Adventures in Fabric Art

WIP Wednesday: Fall Fever

With the Coffee Quilt finished during the Labor Day Sew-In on Twitter (pictures on Friday!), I was good and cut up all my scraps from this and a few past projects, and put away the piles of fabric that had been accumulated.  Of course, my clean slate only lasted about twelve hours, but I felt virtuous.

One of my Getting it Done goals was some fall pieces for my shop.  When I pulled out my fall fabrics (I have a little!), I found a ton of scraps to cut up and a lot of strings.  I knew I wanted to use them for wall hangings, instead of the applique I did last year.

I designed this log cabin wall hanging on EQ7, to be made from rich fall prints with sky blue “chimneys”.  I also worked out the math for a very different one I want to do with string blocks.

Now excuse while I go dive into those gorgeous scraps!

Hope you’re playing with fabric today.

I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced.

  1. I look forward to seeing how your log cabins work out. I see quite few people using EQ7 – does it take much learning or did you find it pretty easy to navigate?

  2. Very nice! I have EQ7 and I kind of hate it. I’d like to think it is user error, but I dont think it is nearly robust enough and sometimes counter intuitive. I think that being a long time photoshop user, I have too high expectations. I’ve used it a few times, but I usually just use photoshop in the end. 🙂

    I’m glad to see someone has positive thoughts about it!

    • Interesting! But then again I’ve never used Photoshop. Can’t quite picture how that would translate. EQ has block and fabric libraries… , but I can import photos, too. Be interesting to hear what others use!
