Wednesday WOW–December 19

Is everyone ready for Christmas?  Yeah,  me neither!  But today I did some virtual cleaning up in my Electric Quilt files, and got sidetracked into a little play time.

magazine freebies

There was a discussion recently in one of the EQ groups about drafting magazine patterns into EQ.  Instead of saving the whole magazine, you can save space and get some practice using the software as well.  I have many, many free project sheets that I’ve collected over the years and this sounds like a good idea to me.  This first one is called Midnight Garden and it is from McCall’s Quick Quilts.

ocean

This one is from McCall’s Quilting (same company, different magazine) and is called Ocean.

jelly roll spin

This is Jelly Roll Spin.  The idea is to use all the fabrics in a jelly roll, but I think I like it with a limited color palette, too.

charming

On the other hand, this one, called Charming, uses 1-1/2 inch squares of a whole lot of fabrics!  Wouldn’t this be a fun way to clean out the stash?

I can see more EQ time in my future.  Something to keep warm and occupied if we get the snow that’s been forecast.  Not that I plan to go outside for long periods, anyway!  Hello?  Winter!

I for one would love to see you spending more time playing with EQ!
However you spend your time, have a great Christmas and happy new year.
