eq & the generosity of friends . . .

Yesterday I played around with that Christmas table topper, mentioned my color/fabric dilemma, asked for input, and got it! One dear blogger friend, Pat, from A Little of This and a Little of Pat, didn't just make suggestions, she opened up her EQ7 and did a little playing around for me!

First, she replaced the cream with a green and sent me this one:

Then, at my request, she tweaked it just a tad and sent this one back. I love this!!! The holly fabric has just a hint of gold glimmer going through it; I think it would be pretty if the green did, too. Look, it even has the binding on it!

Then she just played around with the block and sent me three alternatives:

Of the alternatives, this last one is my favorite! I didn't realize how easy/fun/handy EQ was. I've never seen it used. I'm rather fascinated by the catalog of fabrics it has in its library. I think this convinces me that I'd like to have it! I may have to adjust my birthday list! :)

Pat thank you *so* much for doing this for me! I do hope today finds you feeling better!

And my son sent me a smile. I watched Sawyer on Saturday evening when they set him down with the book -- he turns the pages and everything! What a precocious rascal he is! And a reader, to boot -- gotta love it!

Moo, moo!

When I first looked at those 3 blocks, my eyes kept going to the one in the middle. They are all an improvement since they use 3 colore. It gives much more contrast. Enjoy making your squares. Love & blessings from NC!

Oh, you are so kind to mention this...I enjoyed doing it for you. I love how Sawyer is studying his book!!!

Pat is certainly a sweetheart and so very talented. I love the tweaks she made in this design. Amazing how simple little changes can really make a huge difference. Can't wait to see what you create with this design. Going to be spectacular.
