    Does anyone know if there is a place online that has like an electronic design board? I would really like to see what my idea would look like before I go and buy the fabric and put it all together and then have it look really bad.
    Thanks

    some fabric stores have design walls where you can put the fabrics together to see what they will look like. Is that what you are talking about? :D:D:D

    That sounds like what you can do with the EQ program.

    What I was thinking is I want to make a rail fence for my bbysitter for her bday. She loves purple and blue. I was thinking of putting 3 purple together and then 3 blue together and rotating them. I was hoping that I could find a site that would let me see what it would look like. I might have to put some white or something in there to off set the color a bit.?? :?:

    Try this one. I think you can choose a block, and then colour it in.

    I went to this site. I used the thing. I love the thing(can't think of what it's called) I was not surprised that we have to pay to print out the yardage and all but it did exactly what I needed it to do!! Thank you so much for your help!

    I am so glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and joined this board! :thumbup: :D

    If you are computer comfortable, EQ (Electric Quilt) software can help you design your quilt on your computer before you make it. You can choose patterns, colors, layouts, etc. all ahead of time. It is windows based (not Mac :( ) I use it when I m trying something new and want a general idea of how it will look before I invest $.
