Here is one of my latest projects that I'm excited about. It's the first quilt that I drew up in EQ6 (Electric Quilt Software) and took all the way to completion! I have designed more quilts in EQ than I will ever be able (or want) to actually create. It's nice to play around with fabrics and colors and know that I don't have to physically create that particular quilt if I don't want to.
This quilt, that I've called 'Pipeline,' was for a doll quilt swap for the new quilt guild that my friend Jill and I have joined (AND LOVE!), Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild (HOLLLLLAAAA, Jill!). It's a wonderful group of girls - we have similar loves of fabric lines and designers and share lots of fun and laughter. We have a monthly "swap" where we agree on a project, are given parameters and bring back our project the following month. For this quilt the only guideline was to make a bound quilt that measured no larger than 18" x 24". I think mine fell right at that measurement, but forgot to measure. At least I got pictures :)

I received a beautiful aqua, red and white quilt made by our guild founder, Heather. I will post a picture of it in the coming days when I can get a nice sunny, outdoor picture. It's very worthy of a nice day to be photographed :) Thanks Heather - I [heart] it!
Can't wait for next month's swap: a set of 4 drink coasters!
