Electric Quilt 8 Basic Design


An AQG 2022 Quilt Show Education Event. 

Want to design your own quilts but hate graph paper?  Tired of finding patterns you like but the quilt size is wrong? Want to know what fabrics look like in a pa ttern?  Did you know there is a computer program, Electric Quilt 8 (EQ8)  to help you solve these problems?  If you already own EQ8 but have been afraid to use it or wonder about a tool to make your quilt design easier - this is the class for you.

We will explore basic quilt and block design using EQ8.  Let EQ8 do the math.  The program can give you cutting instructions, applique patterns, paper piece templates,  fabric requirements and more.  If you already own EQ8, bring your laptop with EQ8 installed, otherwise bring a laptop and we can install a student version than can be used in class.  Follow along as we use the built-in libraries and drawing tools to design your own quilt
