It's time to start designing your next quilt using this beginner-friendly
quilt design software.
EQ Mini includes the basic features of the full-featured Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7) software, at a "test drive" price.
Note: If you already own EQ7 software, you do not need this product.
What is EQ Mini?
EQ Mini is designed for quilters who are just getting started using
software for quilting.
It delivers powerful yet easy-to-use options that help you create, edit, share, and print patterns and yardage for your quilt designs.
This software is a scaled-down, simpler version of EQ7, with fewer features,
functions, and options.
It offers a "mini" version of the full program, yet with endless possibilities.
EQ Mini includes a block library of 300 pieced and appliqué
blocks to be set in any of the 4 layout styles.
Each layout style (horizontal, on-point, horizontal strip and vertical strip) can be edited to create as many unique quilts as you wish.
A fabric library of over 3,500 scanned fabrics will make your design come to life so you can really visualize your quilt before cutting your first piece of fabric.
EQ Mini's step-by-step tabs guide you through the design process. Jump back and forth among the tabs to make edits to your design at any time.
The Start New Quilt tab offers great visuals to get you started with
your design. Also, you are not limited to the options shown.
You can edit any of these layouts on the Adjust Layout tab to make your own design.
Add more blocks, change the block sizes and proportions, add or remove sashing - it's totally up to you!
There are 8 borders styles on the Edit Borders tab available
for every quilt. Add as many borders as you'd like - even a binding!
Drop blocks and fabrics into the borders (and into any sashing or cornerstones) to give your design a more exciting look.
All border styles can be edited to make them your own
The Design Quilt tab offers many design tools. Gather blocks and fabrics
from the libraries and set them into your design with a click of the mouse.
Or - drag and drop a block or fabric onto the quilt! The block and fabric libraries an be accessed directly from the design palettes to make your design process more efficient
