It's amazing how many well known quilt designers use EQ to design the projects they sell!

I am thrilled to finally be able to create some quilts in EQ7. What really jump-started me (after 5 years of getting mostly nowhere) was a free video tutorial series by Kari Schell called "Catch the Waves":

She also has a blog with short video tutorials in her archives: https://www.onpointquilter.com/ . I found her Irish Chain quilt helpful: https://www.onpointquilter.com/blog/double-irish-chain
Oh huge thank-you for starting this thread & for sharing the links as I have always wanted to dive into this program to see if I could learn it. I am awful at math & most patterns confuse me I know sad for a quilter lol

I know...I figure if they can do it so can I... Probably shouldnít admit this but some patterns are easily recreated on EQ8 for personal use so saving on pattern purchases is a plus.

I have had EQ 6, 7, and now 8....Learning curve to each one, but oh what a program! I often redraw patterns so that I am more clear about how they will look.

One thing I can't figure out and can't find an answer for in the help files or the EQ block is how to make a shaped border.

I need to cut the corners off of my larger quilts so that they're not on the floor. I can't figure out how to draw that. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
