Warp and Weft Quilt

I am excited about getting this out in pattern form. I pinned it to my bedroom wall to take a photo. It motivates me to bind it, so I can hang it properly. The solid is an Amy Butler linen I have had forever. The other 2 are also from Amy Bulter. I love how it brightens the wall behind my king size bed. This quilt is 51" square. I have Alice piecing another one for me in a bed size out of Parson Grey fabrics for my son. He is going to love it.
This was the first project I used to try out my new EQ quilting software. The one drawback is the software does not allow for strip piecing which is how I do this quickly, so I need to write the instructions by hand. Using EQ, I was able to audition fabrics for the quilt without cutting into it, which was great. The program also gives you yardage which is awesome. So far, I am glad I got the program.
Lots more happening right now, but I wanted to pause and share this with you.
