    When you get your EQ7 you will be ahead of the game and able to dive in and feel comfortable using it. You can print off these classes and then you will have them to follow.

    Thanks Rhonda, I'll keep practicing until I get this part down really really good. And not try to do more until the next lesson.

    Great tut! Things like getting the color to come across on the block is exactly the kind of problem I have, so I have already learned something. I can hardly wait for next week. Thank you for your time and your knowhow.

    Yes we will cover as much of it as I know how to do and I will be going through the manuals and seeing what more I can learn to pass along. Anything I don't know we will just have to experiment til we understand it!!

    Right now I know I will be covering the rest of the functions on the tools and how to scan fabric / how to look for blocks and add to them. How to add fabric from the manufacturers. Basically how to use the sketchbook and libraries.
    I will show how to design using my shortcuts and how to put them into quilts. We will explore alot of stuff that will help you make quilts.

    Thanks! I now have COLOR!!!!

    Great! Another thing the sketchbook does is to save your colors automatically. When you are changing colors in your quilt it will save the differant colored blocks into your sketchbook automatically so if you need to change something back you can look for that color combination in the Block section in your sketchbook and you can click on that specific block to replace the one in your quilt. this is really nice if you play with a lot of differant color combos in your quilt and want to go back to one you did several changes ago. You don't have to change each and every little spot just change the block. Now when you get as many differant one in your Block section like I do it can be a challenge to find that one block among the crowd but I just click on where I think it is and go left til I have seen all the blocks in that stack and then go to the next stack and keep looking til I find it.

    Please could someone please tell me what is the correct format to put into the box when it ask you to name your project. This is the box that comes up when you first open EQ5. I put several things in there and it kept telling me invalid filename. I really really need someone to answer this for me.

    Make sure you are not using any periods or slash marks in your project name. Try just a simple one word name and see if it will work for you.

    Thank you for your time and expertise in the tutorial on EQ 5,6,and 7. I just might get it yet. Can't wait til the next tut. Are they going to be weekly? Again, aBig Thank You for your time and knowledge. I have problems with vista and my embroidery software, also lost my internal DVD drive to vista. Today some of the tools I needed wouldn' stay on the screen, had to keep going back to get them. Hope it will work, when I use it again.

    You're welcome everyone! Let me know how you are doing with the lesson. Any stumbles? Anything I could have done better? were the pictures enough or should I have added a couple more or so along the way? any feedback is welcome and you might help someone else if you post your experiences. Thanks everyone!!
