Fun With EQ6

I went into work late today so that I could go to a class on EQ6.  Mill House Quilts in Waunakee, Wisconsin, offers some free classes that meet on a monthly basis.  I have been going to the piecing one for years -- I really look forward to show and tell to see what the members of the group are doing.  They've offered the EQ6 class for a while and I know both of the women who teach it, but I haven't had the time to go.  

Today, I made the time and I am so glad.  In an hour with Fran, I learned more than I had in three years of dabbling around in the tutorials that come with the program.  And I had fun.  We did the pinwheel border around this block, but I was empowered and put the hearts in the middle to finish it out.

I am not ignorant about computers -- I used to work for a software company in the quality assurance (SQA) division and I tested graphics programs.  But EQ6 has confounded me since day one.  Today I was informed that it is not me, but EQ6 -- because it doesn't work like any other graphics program.  What a relief!  I am so happy to know that I am not old and stupid.  It's the program!  Phew.

glad to hear it's not you or me. The program confounds me too. Maybe I need to take a class.
