Patricia's Patches Quilted 1

First thing I learned is that as it is harder to draw applique in EQ6, which means the applique designs don’t work quite as well as quilting lines … I may have the patience of a quilter but I don’t have enough patience to redraw applique blocks to the accuracy I am used to in EQ7 without the precision tools in EQ7.

Setting up the layout in EQ6 isn’t quite as bad as I remembered, but back then I was under the impression that I couldn’t save quilt layouts including Layers 1, 2 and 3 in My Layout Library … but because I had discovered it worked in EQ7 I tried it in EQ6 … and it works here too!

I suspect that had I found that out before the EQ7 update became available I would have done more virtual quilting a long time ago.

    Yes you definitely would have done more quilting designs then as well. Curious as to why you have gone back to EQ6?

    • Cindy,

      I am glad that I could save to quilting layer and add it to new projects files, and had to try it in EQ6 … was delighted and a bit disappointed that I didn’t work it out sooner.

      The reason I went back to EQ6 … I lost access to EQ7 due to upgrading to Windows 10 without first deactivating EQ7 … followed by security working all too well! EQ7 is now accessible again, but I have learned a few things I had forgotten about EQ6. It really was a good program … just lacking the precision drawing tools I love in EQ7.

    When I upgraded to EQ7 I think the EQ6 was written over. I don’t see in on the computer anymore and I don’t remember deleting it. Actually maybe it was EQstitch which has EQ7 in it. I don’t think I could go back as I would miss the added tools too much.

    • Cindy,

      I wouldn’t want to go back permanently! I should go back occasionally as I sometimes get asked questions about EQ6 by people who haven’t upgraded.

      If I wasn’t a quilter at heart I could possibly live without the precision tools if I didn’t know they existed.
