    I was going to ask for feedback on purchasing the EQ 7, but, I searched it, and everyone seems to love it. I am about to order it, once I convince myself I am worth it, so, I would definitely appreciate new feedback from anyone that is using EQ 7. A while back, I asked fellow board members to do me a mock up of a dresden plate on point, and they did a beautiful job. DH says go for it...it will just enhance your creativity, but, $190.00 plus taxes and shipping...ouch. So, please any feedback at this point would be greatly appreciated. I really only need alittle coaxing...LOL!

    I bought it, I installed it and I've not done a single thing with it. It is pitiful.

    I am sure you will be delighted. I have own Electric Quilt since back in '95 when I met with Penny at the Houston Quilt Market. I have owned EQ3,4 and 5 and I have been delighted with them all. It makes any alternation with block sizes so easy. No more drafting with a pencil or using the calculator. Everything will be there. It just will take a little practice as with any computer software. GOOD LUCK and HAVE FUN !!!

    I've had mine for over a year and love it. It takes time to get used to--like every new piece of software. The tutorials are great; it's learning by doing. Each time I use it I pick up something new. If you are used to going to graph paper you will enjoy this. And I do use the calculator once in a while. Go for it!

    Go for it! You will love it.
    Once you get it, be sure and register it. That will get you into their data base and when the next upgrade is out there, you can get that for a real savings.
    Enjoy!

    I have EQ6 and have messed around with it off and on. Made a great pattern for a Lone Star quilt that I made a sold. It's fun, but it takes practice and you have to learn a lot.

    I was fortunate and able to buy it for $138 a few months ago but if I had to pay full retail it would still be well worth it.

    If you like creating for yourself it is worth it.

    I just designed a block on it last week which I will use soon.

    You can use traditional blocks, modify, draw, and much more.

    GO FOR IT!

    I love it! Love it, love it!!!! Did I say I Love it? :D Watch for sales though, don't pay the $190 retail price. Just be warned that quilting will take a back seat for a while. Once you do some of the lessons, you'll be playing and designing instead of sewing. LOL It really is sooooo much fun!

    I've had EQ since it was on DOS. When I first started quilting I saw an ad for it in the back of a quilt magazine. I ordered right then and if I remember it was about the cost of what it is now! I've gotten the upgrades ever since. I keep wondering how EQ could get any better but each upgrade adds more and gets easier to use. There is a learning curve but the more you use it the better it gets.

    I bought it a few months ago and started to learn to use it.
    I takes a lot of practice. It's a good thing that I do not mind learning new computer skills as with any new computer program I find that we have to take the time it takes to get used to them.
    I like it and I succeeded in drawing patterns that I wanted to try. I scanned all of my fabrics (I don't have a huge stash) Then you can use the colors and fabrics that you own and it gives you a better idea of what you might want to make.

    Like you, I really hesitated before I bought it. At the end I decided it would be my Chrismas or birthday or whatever gift from me to me with all my love (any excuse is good)
    I am not a prolific quilter but why not!)

    I agree, you can definitely get it cheaper than $190. I've had mine for 6 months before even touching it. But I used it this past weekend and I think I'll love it too!

    It has a learning curve. But, it's a great product once you figure it out.
