Color My World

I was feeling a little bored today. It's not like I don't have anything I can or should be doing, it's just that I wanted to do something different. So I opened up my EQ6 program and played. What fun!

Behold -- I bring you "Color My World."

In case you might be interested, below is a little info on how I came to the final product:

First, I drew the pinwheel flower using the applique drawing tools and clicking the drop down menu to make a diamond and rotated it to the position I wanted.

Then I used the "wreathmaker tool" to make it look like a pinwheel flower (a little trial and error time here to get it the way I wanted it to look).

Next, I used the drop down menu to draw a circle for the center.

And, last, but not least, I tilted the block 70 degrees.

Of course, in between all of that, I clicked the requisite "center to block" and also resized it to my taste.

Then I had a blast coloring it and adding borders using the "auto border" tool. This program is so user friendly and fun to use!

BTW, if this is all Greek to you non-EQ6 users, then I hope you just enjoy looking at the end result. :o)

So what do you think? A future quilt, perhaps?

Hope you have a fun day, too!

Your design is a-maze-za-zing! I know what you mean about the EQ program. I only have EQ5 but my youngest son and I have tons and tons of fun on it. Often staying up way past our bed time.
