I’m in the middle of quilting my applecore baby quilt and it is coming along nicely. I decided to echo quilt in one direction which is great because I don’t have to mark it!
Hopefully, I’ll be done with the quilting in the next couple of weeks and onto the task of binding!
So I finally sat down to have a play with EQ7 and some Inklingo shapes. I received a newsletter from Accuquilt (part of my initial research into better template-makers before I found Inklingo) a while ago with this quilt featured:
I saw it and thought the design was interesting and probably Inklingo-able. So I opened up EQ7 to redraw the quilt (and change the colors to something that suited me better) and while calculating all the shapes, I discovered that this is a variation on the 9″ Storm at Sea!
And then there was this cute pattern in another newsletter from Fat Quarter Shop:
I halved the size to see if it could be completely Inklingo-able, but there are some shapes that aren’t for sale.
I recoloured it and I’m calling it Rainbow Crayons.
Then I went back to the Inklingo site for the Drunkard’s Path EQ file and played with the block. I call this Colour Tabs.
I needed a place to talk about all the sewing I try to do. I’m in the middle of a few projects, but at least the one above is complete! More on that to come!
