      Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Ann and I live in Eastern TN.
      I am 61 years old with 10 grandchildren that live out of state. My DH is a retired law enforcement officer. I have used EQ to design several quilts and also a tile pattern for our bath room floor in the last house.
      I am not new to EQ but new to EQ7. Mostly I have just designed blocks and quilts and have never really needed to print out directions. I have a quilt project in EQ7 at the moment that I would like to print out and have the piecing diagrams etc. printed. Just not sure how to accomplish that. Seems that I did a project years ago but don't remember how to do it. Can someone direct me or refer me to a website or lesson with a tutorial? Thanks, Ann in TN

        Ann,
        Hello from Suburban Milwaukee, WI. Former police officer here too. If you have the quilt on the quilt worktable, you can take the arrow (top left pick tool) and select a block. That should give you print (or preview first) block. I usually paper piece, but Rotary Instructions also come up. I think this is what you want. Or try the "help" by search. It is REALLY good.

        I wonder if you know the names of your blocks if you can find assembly instructions online. EQ only gives rotary cutting diagrams though. Just a thought. Susan

            The block I am doing is a rail fence. It is simple to construct however I am using 8 different fabrics and it is the placement of the fabrics and the transition of colors from one block to the next that I would like to be able to print out. I have scanned in the fabric I am using and would like to be able to print the fabrics and the individual block assembly so I know how many strips of each fabric I will need and how many of each individual block with the same color combination I need. Don't know if that information is automatically generated or if I have to type out instructions for myself.

              Hi!

              Although I joined a long time ago my old computer just did not have enough
              memory to do much. I have a new HP Pavillion running Windows 7 Professional
              64 bit. I upgraded to EQ7 without a problem. But, I cannot get STASH to
              install. The setup.exe even on the most current Spring 2011 will not
              install the Stash program itself.

              I've been in contact with tech support from EQ for a couple days. Penny has
              tried several different things with me to get it to install. The
              compatibility program says that the problem is the setup file. I've loaded
              several of my older programs without a problem so this is a real stumper.
              We've checked anti-virus and all else that might stop the setup.exe file
              from executing. We are at a loss. Penny has really tried to help me.

              Has anyone else experienced the setup.exe file not executing for STASH? I
              really liked the program and have all the Stash discs back to 1999.

              Thanks,

              PS I installed STASH on a Windows Vista Home Premium about 3 years ago
              without a problem.

                If you are scanning your fabrics, and then use them to color the blocks in the quilts, you should be able to print - quilt - showing fabrics and that should give you the whole quilt, all blocks and colors. You could blow this up to make it bigger, or print - block - showing fabrics, one at a time. Either way. Good luck

                  in cyber space. And as of a couple days ago my problem was solved with the
                  help of EQ tech support. The problem was mine. One of my other programs was
                  preventing the install.
