On the Wall Today

Here are a few more blocks from my pink quilt.  I have about 100 of the 8" blocks done.  So I still have many, many more to go.  But I love the way the colors look. 
I also have several more rows of my red/white/blue done.  So I am about half way through getting that top sewn together.  I am using the pinks in between the r/w/b to keep both of the tops in progress.

And I got EQ7.  I have been wanting it for months.  Mom will tell you I look at it all the time.  Well now I actually get to look at it on my computer.  In order to get free shipping I needed to spend a few more dollars so I bought five yards of material and they threw in a fat quarter as a "free" gift.
The program is loaded on my computer but I have not spent the time to figure anything out yet.  I am reading through the book and will start watching the videos when I can drag myself away from the sewing machine.  The two bottom fabrics have already found their way into the pink quilt.  Those little pictures on the site aren't really large enough for me to tell the colors so I got what I ordered whether it was really what I was anticipating or not.

Have a wonderful day.

Love your pinks! I was in a 'captivated by orange' mood, but it's morphing into pinks. I love the rainbow. Haha! You will *love* EQ7! I got it for my birthday last year and have really enjoyed playing around in it. I hope you have a blast! Happy Monday! :)

I bought EQ but haven't taken the time to learn how to use it. I am so bad with new things...

What a great collection of pink. Variety is a great way to not be bored with working on a monochromatic quilt. Have fun with the EQ, I'm sure it will be user friendly.

EQ is really lots of fun but it can consume a lot of your time, too.

Lots of great shades in your pink quilt, very fun to look at.

I love the quilt. I have several friends who have recently had or are about to have babies and I was running out of ideas. This layout would work very well for one of them.
