Thread: EQ7 Help, paper piecing

  1. #1

    Question EQ7 Help, paper piecing

    I know a lot of you use EQ7 and I need an answer to probably a stupid question, so here goes.

    Here is a little background:

    I have already been to the EQ site and know that the block that I have created is mine and I can do with it as I wish, it even states that in their copywrite section for EQ7, so I can distribute this block freely.

    I am designing the mystery quilt for Labor Day weekend and I have come across a snag. The border of the quilt has some really off the wall angles, like 58 degrees, so I have decided that the borders will be paper pieced. I know that if I print the page on my printer, it will be correct and the right size, but if I try to copy this page and put it on my website for download, how do I do this to insure distortion free copies to all players?

    Quite a few of the patterns I print out have a 1 in square that you measure after printing to ensure you pattern is the correct size. Could you add something like that to it?
    If it makes you happy, it's worth the time!

    I thought about that and I think that may be the answer.

    I have tried calling all of the shops that EQ lists on their website as 'retailers' 2 of which I would not step foot into if you paid me to do it, one did not answer, one was an answering machine, one, when I asked her if she could answer a question about EQ7, she wanted to know what that was! and one had a teacher, but she was out of town Its 11am, so everyone should be open, but no one has the lights on yet!.

    I looked for a phone number for EQ on their site and you have to fill out a form and they will call you.. geese, how hard is it to answer a question?????

    OMG!!! I found the number for EQ inside the User Manual (duh!) I called and they answered!! No answering machine, no, wait till I can find someone to help you.. just a straight forward answer and she even walked me through how to do it while I was on the phone!

    Problem solved!

    Answer - print as a pdf! DUH again!

    Ok, onto next challenges for this quilt!!
