not sewing but having fun with EQ7

I was so inspired by Jamie's scrappy HST quilt that the minute I saw it, I knew I had to make one.   I love the way she boxes in the stars.   So I put it in EQ7 and just been having a blast with the different options.    Here's what I have so far, which one do you think is best?  I've played with different color options as well, but these are the fabrics I have so this is the color option I have.  One of these days, I'll have to stop playing around and just sew something

This is option 1, I just like the clean lines.
This is Option 2, different corner stars and different center. Hmmm, what is the center???  

Here's option 3, I think I can call the center a star on this one, Well maybe it's a stretch, but I do like it.  And I think I'm really liking the corner stars.

Option 4 is the same as Option 3, but with the blue forming more complete squares between the stars.  I like the clean lines, but the sides now look a bit cut off.

Option 5, The lines are quite as clean, but I don't think it looks cut off.

So, which option do you think is best?????

  Here's the fabrics.  I think there's enough variety to make it scrappy looking.

Don't forget to stop by Sarah's to see what everyone else has done during the week.  


  1. I really like them all, but I think #3 will showcase all your pretty fabrics.

  2. Gorgeous fabrics! I like the first one because of the simplicity, but any of them would be beautiful.

  3. I like all of them too, but I guess my favorites are #2 and #3. I think it's going to be a beautiful quilt no matter what!

  4. I'd love to get EQ7 someday - your designs are so cool, and it's a lot faster than drawing it out on paper!! Thanks for all the inspiration!! Whoop whoop!!

  5. EQ7 must be a lot of fun~! I like the 3rd design, It seems to look richer in color to me. But they all are really nice designs and I love purple and green with the blue.

  6. I think I like #3 too but I sure see clearly why you're having trouble deciding! Yikes!! Once you decide, you have my Whoop! Whoop! ha ha, just kidding.


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
