Today I’m pleased to introduce Creative Spark, a new feature from Quiltmaker and The Electric Quilt Company. We’re so excited about this new idea—and to celebrate, we’re giving away one copy of EQ7 quilt design software courtesy of The Electric Quilt Company.
You’ll see Creative Spark in print and online for each regular issue of Quiltmaker. It’s a portfolio of ideas you can use to take a quilt project in a new, different or alternative direction. In the current (March/April) issue you’ll find Creative Spark on page 50 and online here.
If you use Electric Quilt’s quilt design software, Creative Spark’s quick tutorial will introduce you to expanded options for recoloring your quilts—EQ tools you might not find on your own. I’m probably an advanced beginner when it comes to EQ, but I learned so much from this issue’s Creative Spark. I’m excited to start using the coloring tools I discovered!
If you don’t use EQ, you can still appreciate the recolored diagrams and take inspiration from all the possibilities. Can you believe the two images above are of the same quilt design? Only the value and color placement have changed. That’s what we’re talking about.
Since we’re giving away one copy of EQ7, maybe you’ll be visualizing all the possibilities for your own quilts very soon.
For your chance to win, please leave a comment and tell us why you’d be excited to win a copy of EQ7. Comments will be accepted through midnight Monday, March 26. And please watch for Creative Spark in each issue of Quiltmaker! The winner is Sharon Finkenbine, comment #619. Congratulations, Sharon!!!
