EQ8 - Discover New Designs Quickly

Hello!  I'm back today with another quick tip for EQ8 users.  Using EQ8 has allowed me to design quilts that I probably otherwise wouldn't have.  I have sometimes "accidentally" discovered new designs just by playing around in EQ8.  Keep reading to find out where you might have seen the result of this and not even realized it!

Friday Fabric Refresh - Jelly Patch

Hello and happy Friday!  National Sew a Jelly Roll Day is tomorrow!  Hopefully you have your pattern and your jelly roll picked out and ready to go so you can jump right into sewing in the morning.  Maybe you are going to make a Jelly Patch quilt but you are still undecided on fabric.  I'm here to help!

EQ8 - Only Edit Images Once

Last month, I posted about editing fabric swatches in EQ8.  If you missed that post, you can find it here.  You might be thinking that's great and all, but those edited fabrics are only in whatever project I was working on.  Do I have to edit them again if I want to use those same fabrics in another project?  

Luckily, the answer is no!  Today I am going to give you a quick tip on how to get edited fabric swatches from one project into another.  Let's get started!

Friday Fabric Refresh - Sugar Twist

Happy Friday!  Earlier this week, I shared the pillow I made using the block from my Sugar Twist quilt that is in the Best of Moda Bake Shop book.  I decided that would make this week the perfect opportunity to feature Sugar Twist for Friday Fabric Refresh!


The original quilt from the book is shown above and features Sugarcreek by Corey Yoder.  Corey always has gorgeous fabric, but of course it's always fun to see how quilts look in other fabrics!
