So . . . I popped on over and signed up for a trial account. Threadbias is an online community where you can share patterns, projects, pictures, and play with their Live Design Tool. I didn't spend to much time checking out the community, but I got familiar with the Design Tool while drafting my little Challenge Entry. I found it a little difficult at first, most likely because the way you design is quite a lot different from EQ7 which is what I am used to. But after a little bit, I started to get the hang of it. And before to long, I had drafted up my Star Surround Block into a quilt top. (I decided to draft up something I had already designed so that I could focus on learning the program and less on the designing, that and I am strongly leaning towards a quilt-a-long and it is fun to see it in quilt format :)
So here is my entry. I am calling it A Rose Among Thorns. The contest goes until May 5th so if you want to give the designing tool a try and maybe win some awesome fabric, pop on over ;)
Just wondering . . . When writing this post I debated about writing why I liked my EQ7 for designing more than this Design Tool, but I realized it wouldn't be fair as I have been using EQ7 for 2 years and the design tool for 2 hours. So then I thought, maybe I should just write a post on what I like (or love being the case) about EQ7. Would you be interested in a post like that??
