Coloring Quilts and Blocks
Over 5000 scanned fabrics are included. Scan your own fabrics, then crop and “tweak” them right in EQ7. Save them and “notecard” them in your own My Library to use and re-use. EQ7 scales the fabrics for you — no matter what size your quilt or block — so what you see in EQ7 is what you’ll get in your finished quilt.
Color tools let you play “what if” before you cut fabric. You can even let the computer choose colors for you with the Random Recolor tool. Rotate your fabric at any angle you choose, using the Rotate Fabric tool to create special effects with even the simplest stripes.
Quilts can be as simple, or as complex-looking as you like. EQ7 can help whether you want to make a horizontal quilt with plain squares, or an intricate custom quilt with blocks of all different sizes. Choose from any of our 10 automatic layouts, over 540 pre-designed layouts by size & by style, popular quick-quilts, or draw your own layout. The possibilities are endless.
EQ7 includes over 5,000 copyright-free blocks.Use these blocks, change them a bit, or design your own. Use and re-use blocks as patterns or quilting stencils. Choose any size. Or use EQ7’s new Serendipity tools to magically turn any block into a new original block.
Borders & Sashing
Adding borders is now the fun part of designing a quilt! Choose from over 290 pre-designed Auto Borders, or create your own. Have as many borders as you like. You pick the width — EQ7 does the math, fitting borders perfectly for you. Central Medallions only take a few clicks to design.
Working with Images
Using your own fabric scans has never been easier! Easily import your fabric and see it in your design! Plus, EQ7 has over 45 different image effects, including artistic, noise, blur and many more. Filters allow you to sharpen, unsharpen, or detect the edges of your image. Square and Circular symmetries take portions of your image and repeat them according to your choices.
And Much, Much More!
