Use this tool to display the window, giving information on using buttons and tools. Since there are so many tools in EQ7, you’ll find that some tools get used much less frequently than others. You may also find that you need a quick reminder as to how a tool works. This help window is intended as that quick reference.
2. Hover the mouse over a tool on a toolbar without clicking. The yellow panel will update with information about that tool.
3. Move your mouse over any tool on any toolbar to read about that tool.
For example, here is some of the information for the Set Photo tool.

|Carol Steely of FunThreads Designs was recently featured in McCall’s Quick Quilts Magazine.
Carol says, “Several times a year I like to shrink my scrap bins by creating quilts that will be donated to charity. Specifically our guild’s Bright Hopes and the online Hands2Help charities. When I dig into my scrap bins I always seem to end up creating rainbow or heart themed quilts. Rainbow colors make such happy quilts and hearts are just a wonderful image.
For this quilt I was playing with the EQ7 wreath maker tool. I’ve posted a wreath maker tutorial on my blog.

My original idea was to make each heart ring a color wheel. But, I had so much fun auditioning color choices that I ended up going in a totally different direction. I decided to make each block in a different color way instead. Then I tried shifting the center circle color back one block. Wow, it gave the quilt so much character and movement. I’m a very visual person and I love how fast and easy EQ makes the quilt design process.”
The quilt is so happy and fun! Congratulations to Carol for being featured!

The lesson talks mainly about finding and drawing blocks in EQ7. Lauren uses PatchDraw Motif and walks you through the Precision Bar, Snapping Options, the Drawing Board Setup and more. It’s great, especially for beginners.
