I am so honored to be the host of EQ Mini Friday Fun with Lori. This is a blog series devoted to sharing, teaching, and providing information the new scaled down, simpler version of EQ7 quilt design software. This program was created for quilters who are just getting started using software for quilt design. EQ Mini will help you create, edit, share, and print patterns and yardage for your quilt designs. EQ Mini was created by The Electric Quilt Company. You can find my Friday Fun on the DoYouEQ.com blog.
I was introduced to EQ Mini when I volunteered to beta test the software before it was released. I was so impressed with the easy flow and friendly beginner aspects of the software. I love the colored step by step tabs that let you easily work to create and edit a design. And even though it is a Mini version of the Electric Quilt 7 software, it is still robust enough to offer a ton of design possibilities. It contains a block library of 300 pieced and appliqué blocks that can be set in 4 layout styles, there are 8 different border styles and a fabric library of over 3500 scanned fabrics to use to make your designs exactly how you want them. There are a slew of add on blocks you can purchase as well as fabric stash libraries to add even more options for your software.
Each month I will share tips and techniques, tutorials, design project skill builders, and maybe even a little show and tell of what I am working on in my studio. Head on over to doyoueq.com for My helpful EQ Mini designs posts, then come back here. I will share take those designs and share tutorials to help you transform the design into beautiful stitched projects.
