I got my income tax back a few days ago. Had enough to pay the house taxes with a little left over. Decided to take the leap and ordered EQ6. I have Quilting Wizard and love it, but would like to have more options. I always freak out about spending this kind of money. Please, does anyone else have this program ( I know some of you do TEE HEE) and reassure me I did the right thing. Thanks.

Yep, I'd say you did the right thing. (but I've been called an enabler of sewing things before) *LOL*

I've only had it maybe about 2 weeks and I love it! You'll have a blast making new blocks and knowing how much fabric to buy. It'll also show you templates for cutting or rotary cutting..

I love mine too.

Even when I can't sew, I love to design quilts on there. I have tons, and of course will never make them all. That part of it, is like a really addicting computer game to me. :lol:

I've been using EQ ever since their first edition and EQ6 is WONDERFUL and much easier to use than their other versions. If you ever have a question, go to the EQ forum and they will help you out or tell you where in the book to look. http://doyoueq.com/phpBB3/index.php

I've used EQ since it was on floppy discs! I remember when the creator said he would never use Windows format for the program only DOS. :!: You really learned how to use a computer back then. :wink:
It cost about the same then as it does now. Once you buy it you only have to buy the upgrades for the next version which aren't much at all.

I stopped feeling freaked about spending money on items I want when I found myself writing a check for my child's birthday party and felt okay about it because she is my little princess and she deserved it. Hmmm, something is wrong with this picture..........

When I first got EQ I was determined to learn to use everything it had to offer. Well, that didn't happen. At first I used it all the time. Now I use it when I want to audition colors or just play or figure out yardage, and it's worth it for that alone! You will not be sorry you took the plunge!
