    Classes would be nice, but are not necessary...most of us sit with a cup of coffee, and go through the lessons they provide in the manual :wink: The lessons are pretty well written, humorous, not your normal, dry, boring writings...

    For you engineers....my DB showed me how he could make the same blocks I was designing in EQ on a free CAD program he uses LOL He could get more technical with his, but mine came out prettier colored :D:D:D

    For a beginner I love the Quilt Design Wizard. It is very basic and easy to use but limited on designs, only basic patterns that they say are 200 but I dont think there are that many.
    It only costs 29 dollars and worth every penny especially if you want to change the size of blocks. That comes in real handy.
    You cannot design your own blocks with it but it does have a connection to the web to download a new pattern every month for free. You can rotate, resize and it has several border options.

    Hi Rose Marie - I started with QDW and I think it's worth it! It's much simpler than EQ but very similar in lots of ways. Once you get to grips with QDW (and my 7 year old designs on it now!), it makes the learning curve on EQ a little less steep. For those not sure about investing the bucks in EQ, I'd say start with QDW and see how you go. :-D
