Swoon Quilt


So with it being the second day of spring, my goal on my day off from work was to do laundry and to sew. Well I guess I did. I promptly woke up at the god awful hour of 7a.m. and made coffee. So much for getting home at 1 a.m. and sleeping in a bit, HA! Anyway I clearly had priorities to follow, coffee was the first thing as I do not function well at all without it. Then I did the mom thing and made sure the boys did their thing for school or work, put laundry in and then without even thinking of anything or anyone else I sat at my machine and started to work on the rest of this Swoon Quilt... I can honestly say with a straight face the quilt top is done!!!!!!! The one challenge I had with this quilt was the cutting. It took forever to cut all the pieces. I however have the OCD factor in me where I have to label absolutely everything. So with that said and done I finally got to sewing. This quilt top took me two months to do because I was having to take things apart and resew, then step away due to frustration... I clearly gave in and completed this... Let me know what you think...

Happy Birthday Craizee Corner

Hi quilters my friend Sharon at http://craizeecorner.blogspot.com has reason to celebrate. Her blog is one year old...  She sure has had an exciting yr... All of her creations are so beautiful and the talent, well what could I say about her talent that everyone else hasn't already said...She graciously asked me to come visit her blog and tell her what I like about EQ7 because she is celebrating EQ7 week. Well I have a copy of Quilt Design Wizard and love it, but there are limitations then I was very lucky to get the EQ7 program and just love it!!!  The fabric selection along with the colors alone can be overwhelming because there are so many possibilities to work with... Then you get into designing your patterns with the block library and all I have to say is  OH BOY!!! I have been playing alot with this program and I have created a few things that need some editing, I can't imagine if they add an update to this program, I may have to change careers...

I  would like to thank Sharon for inviting me to share her excitiment about the blog birthday and about celebrating EQ7 week... I hope you all have a good time seeing my creations and the creations on Sharon's blog...http://craizeecorner.blogspot.com
