Product Description

Electric Quilt 6 is a very powerful, highly versatile computer program for creating, editing, coloring, saving, and printing original and traditional quilt patterns. There are very significant improvements over EQ5, so if you have Windows XP or Vista and if you can afford it, we encourage you to order EQ6. System requirements: Microsoft Windows XP or higher, CD-ROM drive. Pages for Circular Styles, Sweetheart Designs, Sashing Strips, Borders & Blocks, Fun Patterns, Continuous Lines, Elegant Sets and Grids VI. Easy to use and saves hundreds of dollars over purchasing quilt patterns individually. This is a VERY powerful and easy to use program, but if you don't have Windows XP or higher, or if you don't have plenty of memory, you should purchase EQ5 , which will not overtax your computer. Contains two CD-ROMs

Electric Quilt 6 upgrade only works if you have the previous version installed. If you do not, you need to purchase the full version not the upgrade.

EQ6 makes if fast and easy to create blocks and add them to your library. I particularly like the help videos they have included. They have expanded the paper-pieced library to include some cute & fun items such as vegies, beach scenes and more animals. With the expanded fabric library its easier now more than ever to make your quilts look just right.

EQ6 is an essential quilters tool. My one peeve with it is that they do not offer downloadable expansions from their website, and creating layouts is still a little awkward.

I had a hard time with this program at first because it didn't have the Adobe software interface I'm familiar with (Illustrator, etc.). It has its own rules for rotating, copying, etc.

2 days go I embarked on creating a Storm at Sea quilt from a picture that I liked. In the process, I really learned how EQ works. My conclusion: It's a great quilt design playpen. It moved me to write this review.

Within the program there are tutorial videos and there are more on the EQ website, and on youtube. I'm a visual learner. Once I see it, I get it. Then if I need more details the manual makes sense to me.

The quick design changes I was able to make would have taken ages in Illustrator. The program goes much deeper than I initially thought.

Today I imported pictures of appliques I liked, then traced over them (the bezier tools are more intuitive than Illustrator) and created my own applique blocks. Then saved them to an applique block library I created.

So if you're intimidated, well, so was I, but once you dig in, it's really fun and opens up a world of possibilities. I would have given it 4 stars, because the interface is slightly clunky compared to design software. But what it does, it does so very well. Ya just gotta make friends with it.

I'm having so much fun with this program. It's tutorial and book make it very easy to learn. As a matter of fact, my 6 year old has been designing quilts with it. It's a program that will grow with me as the complexity of my projects increase.

I have had so much fun using this software it's almost a pity to leave off and actually go and make the quilt!

The handbook is so well written and easy to follow that I had no problems with extending the tutorials to play with my own ideas and I've been able to play around with far more options than I would have tried with pencil and paper.

I love the speed in which I can change colour, change fabrics, rotate blocks and add different borders. Fantastic! I dare anyone to find a better way to design a quilt.

I know many others like this program, I for one feel it is not user friendly. It is not easy to begin with, and the manual does not support the users ability to look up and find a specific item they need to address. The lessons are structured in a step by step process that does not allow the user to interpolate onto their specific need. There are a total of 4 only 4 activations on different computers, which means over the life of the program that if you upgrade computers frequently, you will be paying for additional activations EVEN if you experience a computer crash. Their yahoo group doesn't seem to be helpful at all, and I do realize that it is not a part of the EQ network. Even activation initially was a hassle. Wish I had kept my money and found something else.

I have been reading the enclosed manual, taking the lessons, and reviewing the program. Since I'm new to doing quilts it has been a good experience for me. I'm enjoying all part thus far. I find the only draw back to this product is the limited 4 downloads other than that I haven't gone far enough into it to see if there are other things I wouldn't like. All in all I can say it is a good purchase for learners.

Had to take a few notes at first to learn the ins and outs of the software, but you really can do just about anything with it that you can think up. It works with Word software very well and does even more. Very pleased. Lessons in the manual very easy and a useful quick way to learn.

I am enjoying using this software but I have found a couple of bugs in it. no big deal yet. the main use I want it for is to predesign my quilts. I am a novice to quilting. I have been working through the lessons. Great tutorial and videos. Well done and well worth the money!
