EQ7 - The Next Step

Now that you have a working knowledge of EQ7, let Shirley show you how to fully utilize the powerful drawing tools to create complex pieced and appliqué blocks, motifs and stencils. You will learn how to edit, resize, rotate, clone, partition and flip your designs. Shirley will also show you how to create quilt designs that combine both pieced and appliqué blocks and you will learn how to experiment with EQ7‘s wide range of printing options, design custom layouts and work with the exciting new Serendipity feature. This workshop follows on from EQ7 Beginners’ Patchwork, and is the second in the EQ series. It is recommended that you have completed the Beginners’ workshop before undertaking this one. By the end of this class, you should feel confident to make any type of pieced or appliqué block, and be comfortable with all the drawing and printing tools.
