Family Tree Quilt in Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine

Posted 01-29-2014 by | Posted in: Downloads EQ News and Press

In the Winter 2014 issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited I have an article about making a modern family tree quilt, using EQ7, of course. I drew all the blocks, I scanned in photos of my family and put them all in the quilt. The article also talks about editing photos right in EQ7, drawing silhouettes, importing fabrics and much more. There is a Web Extra that explains, step-by-step on Modern Quilt’s Unlimited site on how to make this quilt here. You can also download the EQ7 project. It does accompany the article though, so be sure to get the magazine!

Details About EQ7 for Mac

When Will the Mac Version of EQ7 Be Released? We had hoped to be ready to release a Mac version of EQ7 in January. We are continuing to work on the program and will keep you advised as to our progress. Downloadable Software for Purchase Since many of the computers on the market now are being manufactured without CD/DVD drives, both PC and Mac, we knew this was something we would need to develop before we released EQ7 for Mac. We have started to incorporate the ability to download software from our website. We released our first downloadable software for purchase in December. Read more about EQ Stash Online! Accommodating Our Existing Users The development of the Mac version was intended for a “new” audience of quilters. But, we have a large user-base of EQ7 users who run the Windows version of EQ7 on their Macs via Parallels or some

Quilting Resolutions: 2014 Edition

Posted 12-30-2013 by | Posted in: EQ News and Press EQ Software Tips

2014 is almost upon us! Last year at this time I posted about Quilting Resolutions. The focus of that post was using EQ to help you finish up UFOs that may be laying around your sewing room. You could have quilt tops that need borders, or you completed a block of the month for 2013 and now you have no idea what to do with all those finished blocks! This post shows you how to use photos of those sewn elements to design with in EQ7. Maybe your goal for 2014 is a bit more broad and you’d just like to use your EQ7 more. We’ve got plenty of resources to help you learn! Click here to check out the Lessons section on Do You EQ. You’ll find free lessons on a wide variety of topics. You can still access all the sew along lessons for the EQ7 Summer Drawing
