Friday Fabric Refresh - Blue Hues

Hello!  Any Friday is a great day, but today is extra exciting for me.  The October issue of American Patchwork and Quilting hits newsstands today and my Blue Hues quilt is included!  The magazine version is shown below, and of course I had to feature this quilt for this week's edition of Friday Fabric Refresh!

Friday Fabric Refresh - Special Requests

Happy Friday!  For today's Friday Fabric Refresh, I am featuring some requests that were made on previous Refresh posts. 

A few fabric lines were mentioned in the comments when I posted the patriotic version of Hallowed Blooms on Instagram a couple months ago.  If you missed it, you can see that here.

EQ8 - Not Just for Designers!

Hello!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I have been mentioning EQ8 a lot lately.  Electric Quilt 8 is the software that I use to design my quilt patterns.  I'm teaming up with the Electric Quilt Company over the next couple of months to bring you tips for using the software and some projects made in EQ8.  I'm even bringing you savings if you want to get your own copy of this program (more on that in a bit!). 

You might be thinking that you don't need EQ8.  You quilt as a hobby.  You own more patterns written by others than you'll ever have time to make.  You have no desire to design your own.  Well, I'm here to show you that EQ8 is not just for designers!
