EQ 7 is wonderful and EQ software has been the top quilt design software in the industry for 25 years!
EQ7 made designing this quilt so much easier than if I had to draw it on paper and colour it in. It is a wonderful design tool because you can decide on the size of your quilt and whether it needs sashing, blocks, colours, fabric, placement etc and just press buttons, drag and drop and voila your quilt is designed!
I would be sugar coating it if I did not say there are challenges with it. It is a multifaceted program with lots to learn and there in lies the challenge! However, with so many design, block, sashing, border, fabric, colour and quilting options available, once you master the learning curve you have designs that you can "visually audition" and draw accurately with EQ7.
Tune in next tuesday for my next instalment of this quilt... I'm hoping to get it done fast now that I have mastered the design process with EQ7!
