Judy,

I expect they'll have it again soon since it was just re-released. It a great investment no matter the price.

Yea, I just ordered one also. Just what I need, something else to keep m at my computer and/or sewing machine. LOL.  Luckily they are side by side and I couldn't do without either one!

WEll Just had my first class. She gave us lots of good information and some new ideas to work on.  ,but not really a lot of things that I was not already aware of . but this is just the first class and she is going over a lot of stuff. She did show some new techniques,which I'm going to try as this is part of my homework ,which should keep me busy for the next couple of days.  All in all I'm pleased with the class so far. and can't wait to learn the things to make a whole cloth quilt. Of course I'm not allowed to share any of the classwork  infomation as this is copywrite issues..Barbara

 

Judy, Just think how much fun we can have after I get my EQ classes in and we can start playing with all of this ..LOL  I'm looking foward to it . Barbara

Did you have trouble understanding the Bonus section? Specifically the Kaleidoscope. It wasn't until I went on to Lesson 2 that I was able to do that block.

Before I do the 2nd class in this series, in October, I plan to go back and do all four of these lessons again, from scratch, just to refresh and reinforce what I've learned. My brain forgets so quickly as I tend to skim through things and then need to repeat until it lodges in permanently!  Although I've been using EQ7 for awhile I did get quite a bit out of this first class. One more lesson to go and it opens up in about 10 minutes.

Barbara, I have been sending in three pictures after each class. They then post them on the website. I'm so glad that you and others are doing the classes also.

Hi Judy and Barbara and anyone else who is considering  the BlockBase software,

Kris is right, this is a re-issue, not a new version, but if you haven't checked it out, be sure to do so.  It's great just to look at the blocks Barbara Brackman has compiled, some of which date back to the early 1800s.  I'd suggest you consider buying Barbara Brackman's book, I believe it's called "Encyclopedia of Pieced Patterns" as a companion to the program, for those times you aren't sitting in front of your computer and want to "play" quilt.

It's Quilting! You're supposed to be having fun!

MizPat:
"Encyclopedia of Pieced Patterns"

this book is no longer and print and will not be reissued according to Barbara Brackman. One of the reasons the software has been re-released.

She was on American Patchwork and Quilting's radio show earlier this week.
