WELCOME beautiful fall weather!! This brisk morning air is telling me that I’ll soon need a warm quilt to burrow under for evening IPad surfing. I’ve made several baby and mini quilts this summer, but not one nap size quilt! That will change soon as I finally finished my Jacks quilt before the temps dropped.
This is the first quilt that I designed using the EQ7 quilt design software. It’s a fairly complex program, and I only know the basics so far, but I’m having lots of fun figuring out all the bells and whistles. Below is the quilt design printout that I named from one of my favorite childhood games, Jacks.
I appliquéd the fusible web balls cutout to an 8″ background square: (here is a good appliqué tutorial that you can apply to this project)
I really enjoy machine appliqué and once I got my rhythm going, these circles were a breeze.
So that’s it for this post!
Thanks for stopping by and happy, happy sewing!!
