    What pattern are your wanting to make?
    I've found several good patterns (mostly simple) just by Googling the pattern name along with "free paper piecing pattern".

    EQ's Sew Precise is easy and relatively cheap. However, if you like dark lines dividing the segments, you'll need to use a marker and do it yourself...their lines are really faint.

    The patterns I want aren't out there, and I really want to design them myself.

    Thanks!

    Well after posting that yesterday I decided what the heck I'll give it a try. I found it much easier to use than my EQ6. I've been trying for a week to make a pattern using eq6 and this one took me about 3hrs to download, read manual, make block, resize block, made adjustments to pattern and done! Simple and easy to use. I wish Id gotten this along time ago!

    Thanks for the link. I use EQ but this does a very limited range of things very simply and IMHO better than EQ. I've added it to my stable of design programs.

    i have this one and like it very much it is pretty easy to use. I googled quilt designing programs and found it. My husband was laid off from work for 18 months so i could not afford the expensive programs .

    Thanks for the thoughts everyone. I was really hoping for a free program, because I can't afford anything right now....but thank you so much for the help!
