Electric Quilt 7 - My Newest Challenge!
We purchased the Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7) program recently and I have been working with it this weekend for the first time. What an amazing program! It is user friendly and awesome in what it can produce. I watched all the tutorial videos and worked through several of the lessons that are included to introduce the features.
We do quite a bit of quilt designing at the shop, coming up with original designs for kits and for customers. The challenge when creating original quilts for kits is then to write the pattern so it is complete, accurate, and easy to understand. I am hoping with EQ7 we can more efficiently come up with original designs and also write better instructions.
We have gotten in several military-theme fabrics recently, and here is a quilt we came up with to showcase some of them.
