My Design

I've been getting lessons on EQ7 from Dee. Thanks for the tutorials, Dee!

Plus I've been playing around myself trying different stuff out on my own.

Cheri and I started talking about nine patch blocks and designing two block quilts, which was the inspiration to try my hand at designing.

This is the first one I came up with. Initially it colorized as a two color quilt in red and white.

Last night I was working with Mary and we started playing with fabrics. I was trying to come up with enough fabrics for a Glads quilt.

It wasn't happening, so Mary suggested that I get the fabrics that were working.

Of course, I have to do whatever the Glad ladies tell me to do.

I played around with the scanner today and scanned in all the fabrics I bought and recolorized the layout.

I'm super excited to work on a design that is all my own and to be working with such great fabrics. Now I just need to come up with a name.

I'm thinking this might be the start to a whole new chapter of my quilting career.
