This is the second time I have entered Amy's Creative Side Bloggers Quilt Festival.
I haved decided to submit the first quilt I designed in EQ7 back in June. It took me about 4 hours and I only had to contact technical support once. I had used a different quilt design software before, but decided to purchase EQ7. My quilt "Stars and Stripes Allover" is inspired by a quilt called Stars Galore by Sally Murray which is published in the Quilts on American Barns book by Eleanor Burns. This is also the first patriotic quilt I have made.
To piece this quilt I used three of the Quilt in A Day Flying Geese rulers. This was the first time I had used them. I enjoyed working with them and liked the outcome.
I really loved the fabric I selected for this quilt. I see another quilt using these fabrics in the future.
I had never made a ribbon border before. I found directions on the web and used those to complete the border.
Garfield posed really nice for this picture.
I have finished the quilt and it is at Jennifer McCann's being quilted. I was pressed for time and didn't get to take a final picture with the white and ribbon border attached.
I can't wait to see what the quilt looks like quilted. I have to decide if the binding will be the Red or Blue paisley fabric.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about this quilt and will visit my blog to check out my other quilt projects.
