EQ Projects

I love to design my own quilt patterns, and I couldn’t do it without EQ!  I’m happy to share my project files for those of you using EQ7 or newer… sorry but there’s no ability to save to older versions.

If you make a quilt from my files, please credit me as the inspiration, and if possible, link back to me, it would be much appreciated!

For some reason, these files work differently on different browsers, so if you are unable to open a file you’ve downloaded, try a different browser.

Most of all enjoy!

Gradations Quilt: I designed this quilt for my step son and his wife.  He loves green and she loves blue, and I loved these fabrics 🙂  It’s very easy to piece!  The “Old Fashioned Charm” quilt by Moda was my inspiration for this design.

Both Northcott Fabrics and the American Quilt Society have featured my quilt on their Facebook pages, which was fun!

There are more pictures of it in my 2016 Gallery.

Land of the Free Quilt of Valor: One of the local quilters asked me to design a quilt around a panel she had.  There are four variations in this project file.

2015 Quilt of Valor: I’m getting ready to make this one.  Normally I don’t share my EQ project files until after I’ve completed the quilt myself, but Quilts of Valor are different… they should be shared freely in my opinion.  This one measures eight one inches square. I dislike making flying geese, so I’ve drawn them all as half square triangles side by side.  You can of course, opt for standard flying geese.


2014 Quilt of Valor:  I designed this quilt for my local monthly QoV meeting group. There are no “blocks”, the entire quilt is made of three inch patches and three inch half square triangles, laid out in rows, so even a beginner could make this! However when piecing it, I did so in (9) 24 inch “blocks” to simplify things. Both color variations are included.  It measures seventy six inches square. You can see my completed quilt in my 2015 Gallery.

All Boxed In: McCall’s Quilting posted a free pattern online recently, called “Peas in a Pod”.  I was drawn to it and designed this quilt around the block in it.  I downsized the blocks to be made from 2 1/2 inch strips and squares, added sashing, and an entirely different border.  It makes a wonderful baby quilt!  Detailed pictures can be found in my 2014 Quilting Gallery.

Scrappy X’s:  This is a mish mash of a couple quilts, one I saw on a friends blog who found the blocks on Pinterest, and the squares in the border were taken from a quilt called “Flower Boxes” by Heather Mulder Peterson that I previously made.  Please note that the coping strip (white to match the background fabric, added after the setting triangles) is only an estimate size.  You will need to adjust yours to match your border size after you’ve assembled the center and squared it.

Scrappy Half Square Triangles (2 quilts).  There are pictures of the finished black and cream quilt in my 2012 Sewing and Quilting Gallery.  I’m currently quilting the other.

My Christmas Quilt:  Pictures of this quilt finished are in my 2014 Sewing and Quilting Gallery.

Scrap Jar Baby Quilt:  This one was designed after seeing a tutorial for this block.  I added two borders to complete the look.  Pictures of my completed quilt can be seen in my 2014 Sewing and Quilting Gallery.

Up and Away:  You can find pictures of my finished quilt in my 2013 Sewing and Quilting Gallery.

Wild Whacky Log Cabin:  I made this quilt for my niece.

Tumbling Baby Quilt:  This is one of my favorite baby quilts.

King Size Star:  I made this quilt for our bedroom, along with some coordinating pillows.  You can see the finished quilt and pillows in my 2013 Sewing and Quilting Gallery.

Little Boy Blue:  I made this quilt up for a donation quilt.

Pirate Monkey Quilt:  I made this quilt for a donation quilt.  It was probably the most fun quilt I’ve ever made!  The embroidery designs of course are not included with my EQ file, you can purchase them or substitute with other embroidery files of your choice.  I purchased the designs from MM Embroidery Designs.

  4. CJ thanks so much for the EQ7 download of Scrappy X’s Its one of the nicer designs that I have seen that will work with scraps. You have many beautiful quilts, just as nice as the paid designers make. Thanks Again Saundra

    • You’re welcome Saundra and thank you for the kind words. I love designing quilts, but have no desire to write patterns. If someone can follow an EQ layout, I’m more than happy to share.

  7. I am looking for help with removing seeds from berries with a Champion Juicer. I saw a post from the past that you knew how to do it. Thanks for any help you can give me. Deb

    • Hi Deb, simply put your berries in the tube, push them down with the tamper, and the Champion will strip them out. Here’s a video:

      If you’re having a problem with yours, please be more specific and I’ll see if I can help. I LOVE my Champion, I’ve had it for nearly 30 years.
