    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.

  2. 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 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.

    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 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.
