I have an older version of EQ – it’s EQ5 and I think EQ is now up to 7?? I don’t think I can even upgrade to 7 at this point…. maybe I ought to check it out…..
Do you have a Christmas quilt? I’m talking one that you wrap up in during the holidays and let the warmth of the season comfort you. Is it a quilt that simply screams CHRISTMAS? I have a Christmas quilt, but it’s subtle. It was made from swap blocks where we all had to use the Hollywood & Vines line from 3 Sisters (moda). So, I’ve been thinking I want to make a screaming Christmas quilt… Several years ago, my sister hit JoAnn fabrics after Christmas and bought a bunch of Christmas fabrics and sent them to me (sis doesn’t sew). My plans were/are to make Christmas stockings for charities, but there is one fabric that is red with white lettering – the wording is “bah humbug” – not very fitting for a charitable cause, but sort of fits me during the holidays … I’m planning to embroider some fun type Christmas designs and using this “humbug” fabric. I was thinking of a ribbon star block, but then I got to playing in EQ and came up with this:
the white squares indicate where I would insert Christmas embroidery. I wanted the tan/gold to help tone down the brightness of the red and green. Still not sure what quilt block design I’ll use – figure I still have a couple of months to get it done……
Need to get busy (translated “get off the computer”) as today is the hubbie’s birthday and we have friends coming over for a BBQ this evening. I have the veggies ready for the grill. The cake is made. The watermelon cut up. I will cube up pork and chicken for skewers and get them into a marinade and will make some bread this afternoon…..
Hope everyone has a great day..
