The IPQ lesson gives step-by-step instructions that everyone can complete together, but you know the design in advance, so we’re calling our Inklingo Periwinkle Quilt a “reverse mystery.”

Note about Firefox There was an update to the Firefox PDF Download Manager last week which caused some confusion. If you want the old Download Manager back, click here (Mac) or:
- In Firefox, select Tools > Options > Applications.
- Find Portable Document Format (PDF) and select Adobe Reader (or Acrobat Reader) or select Always Ask.
- Re-start Firefox.
Part 3 includes
- 3 new Print Checklists
- a project file for EQ6 or EQ7 (download below)
This is a “reverse mystery” because you know in advance what you are making, but the format is similar to the Case of the Secret Garden mystery quilt (COTSG).

Overall designs like octagons can be a bit tricky but Monkey and I were able to do it with extra seams, so you can play with the design in Electric Quilt.
The extra seams make it look as if all of the octagons are half octagons, but you can make allowance for that when you count the shapes.
By the way, adding extra seams works for other designs in EQ too. (We’ll let you play with that on your own.)
If you have EQ6 or EQ7, you can make my design bigger or smaller and play with color.
It is a great way to become familiar with the tools in EQ.
There are several different color variations in the Sketchbook. Doesn’t it look cool?
If you don’t have EQ, part 3 of the lesson includes worksheets to color in two sizes.
It is easy to add an extra row all the way around to change the quilt from about 73 x 73 to about 83 x 83, and you can creat a new version of Monkey’s Cheat Sheet too.

Vici, EQ is awesome for Inklingo and just testing ideas for quilts in general. It also takes a lot of the work out of calculating fabric requirements. I love it for trying out different color combos and you can even scan your fabrics in to see how they would look after piecing.
Because Linda thoughtfully provides EQ files for a lot of the collections, you can jump right in to designing with Inklingo shapes. I think EQ is worth it because it is so easy to play with.
I am interested in EQ but have never used it before. Does it work well with inklingo? Mainly wondered if I would use it a lot and what the benefits are to the program.
Thank you for the EQ7 file, Linda and Monkey. It will be fun to play with.
BTW, I did leave a comment on the QP blog, but it didn’t ‘stick’. Perhaps they have moderation turned on. I enjoyed your post on the QP blog very much… I sent quite a few people over there to read it – they loved it!
