About 16 months ago, I bought a copy of EQ7. It has sat unused on my computer ever since. I have spent a few hours playing with the program over the past two days. I haven't the patience to start learning to use the software from the beginning, so just jumped in with both feet and had a go at designing a 92 inch quilt and a 16 inch cushion cover. I've had a lot of fun and the best part is playing around with different colourways. It's like having a great big 'Pick and Mix'. I expect I've created every quilting faux pas in the book...but ignorance is bliss! I realise I am just scratching the surface with this program, and I have an enormous amount still to learn. I want to teach myself how to draw applique blocks next!

I have started piecing the cushion design above in reproduction fabrics. I can never have enough cushion covers!
