It’s been a great week. After thinking about it for the past few years, I finally decided to buy Electric Quilt 7. It was delivered this week. The first night I installed the program, I ended up playing for 3 hours!! It was fun, though. Here is my first attempt to design a quilt.
I started with this simple block.
I love making a disappearing 9 patch, so I decided to cut this block vertically and horizontally down the middle. I flipped and turned the blocks around and made this complicated looking (but very easy) quilt.
Flip a few more blocks around, and I got this:
Amazing!! All from the same block.
Change the colors and layout with a few clicks of the mouse:
This is going to be fun! It was a good thing this program came on Tuesday, because I lost my internet connection due to storms for the next 3 days. I’ve been trying to catch up today with my blog reading. Talk about internet withdrawal…
On Friday, I went with my friend to Shipshewana for the shop hop and quilt shows. I will blog later about the great day we had along with pictures of some amazing quilts as soon as I can get them unloaded from my camera. I was so inspired, as I often am when I go to quilt shows, that I spent Saturday and Sunday sewing my New York Beauty quilt. I have the 4 borders all cut and ready to sew, and then I am finished with the top!! I will take a picture to share once the borders are on.
Take care, and have a great week!
