Hear ye…..Hear ye!! EQ7 Giveaway

 

EQ7_L3d

I really love using my EQ7 full program to design my quilts and different table runners and patterns. From designing these in EQ7 I am able to get exact measurements and know how much fabric I am going to need too.

I designed the Springtime quilt that Fresh Hope now has

Quilt 

- This is what I had in EQ7 done up and this is the finished quilt….

Springtime All the girls stitched their blocks and Dawn put the quilt together and the pattern was written up from EQ7 and is now available to purchase thru Fresh Hope. But of course you know all this.

A few other patterns that I have had published were designed in EQ7 and I really got to say ….I love this program!!

My Around The Christmas Tree pattern was designed in EQ7 too….

christmastree

and I find that when I need to work out borders and blocks I put the design into EQ7 and let it work it out for me. So much easier than trying to figure out the maths. Never was any good at that in school. Now if someone had said…..Vicki, you need to learn maths and geometry because later on you will need to use it for patchwork then I might have enjoyed doing it way back then in school.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  27. Wow Vicki

    What a great offer. To experience EQ7 would be amazing. Designing is something I dabble in now with graph paper & pencil EQ7 would sure change that.

  39. Hi - I've been a follower of your blog since I started blogging! I'd love to own the EQ7 as it would make it easier to transform ideas of quilts into reality. I love to quilt and would like to do more designing, but being time poor (with 8 kids!) it is a rare opportunity to be able to sit down and think of a new design. I love to make quilts designed by other people, but love to play with designs as well. Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  40. Obviously, I was supposed to make this two comments - so here is the official "I am already a follower" comment. Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a wonderful opportunity. I wouldn't mind winning because it's something I just can't afford! I do all my 'designing' the old fashioned way (I prefer to use the term "traditional") and have reams of graph paper scribbles. Some are in notebooks, some are still on the pad, others are under this pile, or tucked in that book!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. OMG what a great program! I knew about the blocks layout, but I had not thought about stitchery blocks and settings for them, too!!!I would love this!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would love this program, how much easier things would be.
    I am a follower.

  134. I have heard about EQ program for such a long time but I've never been able to experience it so I would love to try it. With limited time for sewing, I am sure it would be a very valuable tool rather than calculating on pieces in paper. I liked maths at school but I am rusty now!

  162. This is my first entry, and would like to say that I'd love to have this program because it would help me figure out what fabric amounts I need. The first quilt I made for my mother for her birthday, I ended up getting WAY to much fabric for the quilt and ended up with 2 yards of fabric of each print left over. Let's just say that I didn't want too much left over but didn't mind either.

    This program would help me tremendously!!!
