    I guess I can go check that out. Would rather spend a day in a classroom, but this is the next best thing.

    I rarely design a pattern in EQ but I love it for figuring out where I want the colors to go. Also, I had some fabric and I was able to work up a quilt in EQ that needed the right amounts to use all of the fabric. I think I had a yard here, a yard and a half there, a half yard, etc. I was able to use all but maybe 1/4 yard. I did this by picking out the pattern I wanted and kept swapping the colors and checking the yardage until it matched what I had on hand.
    Oh Gale, Sure wish you lived closer. I am more of a hands on person and really could use some moral support. Beth

    I have 4, 5, 7. I have used it now and then and really need to get serious. It has to be something that you enjoy. I remember looking at an old quilt and taking a pic and got into EQ and drew the pattern and made it....that was so neat.

    There are some books with each EQ by Fran Gonzales. EQ Simplified. It's like being in class. The lesson are so easy. Just do one at a time, it's amazing. There are several books to teach you drawing etc and they are really simple to follow. I hate going to class so these books work for me.

    There was a sale on last month, I think at half price and I picked up a couple more stand alone programs. Even tho I love the patterns and books, It's good to have the programs to do things I see, or to design...we have to have everything anyway, don't we?
