    Anyone know of any good free quilt design programs???

    Hi,
    I am interested in getting a quilt design/drawing program, and I don't have the $200 to spend that some programs cost. Does anyone know of free or inexpensive programs that can be downloaded?? Thanks in advance!

    I think there are some very basic design programs. I can't recall the names though. Someone will probably come along with that answer. However, I have EQ5 and it is very comprehensive. There's very little it cannot do that I have wanted it to do. You can buy it used here http://www.amazon.com/Electric-Quilt...1698259&sr=8-7
    There's a learning curve, but Rhonda on the board here is currently giving lessons. Here's the first Rhonda's Electric Quilt Class - Week 1 - Introduction and here's the second Rhonda's Electric Quilt Class - Week 2 - Block Work

    The program, Gimp, can also be used. A member of the board made this tutorial: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-141145-1.htm

    Take a look at this website, they have all kinds of patterns, and they are free. I don't need a program, when I can look on this block, and have them already made for me.

    Electric Quilt also makes Quilt Design Wizard, which is on sale at Amazon for less than $25.
