“As a Mac user and a designer, I was THRILLED when EQ came out with a version for the MAC.  I purchased it as soon as the EQ7 release was out and have been using it since.  I have upgraded to EQ8 and I love the interface.  Easy to design stunning quilts.  Hands down the best quilt design program on the market!”
