Adding Text on Your Quilt

Posted by Shirley Goodwin on 20 April 2017 | 0 Comments


Shirley's Christmas quilt made in EQ7

There are times we want to add text to our quilts and EQ7 can help us get an idea of where to put it and what to add. Here is an excerpt from my "EQ7 - the next step" online workshop:

"Now let us look at something quite different - adding text (words) to our quilts. We can do this with any kind of layout. I will create a small wall quilt that has appliqué and text. First, I will decide on a layout. I think a vertical strip layout will be best for this project, so I select this. I decide to have just 2 panels. The first is 15 x 20 inches; the second is 10 x 20 inches. Because it is nearly Christmas as I am writing this, I decide to have a seasonal theme.  Here is the end result - this class shows you how to achieve this or any other combination of appliqué and words that you choose”
