Eva's Quilt

This is the quilt I'm working on the days that I'm not working on Evelyn's.  This quilt is in the design process only - all on paper.  I did the borders and the layout on EQ6  but I haven't worked with the program enough to feel comfortable making my own templates on it when they don't have exactly what I want.  Maybe I need personal classes on the program.  So I use bowls and plates and a pencil and ruler and go to work.


This is the inspiration quilt for this project.  It is from the book Whitework Quilting by Karen McTavish.
I get a lot out of her books, especially as I'm starting to do whole cloth quilts more.  This one has applique and trapunto which I also love to do.  My quilt will have some noticeable differences, but hopefully achieve the same kind of elegance.
