Every quilt that I make starts with a plan using my very favorite software, EQ7. From there, I make a plan using Publisher or Word. It takes time but in the long run, saves me from making too many errors in cutting, assembly, etc. Plus it helps me to remember exactly what I did in case I ever want to make another like it. Often I will scan all of the fabrics into EQ so I can see exactly what the quilt will look like. But sometimes an approximate color match is close enough.
I will share with you my plan for the baby quilt top that I finished a couple days ago, the Hole in the Barn Door quilt HERE. I’d love to hear if you make one of these quick quilts!
