I find myself constantly adjusting patterns to meet my fabric needs. I also like to have an overall visual of what I am doing before I start to be sure it looks the way I want it to when I don't follow a pattern outright. I find myself spending a lot of time in photoshop piecing together what my proposed design will look like and then have to calculate if I even have enough fabric to do it. I am a somewhat techy person so decided to look to see what quilt programs were out there. The one I am hearing most about is EQ7.
I have had the opportunity to try out EQ5 and found it extremely limiting, I could not find a way to design quilts that are not rows of blocks, for example would I be able to do something like these?
I don't want to invest the money if it is not going to meet my needs 100% as I will keep to my pen and paper/photoshop method for much cheaper.
Thanks for your help!
Edit to add: I guess what I am looking for is the ability to merge blocks together and then resizing each individual row or column (much like excel)
