Introducing Mockup Mondays!
Recoloring designs in EQ8 can be a bit of a time sink, but what a fun time sink it is! Since I've already spent the time, and I know I'll succumb and do it again, and again, I thought I might as well share some of the versions I've come up with.
Some of the images are actual quilts, some are digital images. I plan to share alternate colour mockups on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month. Enjoy!
Check out this post for a peek at how Shinny Blossoms is put together (spoiler: stitch-and-flip corners and strip-piecing for speed and ease) and this post for closeups of some test blocks.

Lower left: Actual quilt using assorted fabrics:
- Grey and white shiny solids in the points and checkerboards are Kona Sheen (Silver Filigree and Glacier Grey, respectively) from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
- Grey swirls in the large petals is Winter Village: Gray River by Amanda Murphy for Benartex
- Background is Shadow Play from Maywood Studio. I think the color is Fuschia (MAS513-MJS)
- The pink/fuschia print framiong the blooms is Marrakesh Fusion: Seeds of Marrakesh by Katarina Roccella (FUS-M-2008) from Art Gallery Fabrics
Th dynamic of the design changes with each colourway. One thing I always find challenging is imagining a design I like in different colour schemes. EQ8 seems like a lot of fun as well as being helpful when creating a new design.ReplyDelete
I always find it fun to see the same pattern in different colorways and value placement. They can each appear to be a whole new design!ReplyDelete
I'll enjoy seeing the different colour mock ups & good on you for using EQ8. I have EQ6, but find it confusing, so still mainly use my old Quilt Wizard program, graph paper & colour pencils. Maybe I'm getting too old for a lot of this new technology. Take care & hugs.ReplyDelete
