I've seen ads etc for computer programs which can be used to design quilt blocks and quilts. Has anybody used them? Do they help? Or are they more trouble than they're worth?

I have EQ6 and I love it. I plan all my quilts out first so I don't waste time and fabric and then print out my pattern pieces and piecing diagrams, so I am definitely for it... You can upload your own fabrics too to see if they go well with your designs. It has a vast library of blocks or you can design your own.
On page 3 of this forum, Kim's discussion...to buy or not to buy EQ6 might help. it is under the title Electric Quilt 6 and you may be able to do a search for it to be quicker.
Hope this helps...

Thanks for the link to Kim's discussion Marion. I have been thinking about EQ6 although it won't work on my Mac. I had to buy a PC laptop for my embroidery machine software so it should work on that. I am going to have a chat with Lawrence at Rio Designs over the FPQ weekend as he is really helpful.
By The way, a message for Lady H - my terramundi pot is financing all my spending at the show this year, second one I have smashed so far!

Your welcome Maggi
I bought my EQ6 from Lawrence at Rio Designs too and they were really helpful. I paid there and then, and received it within 24 hours I think...it was very quick anyway...and to me, it was money well spent..
