Beautiful quilts.The more I see the more I want to learn.

11 Tanya 04.30.09 at 8:50 am

I have been enjoying all of your youcan sites. When I finish this semester at school I plan on catching up on all the patterns I have purchased. CANT WAIT!!
Keep up the good work..

12 Brooke Granger 04.30.09 at 9:14 am

This sofware would be sooo helpful. I just started quilting and love it but I am terrible at math and trying to take my imagined quilt and put it on paper so this sofware is perfect. I am such a visual person so the idea of being able to see how the quilt will look and tweaking it before going through all the work is very appealing to any quilter.

I love this new newsletter and website – so much interesting information! I have used EQ5 on a friend’s computer – it is amazing, so I am sure EQ6 is even more so! Keep up the good work! Now I’m off to find some fabric to make the “wish board” for two of the young girls in my church whom I have “adopted” to encourage. Thanks!

I am a beginner quilter, if you call it that and would love to have the EQ to make designing easier. I have done one quilt for my daughter and have a son and 3 grandchildren I want to make for. I love the website for you can quilt this and you can make this.

40 Margaret 05.08.09 at 8:57 am

This site and the e-mails are just full of information and ideas that can be helpful to all quilters–new or experienced. There is always something new to learn and keep improving our skills. The EQ6 would certainly be a great addition to our “quilting tools”. It is nice to see the sharing notes from others. Margaret

41 Mary Myers 05.08.09 at 6:31 pm

Love theweb site. Lots of good information. Would really like the E6 Quilter program. My friend has one amd she brags about it allthe time

I love thiswebsite to jumpstart my creative juices! I love EQ5 for the same reason! I would LOVE toplay with the new EQ6 also! My only problem is that when I play at the computer…I loose track of time! More and more options and ideas just keep coming into reality and before I know it…I have been there for hours! At least I am not nibbling on food then! I will be twittering this today to encourage others to enter…or should I?(Haha) Great website offering great products—keep up the good work!
