The next step...

Jill's quilt originally was just piecing, so the logically step was adding applique. We drew inspiration from our book All through the woods. Because this quilt had a real outdoors feel we added this little cabin in the woods scene. This became the center of the quilt. Note how the block is not laid out symmetrically.

When we design we use a program by Electric quilt, called EQ 6. We design our quilts in the program which allows us to change layout, color and dimension easily. As with the star block, we can figure out the the dimensions, and we can print applique templates as well. Go to Electric Quilt to take a look at the EQ program. You can also purchase our Town & Country CD Rom by EQ on our website!

Stay tuned for the big reveal!
