I have decided to go through my eq8 (Electric Quilt 8) teaching books every morning. I am learning something new each lesson. I obviously only knew the bare minimum of the program, and I am shocked at how much I am learning. I’m still in chapter 1 of Drawing Blocks book. My next 2 books arrived last week 1-Designing Quilts and 2-Designing More Quilts. It might take me 6 months to go through these books, but I am determined to learn!
Here is what I learned today. Most I already new, it is the little tricks that are exciting me.
Originally, I was hiding the patch lines in a different step, this is so much faster and easier to do! Best purchase in a long time!!
Here is a little bit of information that you may not know about me. I wanted to be an architect. Life did not take me down that path. Instead, life took me down a road that allowed me to be a wife and mom to 5. Homeschooled all of our kids beginning to end (graduated). Quilting, well it came into my life when the kids were little. It, quilting, gradually became a part of my daily life as the kids got older. And well, the rest is history, LOL
During dinner the other day I was telling my family about the EQ8 lessons, my youngest son John, said, “Mom, you ought to take a CAD class.” I am thinking about it, we will see.
