358 WHAT??

I found this great applique quilt pattern by Three Sister called, "Aviary" in my new Keepsake catalog. In the catalog it is $129.99 for the fabric kit that included the pattern. Well, being a quilter on a budget, I used Google and after some searching, TAA DAA, I found the pattern on Moda's website FREE!! Now I can go to my local fabric shop and choose my own color pallet.
This really is a neat pattern and will make a lovely quilt, despite the fact there are 358 leaves that need to be appliqued. LOL

Eq fabric down loads

While doing an Internet search I discovered that you can go to the fabric manufacture web sites and down load the current lines of fabric. Save them as a zip file, do some tweaking, and import them into your EQ program. TA DA new fabrics to play with your library. LOL

This is all new to me and I LOVE IT!!! My eq was a gift from a very dear friend and I has kept me out of trouble. Or maybe it has gotten me into more trouble lol With all these quilts that I have been designing I need some fabric. LOL

Although, EQ has also kept me busy while I have had to rest my leg as much as possible.

My surgery is in 6 days and I have been advised to limit my mobility due to the swelling. The less swollen from fluid the easier it will be for the surgeon. SO, I am chilling with my feet up and playing with EQ LOL when this is all over I see a road trip to Lancaster in my future.
Hugs for now
