EQ7 Beginners Patchwork

Learn how to use this powerful software to make exciting quilts using pieced blocks. EQ7 is a complex set of programs especially designed for quilters that can revolutionise how you design and make quilts. Shirley will guide you through the process of selecting and changing blocks, auditioning fabric and color choices, deciding on borders and layouts, and bringing all these together to create templates to make your quilts. All the instructions are accompanied by colored screen shots and videos of what to do, so that you can see exactly what is happening and follow along easily.
