EQ Files: Liftoff

I’m a huge fan of Electric Quilt (I think I’ve typed that phrase a few dozen times in this blog already). You know I upgraded to EQ8 literally the first day it became available. I’ve made exponentially more virtual quilts than real quilts, and I thought it might be nice to share some of those virtual quilts here.  I’ll post images of the virtual quilt, and if it’s actually turned into a quilts I’ll share a photo of that, too (most will be made by others because I’m spending too much time on EQ to actually sew). I’ll also share an EQ project file that you can download. Fair warning – if you don’t have EQ you won’t be able to use these files. I’ll be sharing mostly EQ8 files, so if you have an older version you may want to upgrade. It’s worth it, I promise!

Once in a great while, I might write up instructions for a quilt. If I do that, I may share the instructions here for free. If it’s a particularly complex pattern, I might spend more time writing it up and turn it into a pattern for sale. Don’t hold your breath, though.

As stated many times before, I receive no compensation from Electric Quilt for any of this – I just really love the product. I am (at least I think I still am) an EQ Artist on their Do You EQ website.

You can find all of the EQ Files posts by searching for EQ Files, or just click here.

So, it seems appropriate to begin with my Liftoff quilt. This is made from 6″ finished Birds in the Air blocks. You can read its story here. Here’s the finished quilt:
