A stack of scrappy red and white 4-patches needed a home. The reds when into the main blocks and the oranges and golds went into the sashing. EQ8 was very helpful in laying out the design and borders to get the queen size that I wanted.
How to export an image of your virtual quilt from EQ
With your quilt displayed on the Quilt Worktable:
Click FILE > Export Image. The Export Image dialog displays.
In this dialog you’ll select the folder location for saving the file, give the file a name. You should name your photo file using this sequence: First letter of your first name, your full last name, underscore, EQQuilt. For example Jane Doe would name her quilt, “JDoe_EQQuilt”.
Click the down-pointing arrow for file type selections. Files can be saved jpeg.
The next dialog lets you specify the size of the image and other options depending on the file type that has been selected. You should choose 150 dpi and a width of 8”.
When taking a photo of your finished quilt, you should follow these guidelines or we may not be able to display your quilt in the gallery.
The quilt must be hanging vertically straight.
Take the photo straight on (the quilt should not be on an angle).
The image file should be larger than 600 pixels. If you send us the original photo without any editing, that file should suffice.
Do not crop out the background.
Do not cut off the borders or binding in the picture.
You should name your photo file using this sequence: First letter of your first name, your full last name, underscore, FinishedQuilt. For example Jane Doe would name her quilt, “JDoe_FinishedQuilt”.
