    Judy, perhaps you can answer my question! I want to do swirls and landscapes and need a program that will allow me to put in both colors and shapes... and then adjust them. I posted (in an effort to see if I could figure out HOW to post) a picture of a quilt I made for my sister. It wasn't until I saw it on the screen that I saw how out of balance it is!!! I need some sort of program that will let me see (basically) the finished product. I am not a "block" person, particularly (I do make blocks, but not neat or small pieces ones because of my arthritis I have to use needle nose pliers to hold small pieces.) :-(

    Oh, the question... will the electric quilter 7 allow me to free design, or is it only for blocks? Sierra

    Yes, you can free-design. You can use Patch Draw to trace an image or draw freehand or make an applique shape. The only requirement is that all shapes have to be completely enclosed, meaning you can draw a circle or ellipse or other shape and pull the curves out into your shapes. You can also import photos to be used in your quilt. New to EQ7, you can also apply filters, just like in PaintShop or Photoshop programs. Does that help you?

    I wanted everyone to know that Electric Quilt is having a BOM sewing contest from one of their blocks, and you could win software. Go to: http://www.doyoueq.com/blog/?p=1993

    You can see my January block under the pictures. Have fun!

    your fabrics are also possible in 6. i have 7 and haven't yet seen that it's so much different. I think I need to take more time to play with it.

    EQ7 - quilting design audition

    I would like to learn to put my test quilting designs on it to audition them. That's what I want to do, need to spend the time learning where to get them, how to apply them. Anyone who has done it, give a shout and any tips and tricks are appreciated.

    I still have EQ5 and I am able to do most anything with quilt designs. But I can't seem to get the downloadable fabrics from their website to work. Anybody have any suggestions???? Please post and then PM me...... I am NOT sure they are answering questions regarding version 5.

    I just loaded EQ7 onto my new computer - the other computer didn't have internet access! I've been on the website to check out the lessons - my goal is to learn how to use this product - maybe I will do it in the evenings when "watching" TV with the hubby. I've seen quilts that others have designed and have heard that others use this product a lot. It does have a good learning curve - but doesn't everything that is worthwhile!

    EQ7is awesome. I had 6 first, learned how to use it and 7 made a lot of things even easier. You could scan fabrics in 6 too, but in 7 you can edit them right in the program rather than having to use another program to do so before importing. I've programmed every quilt I've made except the very first one into EQ, couldn't live without it!
