My inspiration (besides the game)
Week one of the quilt along is well underway and so far I have been getting wonderful feedback on it all. I thought I’d take some time and talk a little how this all began.
Fandom in Stitches hosted the Hocus Pocus QAL created by Daphne Seymour. She did an absolutely amazing job on it. This is when I started designing paper piecing patterns. I originally created a small pattern for the Zelda quilts I was working on, and then participated in the design invitational and even created a couple videos. I was so proud of what I had accomplished.
That’s it, that’s all it took. I then knew I could attempt to make a quilt I always knew I wanted but didn’t know how to make. Until now that is. In January 2019 my husband bought me EQ8. I was determined to make the Kingdom Hearts quilt happen and I spent every spare minute learning the program and fine tuning my newfound skill. Starting on the Rankin/Bass patterns and transferring the Hocus Pocus patterns over. Using quilt assistant and EQ8 I slowly started making progress, and then….and then it all started to come together.
