Tablerunners in EQ - help needed

Started by Kay Ahr. Last reply by Kay Ahr Feb 15, 2016. 19 Replies

I tried designing a tablerunner in EQ, but I couldn't figure out how to get the points on the end.  I finally just created another block on each end as a work-around.  What should I have done? Here's…Continue

Welcome to all of you.

I agree, the manual is a great asset for EQ. I worked through the basics last year when I was trying to design a quilt for my local group's opportunity quilt. But I also know I have forgotten many of the things I learned then and have to refer back to the manual when I go into the program now.

Kate, I too have Quilt Pro as the first program I learned, and sometimes default to that if all I need to know is how many blocks I need to make a quilt a certain size. Do not know if I can do that in EQ without having actual blocks in use.

I keep reading that if you know EQ6 you should have no trouble learning EQ7. Guess that means I need to spend some time relearning 6.

I think the instructions manuals are one of the great things about EQ. When I got each version I worked through each lesson. Best computer directions I have ever tried. I don't remember how to do everything but it makes it easy to look up step by step directions.
I love using EQ to play with quilt ideas.

Thanx to Cat Lady for letting us know about this group. I didnt know about the old group.

I have EQ6, but haven't really learned it yet. I haven't had the patience to follow the manual. I'm an old Quilt Pro user and tend to default to it because when I have an idea, I don't want to pull out the EQ manual. I'll have to look at the EQ7 to see if it's worth doing the upgard. Cat Lady thank you for sponsoring a new EQ group.

I just got my EQ6 a month ago and now EQ7 is coming out. I think I will finish learning how to use EQ6 first. Has anyone have trouble learning how to use it? I have to review things before moving on. B-(

Glad you reinstated this group. Just checked out the EQ7 on the web site and it looks awesome. I have had it since EQ5 and really enjoy it, but need to spend a lot more time really getting the details down. Still I suspect I will be upgrading as I love some of the new features especially working with photos and color.

Glad to see you got EQ started again Cat Lady. Never joined the last group, but have joined in this time. I have had EQ since they first started, and have not done as much lately as I should.

Teresa, check out the EQ web page, as it gives us an idea what the new version will be able to do. And if all you need to do is an upgrade off of 6, the cost is really not that bad.

And Welcome to the group.

I really enjoy EQ! I started with EQ4 then EQ5, then EQ6.... I'll have to think about getting EQ7!
