    I have been wanting EQ6 and now EQ7 is coming out so I pre-ordered it. I was wondering if any of you quilters use it and if you like it. I already ordered it but would like some input on it. Thanks

    I just got EQ6 a couple months ago, before I knew EQ7 was coming out. The one thing about EQ is, do the lessons. It makes life soooo much easier. I just opened it up and started playing and got myself frustrated!!! The lessons really work!! :lol: :lol: I also have EQ7 pre-ordered and can't wait till next month when it comes in. Now that I have a few of the lessons under my belt, boy am I having fun!!!!

    I've had EQ6 for a month now and just completed the chapter 3 tutorial and love it so much that when I saw the announcement - 2 days AFTER delivery of EQ6 - I knew I had some serious thinking to do. I'm so impressed with 6 and we have an EQ Users group in the community where I live and knowing that several will be upgrading from 5 - 7 I decided I'd better pre-order EQ7 upgrade so I learn with them. I'm very impressed with the software but there is a learning curve. You will definitely need to do to the lessons that come with the program and watch the short tutorial videos as well. I hope you take to it and enjoy it as much as I already do. Now I need to make some time to learn how to use it better. I wasn't sure how useful it would be for me but by the time I completed lesson one, I knew I'd made a good decision. Enjoy

    I really is a very easy program but if you are new to this type of program, I'm sure you feel very overwhelmed. You just need to sit down with the manual and begin with the chapter one tutorial and go through it one step at a time. Don't be afraid to push buttons and see what they do as that will help you feel more comfortable with the program. Be patient and determined and you can learn how to use - I've very serious on that but you have to be willing to do the tutorials. I personally detest tutorials but this book is very well written. I have a problem with the grayed sections of the pages. I'd better if they were in color and/or had different colors of text but this is the way it is and it truly is very well laid out, planned and described. For every verbal instruction, there is a visual diagram on the page which will give you a clue on what you need to be seeing. Start with lesson one and go through it. When they give you the coffee break with suggestions of what to do during that time, follow those suggestions and that's the time to explore the different buttons. I have short term memory issues and this review time and exploration time has been very beneficial for me to implant what each button and tool does and how and when they work and won't work.
