate and cream. The borders will be a sage/chocolate check, the background of the blocks a cream/chocolate open toile, and the points of the stars a brown marble and a sage/cream dot.

I bought that toile a while ago because I fell in love with it but couldn't figure out what to do with it. I saw a few designs that set me in this direction, and now it has a purpose and will work out quite well. I know you all do this too: buy a fabric because you HAVE to have it, but then it sits there on the shelf, mocking you, because it won't fit in any designs. Well, if you don't do it you're a better person than I.

I can see right now that EQ6 is going to be very dangerous. I can already think of ten times more quilts than I have time to sew, but now I can draw them, in color no less, and taunt myself with them.

I like that! I have an older version, and I have yet to explore it fully yet...
