A New Quilt Beginning . . .

1.10.2012

Planning a new quilt is almost the most fun part of the process! I am making a quilt for my best friend, Emily, who is obsessed with navy blue. Obsessed.

So I went in search of a line of fabric which was heavy on the navy blue. And I found it. Then after a very frustrating stretch of time with the EQ5 Program (dude, it's so ridiculously UN-intuitive) I came up with this plan...which may still shift just a bit when piecing time comes.

That outer fabric is navy with white dots, not solid navy as it looks, but will change if I can find white with navy dots to buy on the cheap. 
 
Fabric is from the Modern Meadow line by Joel Dewberry.
Quilt pattern is my own.

This is so pretty! I don't do quilting, but I bet it's so much easier to plan out when you can use a computer to do it. I can't wait to see the final quilt come together!

The quilt is darling - I've always liked navy with greens or golds.

You are right - EQ5 can be an unintuitive pain, which is why I didn't reinstall it after my hard drive crashed almost two years ago (and I can't find my registration key, ahem). Though it is nice to have those yardage calculations.

Have fun with the quilting!
