Tiptoe Through the Tulips

I played and played with EQ over the weekend. Hopefully I’ll get this out of my system soon and be back to playing more with fabric! But this design is one that I will make. How could I possibly resist all that curved piecing of Winding Ways and Drunkard’s Path blocks? This coloration of it I’m calling Tiptoe Through the Tulips. Some of you may remember Tiny Tim singing Tiptoe Through the Tulips. I was giggling the whole time I was working on this design thinking about that.

Playing with designs in EQ has quickly become addictive. Saturday night I had to have an MRI and, as I am claustrophobic, took a rather strong tranquilizer. So as the machine made its infernal racket, rather than feeling like the walls were closing in, I was dreaming up this design. As soon as we got home, I started playing with it in EQ.

I guess you could say I am now well and truly hooked on Electric Quilt. I love that I can try out my ideas and see how they’re going to look before I start printing shapes on my fabrics. It’s just another great tool to have available. What’s perfect about it for me is that I can design a quilt using Inklingo shapes and then play with colours.

Baxter was very intent on getting to the yogourt on the spoon. If we don’t hold the spoon close enough, he’ll reach out with a paw and hook it around the stem of the spoon to drag it closer.

  1. I’m glad you are figuring out EQ, mine is sitting here waiting for me to figure it out, just not enough time! Your quilt looks nice, better get to printing!
    MRI? I have had two and LOVED them, found them so relaxing, I could have fallen asleep in there! Glad you are feeling well!

    Baxter is so spoiled, is that a silver spoon? 🙂


  2. One of the joys of quilting is that it can help you escape in times of stress (or claustrophobia). Gomez has become quite the yogurt connoisseur and really enjoys honey flavored Greek yogurt:)
