“I use EQ for nearly all of my patchwork projects and patterns, and I can’t imagine my life without it!!! For me, the ease of reworking a design with the click of a button is invaluable, and I find that it has allowed my designs to advance to a whole new level. Even if I start with a simple paper sketch, the process of playing with the design and trying out new colors and even fabrics in the software helps me to take a design idea that I like, and hone it into something I truly adore. I also love using EQ to make templates quickly and accurately, and I incorporate them into my patterns regularly.” -Amy Gibson
