My Iowa quilt guild, Scrap Happy Quilt Guild has recently had the reveal of our 2009 mystery quilt. Before I construct each of my quilts, I create them in Electric Quilt 6. I search for the fabrics I plan to use, draw the block pattern, create the layout and insert virtual fabrics into the blocks and borders. I know what my quilt will look like--before I make it. And I change many details until I get exactly the look I like. Above is the EQ6 drawing of the quilt as I expected it to be...and below is (the poorly edited photo of) the top I pieced.
Do you have any mysteries in your life?
