Electric Quilt 7

I just opened up EQ7. For years I have owned EQ6 but didn't do much with it. In fact, it hasn't been installed on my computer for a number of years. I don't do traditional quilting so why did I purchase this latest version? Time will tell. However, I read a few reviews about it and was interested - again. I won't be making quilts but I do want to do some designing. Here's the Electric Quilt web site. The section, Working With Images, caught my attention in the beginning and since I purchased 10 yards of pre-treated cotton fabric from the C. Jenkins Company, I have to start using it. I wish I could get treated white silk fabric too. I love printing images on the silk.
If you are interested in seeing some virtual quilts, check out the Virtual Quilter. Angie's Bits 'n Pieces has some freebie EQ patterns.
Hopefully, I'll get this program installed this weekend. So many things to do. I am still unpacking after five weeks of travelling. More of that later, especially when I get my photos uploaded.

Here is some good advice if you are new to EQ.

  1. Judy,

    I look forward to seeing what you do with images in EQ7 ..... I may not use the image feature a great deal, but it sounds like fun!

    Thank you for the link!
