Tackling my EQ6

A few years ago for mothers day I bought myself EQ6, My husband told me to buy something I wanted. I have been experimenting with it ever since.
This is what I came up with and except for one minor (and a little unpicking) problem it has turned out just like I planned it. The quilt top is finished ready for the frame, I will post a photo of it when it is all finished. But here is the plan.
This is the wecond quilt that I have made from scratch using EQ.

Out of my Comfort Zone

I have been making a cushion cover, and it is definitely out of my usual colour range, but I am happy with the outcome. Took me a while to decide which greens went with each other, but........ well here it is. The pattern is mine, except for the rose, which I sort of adapted to what I wanted.

Christmas Table Runner

I spent the last few days making a Christmas Table runner for my mother - in - law, this is the outcome. I sort of used a pattern out of Country threads magazine, but I altered it so much i don't think it is recognisable now. I made it out of all my small bits of christmas material, so now i don't think I have enough left to make another Christmas like project.
By the way the whole thing is made on the machine, except for my initials and date on the back. I even sewed the binding by machine with a fancy stitch.

I found a new free stitchery BOM. There is one called "Sweet Nostalgia" starting on 15th September. think I will definitely do this one, it looks cute in the sneak preview. It has taken me quite a while to want to do just stitchery, but I have had quite a bit of practice lately.


Some of the work I have been doing just lately.
