Electric Quilt

25 Jun

Has anyone used Electric Quilt before?

I’m just curios as to what people have to say about it. I personally have never used it, but I do know someone who has it and raves about it. She told me that if I was ever going to be interested in selling quilt block patters (which I am), that I would need to get it. I know it would be a great upgrade from the way I currently design quilts. Currently I use paint and a grid pattern, so almost anything would be an upgrade. I suppose as my quilting gets more complex the graph paper just won’t cut it anymore.

So, that is the question I have to pose to the internet nation: What do you think of Electric Quilt?

Also: What generation would give me the most ‘bang for my buck’.

Thanks in advance!

    I have EQ7 but EQ6 is just as nice and you won’t regret buying the software. The Electric Quilt Company has some great books for learning as well so you won’t be stuck. Everything is well thought out and easy to use in the books and they are reasonably priced.

    I have EQ but still grab my graph paper & pencil for most of my designing “thinking”.
    I find that EQ “thinks” in traditional lines & doing some of your off-kilter diagonals would be difficult to capture.
