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

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

I just pulled up the Electric quilt Company.com you can request a free catalogue.. EQ5 isn't advertised anymore. The Town/Country I took out to try from our huge guild library like the program, it is a folder size ltd patterns and mostly houses. It is great if you like creating your own scenery lots of paper piecing. Qlt design wizard another folder type same with Angle play, keep in mind that if money is an issue for you, much of these drawings can be done with simple program that comes with your computer corel draw or paint program. Of course having a book to follow or better yet an instructor is great. I would assume that their are you tube tutorial if look through search engine. But all I all the basic idea is to make time to read one page a week.. You will quickly get addicted.

those who have interest for EQ programs, note you can add for lesser price Angle Play Blocks which are loads of intermediate blocks with a more modern twist by Margaret J. Miller. Bassically, it is a rectangle sliced/cut in various ways to form a block.. It comes in an 8 1/2 X 11 size folder with a CD.. 300 extra blocks to keep you busy..

Basically, EQ is just pacing yourself to read 2-4pages a week. I know easier to show how.. I went through that brain lock for awhile, until I managed to get brain connected to hands on.. Then, it got easier..

Hi Lea,  I am close to Winnipeg.  I live outside of Kenora and am in Wpg a fair bit.  Is EQ 5 very different from EQ 6.  I have EQ 6.  I would love to have the opportunity to pick your brain.  I have tried the book and it is just not clicking.  Friend me and then we can talk in private.  Thanks...gracia
