    Hello Quilters, I am new at quilting and have reviewed thousand of patterns; however, my sister wants a sampler-type quilt using different size quilt blocks. Does any quilt software program allow the user to chose a quilt block and resize it to different inch squares, i.e, from a 12 inch to a 24 inch or even a 36 inch?

    You can do all of that with the Electric Quilt programs.
    They have a simple program Quilt Wizard, or the more common EQ7

    Check out the various programs they have :D:D:D

    Thank you for your response. Even though I am a beginner, I am intriqued with using a software program to create and invision quilts. Do you think it is worth the purchase of EQ7 over EQ6? It appears to be approximately $60 more but do you see an advantage to moving to EQ7 right away? I do not see myself printing on fabric at this time.

    I didn't have either, but with the EQ6 you got a limited amount of installs and then you had to call the company, with EQ7 no limit and can be on 2 computers at once.

    I just received EQ7 but haven't done anything with it yet :oops:
