Lately, I've been spending an awful lot of time with virtual quilts rather than real ones. Although I did not start making quilts (real or virtual) until just a few years ago, I have collected quilting magazines for a long, long time. The collection was very haphazard at first - a cover would catch my eye, or MIL would recommend something. Just in the last year or so have I subscribed to a couple of quilt related magazines.
Well, now that there are 2 or 3 magazines coming every month, I am rapidly running out of shelf space! Time to either prune books & magazines or get new shelves! Since Sarge was less than enthusiastic about new shelving (you have no idea!), I have been going through the older magazines a little at a time, culling and tossing. And having a ball getting reacquainted with all that eye candy!
And then I came upon this magazine:
This magazine is a keeper! And I decided right away that I need to get those blocks into Electric Quilt! It hasn't always been easy, but I've learned a lot and I think I can move around in EQ7 pretty well now.
What's that? Of course I'll show you some of them!!!
This is just a sampling of the gorgeous blocks in this magazine - and now in my EQ7! So, now that I have the blocks drafted, I am playing with quilt layouts. OMG! That is so much fun! And soooo easy to lose track of time. LOL! If you don't hear from me in awhile, you'll know what I'm doing. But, I plan to share some of my experiments with you, so stay tuned.
