    Me & My Mac dream about the EQ program, but that's all we can do at this point.

    I had all your lessons printed out and put them in a binder. Now what I need to do is find the time to go lesson by lesson and learn how to use this EQ7. Maybe this spring?
    Thank you so much, Rhonda.
    Sew many Quilts.......so little time!

    all of the lessons will work for EQ7 I showed EQ5 as it is my favorite but where EQ6 and 7 vary in any way then I show all 3 versions for that lesson. so if you see it in EQ5 then it is the same in EQ7 or if it is any diff then I show EQ7 also so you can see the diff. the only real diff is sometimes things like tools are in a diff place in the diff versions. I didn't get into alot of the bells and whistles in EQ7 as some of them I don't know how to do either. Maybe some day soon I'll pick up where I left off. I was teaching myself to do some of those things and after writing the lessons on them I promptly forgot alot of what I learned LOL

    You'll have fun with it once you learn how. I love all the possibilities there are in how to design a quilt block and quilt.

    The EQ7 user manual is your friend. Pages 70-71 gives you the instructions to making an On-Point quilt.

    I am soooooo glad that you did this series. I was so completely lost that I had put EQ aside. More often than not I talked about the program than used it. Printed out the 23 lessons and am anxious to begin using it thanks to you.
    Now, a question how about 5D quilt creator software? Do you use it?

    I personally found the manual confusing and not in the right order. It has instructions but for a visual person like myself the pictures aren't helpful to me. I would hunt and hunt for what I had questions on and couldn't find it more often than not. So after hearing from others that they were intimidated by the program I wrote the lessons.

    sorry I only know EQ5 6 and 7. and I haven't attempted some of the more complicated things in 7 yet. maybe some day.

    Rhonda, I am so grateful to you for taking time to post your lessons! I am a visual learner, and your posts are so helpful! I am having fun designing a medallion quilt with a group on the block of the month forum. Never would have been able to do what I have done without your help!
    Question.....every time I save something new in my sketchbook, I have to exit the program and go back into it in order to see my new block or colors or layout. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? The PC I am using with my EQ5 has windows Xp.....which I know is outdated, but such is life!

    Thanks for any words of wisdom......
    Jill

    I'm glad they are helping you Jill. As far as I know if you go into your sketchbook you should be able to see the updates with out closing and reentering your EQ. My older computer has XP and that is what I started with on the EQ

    No you shouldn't have to exit the program. Do you still see your worktable with your new block or whatever you are working on after you save? When you save what happens with your worktable? Why are you exiting and going back in? You should still see whatever you saved on your worktable. it may be a glitch in your EQ5 as it is over 20 yrs old and mine has glitches sometimes. without knowing exactly what you are doing when you save I'm not sure if it is something you are doing. I'd say probably not.

    Last evening I drew a new block, colored it, and saved it to my sketchbook, and I also click the icon on the left screen that saves it-not sure what that does! . When I went to my quilt layout and brought up my sketchbook of blocks, my new block was there, but it wasn't the colored version...I exited the program, went back in, and then my colored block appeared in my sketchbook. Happens every time I save something new....I hit that save button a lot, because in the past, I worked on a layout for a long time, and the program froze, and I lost the whole project because I hadn't yet saved any of it!

    When you go into your sketchbook you will see the block without color. just look below it to find the arrows. all you have to do is click on the right arrow to see the next color version of that block. The sketchbook stores up to 10 versions of a block in one place. You will see the block without color and then you click to see the next one and you will see the first color combo you saved. When you change colors in your quilt or block on the worktable the sketchbook will save every change you make. so when you go into sketchbook to see your block or quilt you will find several color versions of that same block in one place. you just have to click the right arrow to see the next one in the "pile" of blocks. as if you had stacked several blocks on top of each other. hope that makes sense.

    As for the saving you dont' have to do both one or the other will save it. It is quicker to just click on the sketchbook pic that saves it than to go to the menu and find save.

    Ahhhhh...........thank you so much for the lightbulb moment!! haha. Yep. The colored blocks are right there "under" the original block! Technology is a dangerous thing in the hands of an old person! (me!)

    you are priceless!

    Sorry it took me a bit to figure out what your problem was. That's why I ask alot of questions. It occurred to me that I don't think I addressed that issue in the lessons. Hmm may have to add another lesson on using the sketchbook.
    I have similar problems when using a new site. It is so annoying to hunt for functions that should be in front of your face but I can't find what I am looking for LOL

    I bought a new printer and do you think I could find where to see how much ink I had left? I even resorted LOL to the help manual and still had trouble. I finally noticed when I went into my control panel and then the printer I want to use and there is a menu where it says printer status and ink information. Duh! It only took me weeks to find this LOL

    Thank you Rhonda for doing this. Got EQ 7 last year and really haven't used it much but with this info hopefully will be able to figure out what everything means. Thanks again.
