Author and designer, Karen Combs does!

Karen loves quilts of illusion! Karen depends on EQ to help her design quilts for her 9 top-selling books and the hundreds of patterns she’s created.

Karen has been designing fabrics for quilters since 2001, designing over 100  fabric collections, both quilting cottons, and batiks. EQ helps her create quilts using her fabric designs.

Her Craftsy class New Directions in Tumbling Blocks is a favorite among students.

 “I’ve used EQ since it came out in 1990. I’m thrilled with the latest EQ software, EQ8.  I love how easy it is to use and create. In just a few minutes, I can have an idea on the screen, trying out different colors, fabrics and variations.  It is instant gratification!”
