Just had to share this with you all. Finally got the courage up today to plunk down the dosh for EQ5. Was looking at EQ6 but was unhappy about activation restrictions as I mentioned in another thread, so was unsure what to.
Took on board what Patrice had to say about the main new feature being the scanning of fabrics to add to your EQ stash, and as that really isn't what I want it for, took the plunge with EQ5.
Have had a little play with it this evening, mainly simple shapes and the wreath tool, but can already see many possabilities. Am so happy, have waited ten years for this, had to wait till I could afford a computer good enough to be able to run a quilt design software programme.
My old computer (now don't laugh) had 8 yes that's right I said eight mb of ram. (stop laughing) Is one of the origional IBM machines, It's a classic :lol: My new one has 512 mb, wee bit of a difference in performance :lol:
Anyhow am really wrapped to finally have quilt design software, can't wait to get into it some more. Will be even harder now to get off the puter and do some actual sewing work :lol:
Thanks for all the advice and chat from folks it all really helped me with my decision.
