I should lead with the shocking truth… I don’t quilt. I can hear you gasping, “What!?” When I starting working here in 2006 I had never sewn a thing. My first 2 weeks were spent learning the EQ program and as one of the graphic designers here at EQ, I had fun playing in the program. But I was intimidated by the quilt-making process. I got over it and have since made one quilt. I now dabble in sewing little things for my daughters. Halloween costumes, play make-up bags and easy blankets are as far as I've ventured.

This is the first Halloween costume I made for my oldest daughter.

Here on the blog, I’ll be gathering and sharing tutorials, tips, and articles from our favorite EQ gurus in the Gurus Columns. Our users’ EQ projects are often published in magazines so when I find them, I‘ll share those with you here on the blog as well. I’ll also be telling you about what’s going on here at EQ, sales, contest, and new products. Stay tuned!

We always love hearing from EQ users who have won with their EQ designed quilts. We are always impressed with what you are able to do with EQ7  and then amazed at how you bring a virtual quilt to life with stunning execution. It’s never a surprise to us that so many of you are recognized for your designs and talent. This time, we congratulate Serena Vrnak on her win in the Master Division Large Pieced category at the Dallas, Texas quilt show.

I first acquired EQ7 a year ago to take me from graph paper. I was truly surprised with how many designs I could produce with just one block. I am a fan of EQ7.” ~ Serena Vrnak,
