Annie I did paper piecing  .I had to tape up my patterns as they were 10in, but once i did that it worked great.

 I would love it if they gave cutting instructions using HST or QSTs

You get those IF your shape is not irregular.

I'm using EQ for my blocks not the actual BB program.

And there lies my problem.  I am making each block 8" and I can't get any regular cutting instructions, so I guess I'll finish it off using PP technique.  But I really want to master the template issue and get to the bottom of why the pieced blocks are coming out so wonky.

Spud,

I have Block Base but I linked the BB library to my EQ library so I don't have to use the BB program. I do this for any EQ compatible software.

I find the BB awkward to use so also use it within EQ7 which seems to be much more flexible and user friendly than their stand alone add-on's such as Block Base and My EQ Boutique (which I also have). I may be overly suspicious but can't help but wonder if EQ does this deliberately to "encourage" people to buy the pricey full EQ7?

But I could be wrong......


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Judy,

I think you're right. These add-ons aren't as versatile as EQ so maybe they provide some incentive when people want to do more.

I have EQ Boutique as well but I've only purchased one or two patterns.
