I was truly honored to be asked to join this blog hop Bea is sponsoring. Having been in her last EQ Blog Hop which was so much fun. I think this hop will be cool to help showcase how much I’ve learned in EQ since I was a beginner EQ user back in April when we did the last EQ Appliqued Animals Blog Hop.
See ya Soon,
Hi ya and Welcome,
Thank you so much for dropping by on your trip around the different blogs participating today.
This months Club EQ quilt challenge was Landscape Quilts. Talk about a swirling of ideas. I could have created hundreds of quilts literally, the ideas were so heavily flowing in my mind. It was pretty much anything goes, pieced or appliqued. I finally settled on creating the Sealife quilt you see here. I would have probably done a second quilt, but this one pretty much took up all of my time for the month and I barely got this in on time. Why? Simply because everything in this quilt was drawn or traced by me.
This quilt features over 50 drawn objects. The mermaid alone took over a day to trace. There were objects drawn for this quilt that I couldn’t even fit into it, and at the same time, because I hope to redraw this quilt at some point hopefully featuring a bit more land so I can add some palm trees, or perhaps a lighthouse. I am hoping to create part of the borders with a sky.
For me, the last day of the contest has arrived and I have gone thru the list of comments and been to random.org to let them pick the winner.
We now have a winner for the Quiltmaker 6 Quilting Designs CD from Electric Quilt.
And the winner is…
It’s been an amazing week full of fun, learning and great times at each of the different sites for Bea’s EQ Applique’D Animals Blog Hop. For me, being a new blog site, I’ve learned not only about EQ itself, but taking care of my blog and how to do things I was not aware of prior to people coming to visit me. I wish to take a moment and thank each of you who visited, especially those of you who left comments, compliments and the wanting to learn. I hope you will take the time, or purchase EQ and realize that your dreams can come true in quilting.
The above image gallery is a beautiful reminder of the sites I’ve learned from this week and a wonderful opportunity for you to continue to visit.
This is my last block for Bea’s EQ Applique’D Animal Blog Hop, but is definitely not my last block to ever be made in EQ. This has been such a wonderful and a truly great learning experience for me. I’ve learned from the other bloggers who have also participated in this hop, and my deepest appreciation for your kind comments about the blocks I’ve done has been just really wonderful.
