    Well, if you know what your quilt should look like, should you not be able to put it together with the photo? Just asking, not being sarcastic.

    Thank you so much, I will look into a class.

    EQ7? If not EQ7 then what is heavy and needs a dedicated space? This is causing me confusion! lol

    That sounds promising! Thank you so much!

    You can log on to the Quilt University class anytime...the only thing is they close the class 2 weeks after the last class. You can print or save the lessons to your computer for future reference.

    I had EQ6 and didn't like it so I sold it. LucyInTheSky posted a tute the other day on using Excel. I prefer it, it's more fun.

    I bought EQ5 several years ago. I love it. I can not justify upgrading though :( The fun thing about it is my 3 yr old boy thinks it is a game and is wanting to constantly play the quilt game. He has so much fun placing the blocks and recoloring them. (usually the same color for the whole block). I enjoy designing my own blocks and layout. Also getting an idea of how much fabric to buy. So if in your budget I say go for it. :D

    I think you're talking about the accuquilt Go machine. The thread is about EQ7 which is software to design quilts.

    Same here, except I'm a EQ5 owner. They offered it to me for $147. It's not an upgrade, because 5 cannot be upgraded. 7 is a whole new program, so I would get it witha $50 discount. I'm trying to decide if it's worh it. 5 was a pain in the neck - so many bugs that it was usually easier to dig out my graph paper & colored pencils!

    Talk me into it!

    I had 5 and loved it (maybe I skipped over the bugs) but 7 is better and definitely worth it. At the time I got mine, the "upgrade" price wasn't any better than the full price but it was before it came out and a lot of stores had great preorder deals. I think it was around $142 so not far from what you've been offered.

    Sounds good to me, I guess if you watch your 3 year old, you might learn something from him! lol

    You know I am not going to tell you what I paid for my photo editing program, so this price really isn't that high! I am going to order it from a neighborhood province!

    The upgrade is the same as the full program, only you have to have EQ6 to upgrade.

    Thanks for your valuable input!

    Tree Frog I had EQ6 and just updated to EQ7 and I absolutely love it. I love all the features that it has and I think it is well worth the investment. JMHO!!
    IO also have both. I love being able to down load my fabrics and put them where I want them to see how the blocks or whole quilt will look like before cutting into my fabric. I think it is worth getting it.

    Hello

    I ordered my copy of EQ7, and should be getting it any day now! I just cannot wait to get it. I have an idea for a quilt and can't wait to see how it turns out. What I can't wait to see is what it will look like with different colors!
