We’ve made it to the last block of the sew along and learned so many useful EQ7 skills along the way. I hope you’ll continue to work with the software and learn even more.

Here’s my Block 4: Don’t forget that you can always find the sew along posts here on the blog if you’d ever like to go back and revisit one of the lessons. On the main menu bar (under Behind the Mouse), hover your mouse over Sew Alongs and then choose EQ7 Jump Start from the drop-down menu. You can find other past sew alongs there too. If you’re interested in learning more about drawing your own blocks you should check out the EQ7 Summer Drawing Series from last year! To Link Up Your Photo Scroll down to the comment form at
