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”.

My goodness. I had no idea this could be done with EQ. Thank you Claira for sharing your technique. am definitely intrigued at the possibilities. Ps I would buy your pattern in a heartbeat.
I just love it!! I’m making a quilt with a truck too. It’s called Old Yellow!!
Love it!! This is just what I am looking to do
I really like the choice of truck and the colors are fantastic! What a great job.
Love this truck we have a 1935 ford P/U very similar to what you have quilted, would like to do one but still learning and not much time to spare. Great job!!!
I really like your quilt. So true to life.
This motivates me to try tracing some of my photos. Thanks for posting!
Nicely done, I’m impressed!

I imported into EQ6 (Block>Import Image for Tracing) a photo I had taken of the truck and traced all of my applique pieces. I assembled all of my fusible pieces on pattern tracing material and stitched my raw edges and added the decorative stitching. I cut away the excess pattern tracing material and sewed the truck to the background quilt which I had made separately.
I’m glad you like the design! Thank you!
You did a terrific job with the perspective, beautiful work. I think that you should do it again, but parked in front of a General Store. That would be super awsome!
How do you do this? This looks awesome!
Thank you! Did my response to Debra provide you with enough information?
