I fired up the old EQ6 software this weekend, playing with options for some delicious fabric I just picked up:-)
This fabric has been on my mind since I first saw it in February. I wish I could have bought a bit more! I went with 1/3 yd cuts, added Kona and a couple from my stash, and I am ready. Well, almost ready,
Hopefully I will be able to get to this new project soon, but for now I just had to post a pretty photo with some of the fabrics from the new line from Moda, Hearty Good Wishes by Janet Clare.
I use EQ6 now and then when I want a better visual than my pencil provides. I sat down with a concept in mind and it came together pretty quickly. When I 'painted' the 'fabrics' in, I still wasn't getting the visual, so I scanned my fabric and imported the files into the EQ6 library. It was actually pretty affective. I had not done this before and it was easy, but a bit time consuming. It was neat to be able to paint my actual fabrics in my design. After all that with the design though, I decided the it is not exactly right for the fabric. I do LOVE the quilt I drew though, and I want to stitch it up with some solids one day. Great intentions of narrowing the list, but it is soo much easier to add projects than to actually check them off. ..
Also this week, a bit of a mystery to me, I landed this peculiar piece of 35" wide cotton.
Thank you for reading today!
I am linking up with Sunday Stash, located El Norte & hosted today by Work-in-Progress Girl.
I noticed some Hearty Whales also landed Down Under this week! Such great taste in the Molli Sparkles Studio!
