New to EQ5
My name is Sandy and I live in Southern Illinois. I am
married, and have two grown children, a daughter that turned 30
yesterday, and a son, who is 27.
I purchased EQ5 last week. I can see that it is going to be a
wonderful program. Presently, I am using it to print patterns out
the size that I want. I am working on a sampler quilt. I have 7
blocks completed. I am piecing them by hand. I also love needleturn
applique. I have been making quilts for about 12 years. However, I
haven't made one in a couple of years. I decided it was time to get
started. I believe that the EQ5 program is going to make this hobby
much more enjoyable for me. I am thinking about purchasing another
EQ5 program, but haven't made my mind up yet on which one it's gonna
I'm very happy that I have found this group.

I would highly recommend you start with "BlockBase 2".
This is a computer version of Barbara Brackman's "Encyclopedia of Pieced
Quilt Patterns" book. The program has 4000 blocks in it.
This will bring your block library up to 9000 blocks with EQ5's 3000
blocks. Way Cool!!!!
BB2 can be linked to EQ5 so you can access the blocks and create quilts.
BB2 has history of all the blocks and like the blocks in EQ5 you can print
out templates, foundation piecing and rotary cutting instructions. BB2 also
allows you to print out a commercial template listing for Marti Michell's
