One of users, Marie Trimmer is a long time EQ fan. Marie says, “I have been a user of your software since it was an old DOS program and I wanted to say that I love your design programs.

I don’t claim to be a computer wiz but even I can use it.

I was doing a block of the month program for our guild and it had been years since we did an applique quilt so I decided to plan the entire quilt as applique.

Once again I turned to my EQ6  for patterns and found what I was looking for. There was a few blocks I was looking for that I couldn’t find so ended up drawing a few myself.


When the quilt was finished I took it to the guild and the response was amazing. All of a sudden the people who didn’t want to attempt applique were asking if I still had the printouts!

I had called your office to ask about copyright and the lady I spoke with asked me to send a photo of the quilt when it was finished.

I am so happy to report I have won many first places, an excellence in applique award, two viewers choice awards, best in show and was invited to enter the quilt in the world quilt competition, which I was thrilled to do.

 I called the quilt “Christmas on the Farm”, and in the background I quilted “stories” about my life growing up and some things I remember, including my grand fathers favorite Christmas song.  I’ve attached a close up of your chicken block with the hen house under a shady tree in the background.

 I am keeping my promise to send you this picture and to say thank-you for the great program!”

Thanks, Marie! Congratulations on all your awards! Your quilt is beautiful. We are glad you enjoy EQ!
