There is another EQ Yahoo group
[http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EQ7_Users_Only/?yguid=421790342] and the
moderator there periodically offers lessons. I am in the Spring lessons
group, which is closed to new members because we are in our 3rd week
now. There will be 11 weeks of lessons, 2 lessons posted each week.
She will be offering others and also posts some weekly lessons which are
open to all members.
I now have EQ Stitch and belong to several EQ groups as I am trying to
learn as much as I can about this program. Already learned a bunch of
things I would never have delved into on my own.

It is an applique block and I have drafted it but would like to set it on a larger background without changing it's size. I will post a picture of what I have so far in the pictures file. A picture of a finished quilt using this block can be seen at:

No matter how I attempt to draft this the pieces don't seem to come out exactly perfect. Any help you can provide will be most appreciated. Thanks, Ann
