It hasn't been straight forward designing today.. Normally, I just draw the quilt or block and make it… but…

I thought I would use EQ7 to design the quilt and I had a great a range of fabrics that I purchased last year that seemed to fit the genre.
I have a PC laptop that has EQ7 installed and I keep it in the house in the upstairs room to work on in the evenings so it means going in and out of the studio.
I couldn't find the exact fabrics in "stash" in EQ7, so I collected images from the fabric companies and installed them on the lap top in EQ7.
I have a few Kaffe fabrics but most of them are Terri Mangat designed fabric.
Strange, I know but they work.
This quilt is designed for three classes, one I'll be teaching next month, the other to be taught on a cruise in late January and finally I will be part of our Charity Event.
Believe it or not it can be done completely by hand.
On the other hand for the beginners in Dubai, they can use a machine and also do some by hand when I leave.
The outside block are some I designed in 2008.
The strange house in the center will be a little different… but I'm sure it will work.
