Quilting with Your Computer
Electric Quilt 8 (EQ8)
On Monday, July 16, Maggie Tinnen will talk about how Electric Quilt 8 (EQ8) can make designing quilts fun, efficient and flexible. Maggie has been quilting since 2004. Since retiring in 2012 Maggie has devoted her time to her passion for sewing, quilting and Electric Quilt. Although she has no affiliation with the Electric Quilt Company, she is an avid user. She is self-taught (finding the traditional books on the programs unhelpful) starting with EQ6, and has devoted many hours to the program.
During this class on July 17, we will design three quilts using the “Library Tools” and we will draw each type of block listed below using the tools appropriate to each block. As we work, we will utilize the Library, and the “Print” tools. Should we have time at the end of the class, we will design additional quilts, including a “Custom Set” quilt. Bring your computer with EQ8 installed.
