The Progression of Heritage

Hello Everyone,
 
I'm making good progress on Heritage in addition to another project on my design wall which is hidden.....more on that later in the week.  How many of you have more than one project in the works?   I'm terrible about having multiple projects going.....but I have to say I'm never bored.
 
 
I'm sewing the blocks together as I go to get that task out of the way.  It seems to take a brief amount of time to sew as I go, than assemble the whole quilt together at the end of the process.  I feel this quilt is just making itself.  I find myself staring at it on the wall while visions of machine quilting dance in my head.
 
This quilt is going to look good on display during the Holidays in addition to year round.  You can see Macie's Journal fabrics HERE at Marcus Fabrics.  I was so happy when I opened up the box that Marcus Fabrics sent to me.  It was just like Christmas morning.
 
I started the pattern writing last night before Downton Abbey.  My world stops while I turn my full attention to my favorite show.  I'm going to miss it so much when the series ends. 
 
This design idea came into being after I downloaded the images into EQ7 software.  I sat and played with the software and this pattern came to life on my screen.  I don't know if I should tell you or not this quilt came together while I was watching and cheering through two football playoff games.  After the actual fabric arrived, I made a couple of substitutions, and this is the final rendition.
 
 
Since my favorite teams didn't make it to the big show, I think I'll set up my laptop in front of the TV and start playing with EQ7 during the Super Bowl this Sunday.  Who knows what I'll come up with next.
 
Soon,
Lynn

  5. I love your Country Charmer design but Heritage is even better (if that's possible lol). It is just awesome. So worthy of the name as it looks like an antique heirloom.

  14. Lynn, This is Anita Massey. While looking for something else entirely, I found a section in the EQ7 Book on adding blocks to the block library. I recalled you said you hadn't been able to do this with ones you created. What I found was on page 63 in the third section. Hope this helps.
