    Rhonda when you say the following, can you tell me where are we suppose to find the word NEW at?
    I see Easy Draw but not really sure about New.

    Then click on New - Easy Draw.

    Thanks so much for all this help, it really is helping me.

    I did not know there was a rotating tool. Thanks for showing where it was.

    Yes got the color to work finally, hopefully it will continue. Duh me, I guess I should have kept looking. Changed it to work on block and found it. Thanks for putting up with this dummy, I use to be pretty good about this stuff but as I age, I guess my brain is just getting smaller. GGG

    Would it be possible to have these tutorials as .pdf files? I appreciate all of this, but I know I would like to practice several times until this becomes ingrained in my old lady brain.

    I did post it earlier in the thread. I am going to post it in each tutorial after this.

    Here is the PDF for Week 2. I will try to remember to do this when I post each lesson.

    Rhonda, I don't know if you said this earlier or not but if you want the same block in the whole quilt hold your control key down and set your block and it will fill in the whole quilt. Then you can turn them.

    Finally got a minute to do the lesson, want to be ready for tomorrow! Thanks so much for sharing these tutorials with us all. One thing I find, if I remember to save things to the sketchbook as I go along then it's easier for me.

    Rhonda,
    Thank you for doing this. I have EQ7 and thought I followed all of your steps but don't get any dots in my blocks so I can't draw the lines like you're doing. What have I missed? Thank you!

    Find Worktable in the top tool bar
    click on worktable
    Click on Block
    Click on Drawing Board Setup
    Click on Snap Grid
    You will see up on the top right a place to indicate your dots.
    Choose to click on large dots if you want to. It makes them easier to see.
    The dots are just very very faint otherwise. They won't show in any quilt blocks
    then save it.

    That should help.

    Thank you for being so kind to post your lessons...
    Can you provide Week one and two in PDF? I am having trouble copying these instructions.
    Thanks

    I was doing fine until I got to the point of changing colors. I don't have anything at the bottom of the screen that says "colors". I'm determined to learn this program and so appreciative of Rhonda's hard work.
