EQ6 and EQ7 Quilt Design Software
Designing a block or quilt using EQ6 or EQ7 can be easy and fun, if you know a few basics.
In our journey of learning EQ6 and EQ7, we will explore many different design functions. Designing your quilt can range from choosing a pre-designed quilt and simply changing the colors and fabrics in the design to designing a quilt completely from "scratch."
Using EQ software, you can upload your own fabrics and scan in your photos, and design your quilt as it truly will be.
At any point in your design process, you can print a picture of your block and quilt, the fabric requirements, templates for cutting your fabric, and rotary cutting instructions.
No more guessing when you arrive at the fabric shop - you will know exactly how much of each fabric to buy.
Also, designing borders is easier with EQ6 or EQ7. You can use their pre-designed borders or design your own using blocks or other design elements.
The EQ Libraries include embroidery designs, thread and photos as well as blocks (both appliqué and patchwork) and fabrics.
And now the EQ7 Libraries include photos that you can use in your quilt designs. In addition, EQ7 allows you to manipulate photos - cut them, change the size, change the colors, and create all kinds of other effects.
With all of these resources, you will be able to test the color of embellishments or quilting designs and determine which is right for the look of your quilt. There is a lot to explore! To begin, take the video tour of the software.
