Al Navas is an EQ Ace!

Posted 01-07-2015 by | Posted in: Downloads EQ Designers EQ Software Tips From Our Users Lesson Spotlight Look What I Did New to EQ Related Blogs

In late September Al Navas bought EQ7. By the end of the week he was designing his own quilts. In less than a month he was writing his own EQ lesson! We were intrigued and asked him a little about himself, included how he started quilting.     Al said, “This was pure serendipity! My wife Sandy had been working with embroidery designs for several years, using a Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond machine. I helped her digitize designs using 5D™ Design Creator, a part of the 5D™ Embroidery Extra suite. She also started quilting a few years ago, first using the Desingner Diamond, and also a home sewing machine; she incorporated embroidered blocks in her quilt designs. Meanwhile I kept learning the digitizing process, until I developed a good work flow; I am now confident I can tackle substantial embroidery digitizing projects. A while back Sandy and her sister pooled money and bought

The summer issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited is now available! It’s chocked full of Electric Quilt goodies, designers and information! Patio by Jennifer Schifano Thomas of Curlicue Creations is included. The quilt is so cute! She designed it in EQ7. Jennifer says, “My design process usually starts the old fashioned way, with pencil and paper. After that, I take it to the EQ design program and that’s where my ideas really bloom! Patio started out as just some simple blocks with yellow rectangles. It was ALL yellow in the beginning. I changed the block design, until I was happy with that (I especially like the look this quilt has where the corners of the blocks come together). Then I got to do my favorite part, play with the color! As a child I always wanted to have “all the colors”. All the crayons, all the magic markers, all the paint,

Kimmy Brunner at has been chosen to make raffle quilt for the International Quilt Festival in Houston. Kimmy says her first thought was “Oh my gosh, I have got to make this quilt a showstopper! and the first tool I turned to was EQ7.  The software has allowed me to draft a difficult and elaborate pattern that I think will turn out very well indeed. Thank you so much for making this tool available to me!” You can read more about her quilt making here and here and watch her blog for more updates, too! Kimmie continues on her blog, “I have found [EQ7] to be utterly invaluable when creating quilts that are out of the ordinary.
