Well, I am so excited. Last week I purchased my EQ7. It was a birthday gift from my DH for my birthday. I should be getting it tomorrow (hopefully). I am so looking forward to it. I hope it helps when I do the next round robin. After I get it a play with it, I will let you all know how I like it. I plan on getting some of the extras to go with it. I know there is a group for EQ7 and I joined it but I wanted everyone to know how excited I am about my new toy.

Melissa,
Maybe now would be a good time for me to go through my tutorial lessons. Want to do them together? Just a thought. I might stay with it better if I had a partner I could bounce questions off of. Purely selfish but I might be able to help you too. What do you think?

Roxana, I think that would be great. It is 3:00 pm and I still don't have it. I am so looking forward to it. Yes I did join the EQ7 group but I didn't look at the pages. Thanks for the info. I will let you know how the unveiling goes.

Hi Roxana

I played with it for a couple of hours yesterday but I didn't get to play on much today as I have a great niece that graduated today. I left at 9:30 this morning and got back around 7 this evening. It's about a 2 1/2 hour drive one way. I am so tired I will just spend tomorrow playing with it. I used to work for a computer company but I tested the chips before they were assembled. That doesn't mean I know the first thing about running programs. It's funny, everyone thinks I should know everything about computers. Now my daughter is a programmer so she does know all there is to know about computers. She works so much though that she doesn't have much time to help me. Anyway, my point is, I need to play with a program and read as much as I can to learn about it to be able to use it. Once I get ink for my printer, I plan on printing out the lessons and start working on them. Have you done these lessons yet?

I have EQ5, but would like to get 7 someday.  I found doing the lessons extremely helpful.

I got EQ7 before I got sick, one of these days I will have to go through the lessons again. I did a few things with it and it was fun. There are a few here who use it and are very helpful. Enjoy your new toy...

I have EQ7 and I love it, but there is a big learning curve.  It's very powerful software, so there are lots of parts to learn before you can do any one thing successfully.  Don't wait until you have a project with a deadline to start learning!  That's my only advice.  Otherwise, enjoy your new toy.  :)

I am borrowing Barbara's EQ7.  It's a LOT of fun to play around.  I'm sure that there is much more flexibility than I have found with my little puttering.  But I'm sooo not good about tutorials or watching lessons.  I need to be hands on to figure things out.  I am currently working on a quilt that I designed completely on it.  We'll see how it turns out.

I also did your border, Carolyn!

I am currently going through the lessons and found that if you go through them and follow what they say step by step, it gives you the hands on. I learn quicker by doing it myself so that works for me. I am looking forward to doing my own quilt from design to finish. You all give me so much encouragement. Thank you!

I'm still trying to work my way through QuiltPro 6.  I just downloaded it so I don't have a manual to refer to when I need it.  There's probably something in my download but I haven't taken the time to find it yet.  Hope your EQ7 treats you well.

Karla, I've had Quilt Pro 6 for a few years and learned most from the Help section. It would be nice if they published an instruction book for these programs!  If there's anything I can assist with, let me know. I'm certainly not an expert but I might be able to help. Good luck--- it's a great program!

Carol, I'll remember that you are available to help.  I've been using the "help" section, too.
