Wreathmaker in EQ7

Today's monthly group meeting at Folk Arts in Wakefield, RI played with the wreath maker tool. This tool allows you to take any applique shape and turn it into a wreath. The shape can come from just about anywhere in the program or be imported. Then it can be turned into a wreath with choices of how many, how close together, and then the spacing of the applique. Here's a sample quilt of four blocks, each different.Then I added sashing and an automatic border. One is simply hearts wreathed, another is drawn out brush strokes, then some flower petals, and finally, petal shapes with a pulled out stem. Takes a bit of practice and they all did so well. The variety of what they come up with is the best part ~ they always amaze me!
