    i got a new computer for Christmas and want to get some quilting software for it. i do not have a clue of what to get. i am an advanced beginner as far as following a pattern for quilting. i have made things just from my head for many years, and i want to combine the stuff from my head and something with an actual plan. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

    EQ 6 is the one I would choose. I haven't upgraded to 6 because I can't afford it; no job at the moment. I've been using EQ5 for several years. It's easy to learn and you can do a lot with it.

    That's my admittedly biased preference. There are several programs available. If you belong to a quilt guild, you might ask some of the members there to let you try the software, they use on their computer or at least watch over their shoulder. Software is a non returnable item. So if you can try before you buy, so much the better.

    EQ6 was one of the best buys I made this year. I love it.
