Your favorite designer patterns will soon be found at ElectricQuilt.com! EQ7 users love add-on libraries. Now find them all in one place! Here are a few notes about the upcoming move. Purchases will no longer be available at MyEQBoutique.com beginning on August 1. All designer patterns will be available as EQ7 add-on downloads, hopefully by the end of August. All downloads are available for PC and Mac. All downloads will install directly into your EQ7 Block Library for immediate use in EQ7. Any supplemental PDFs will install into your My EQ7 folder. Any purchases made prior to August 1, 2014, will still be available to you on ElectricQuilt.com.

Block designs do not need to be square. The block design can be an original drawing, or a block from the Block Library that you’ve colored your own way using

Reeze Hanson, EQ7 teacher, inspires you to dust off your EQ7 (or go out and buy one!!) and get designing.

The Canadian Quilterhas written a great multi-part series, making a Mystery Quilt with EQ7. The first installment talks about fabrics – including importing your own fabrics, downloading them from manufacturers websites (Northcott has a button right on their site!) and installing our free fabric downloads, amongst other things. Lots of nice reviews and comments from EQ users too! We always love seeing that! Lots of good information too. Be sure to check it out!
