Default EQ question about fabrics

Does anyone know how to do scrappy in EQ? Any version. I mostly do scrappy quilts but am at a loss as to how I can make my EQ creations look scrappy without spending a great deal of time recoloring every single piece in a quilt.

I've also been unable to figure out how to rotate just a whole row or column of blocks.

Any suggestions please.

Thanks in advance.

I've also wished for the scrappy option. I'd like to just specify light, medium, or dark for the patches in a block and let EQ randomly fill in the fabrics from libraries that I designated as light, medium, or dark. (Electric Quilt - are you listening?)

You can rotate all the blocks at once, or every other block, or individual blocks. But I agree that rotation by row or column would also be nice.

Good ideas! I, too, hope EQ is listening!

I make a couple of different scrappy colorings of the blocks, then insert the blocks into the quilt. Flipping and rotating the blocks helps make the color placement random, too.
