Do you EQ? Donna Thomas does!
I’m an EQ junkie. Back in the late eighties and early nineties when I was working on my first few books I went through graph paper like crazy. I jumped on EQ as soon as it was available and have never looked back. I use it for all my designing now and it’s a great help with some of the illustrations submitted for my books.
I love the fact that it is just like drawing on my beloved graph paper. I can begin with a ‘blank’ page and just start playing with new block designs, quilt sets and pieced borders.
EQ just gets better and better with each new incarnation! And now there’s a Mac version, which makes my heart go wildly pit-a-pat since I am a Mac devotee through and through. Being able to import actual fabric files from the manufacturer’s websites means my designs look about as close to the real thing as is possible. When you visit my website, every single quilt in the gallery, my books and my line of patterns was designed on Electric Quilt software. I can’t imagine my professional life without EQ7.
