****Please note: I have to come clean about the KMA Twilight Quilt. It isn't my design. The design was shared with me while a member of TQC or as known now, Twi-Quilters. (Elizabeth Mills) If designs and ideas can routinely be borrowed from me and other people, then I don't feel bad at all in returning the favor.... I don't know if it's an exact replica as I was working from a diagram, but it's darn close.
I've looked at the quilt and I've decided that the best attack is to get it into EQ7. Doing so will keep me organized, I hope, and give me some EQ practice. Files could be shared directly out of EQ, too.
I think the easiest way to get the Layout done is to design the quilt with Custom Set. I opened a EQ7, skipped past the Tip of the Day, and named my project: KMA Twilight Quilt. I chose New Quilt from Quilt on the menu bar and then chose Custom Set.
The next step was to input my quilt measurements using the Layout tab. I think the quilt is 60"x76" with borders, but this might change. I entered 46x62 to define the layout as the borders are added by another function.
For the borders, I used the Borders tab and added the three borders I see on the quilt. I chose Long Horizontal for now. The first border is 1", the second 2", and the third is 4". The measurement was right at 60"x76".
I used the next tab for Layer 1 to set some blocks and sashing. (I added this blank layout to my Sketchbook at this point as a sort of base template.) I needed a blank block to use so I selected Worktable, Work on Block, colored it white, and saved it to my Sketchbook by clicking on its icon in the toolbar. I set these white blocks into the quilt....I'm sure there's a better way, but I just used the Set Block function to set a bunch of random sized blocks and then I resized them and positioned them using the Adjust function (which has its own icon on the left toolbar).
At this point I decided I needed some color!
