Thank you to everyone who read and commented on our blog post! We’re so happy we could be part of such an inspirational and fun blog hop, including introducing some of you to EQ8 and how it can help you visualize your quilts! To see more of EQ8 in action, watch the EQ8-demo video!

We had 332 people enter to win a copy of EQ8! One person was selected at random, and without further ado, congratulations goes to…


After reading our post, here’s Patience’s comment, “Wow, this software is so cool. Being able to mock up the different fabrics and colors is so cool! Thank you for sharing!” Congrats again, Patience, now let your design adventure begin!!

Seven other names were drawn at random and sent to Villa Rosa Designs to be entered into more giveaways. Check VRD’s page for a list of those winners.

To enter the giveaways, the question “Which Villa Rosa Design would you create first?” was asked. The resounding #1 choice was, “I want to make them all!” We couldn’t agree more! For individual quilts, Twinkle was first, followed by Gypsy.

Upgrade to EQ8 (from previous versions)

Some of you mentioned that you have previous versions of EQ software. If that’s the case, you may be eligible for a discounted upgrade. For example, if you have EQ7, here’s the link to the page you’ll use to upgrade, and EQ6 owners can upgrade here. **You can use the promo code listed above to save more on either of these upgrades!!
EQ8, even an upgrade, is a stand-alone software, meaning you do not need previous versions installed to use and enjoy EQ8! Contact us if you have questions or need assistance.
