  1. Lea J. says:

    Wow! What cool software. I would use this to help practice designing my quilts and to test what certain blocks would look like together..

  2. Karen says:

    I would so love to win the EQ7! I have always wanted to try this, how fun would this be:)

  3. Christine says:

    I have designed some quilt patterns on graph paper. I would love to transfer them to EQ7 and experiment with colors and fabrics!

  4. Sallie says:

    I’d play with the quilting motifs first. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Diana M says:

    If I won the EQ7 software I would first try playing with color options. As a new quilter I am somewhat intimidated by picking out colors that work well together. I’m a visual person and this will definitely help!

  6. Susan Simmons says:

    If I were to win the Electric Quilt 7 software, I would use it scan in the fabrics from my stash, customize my own blocks and design the most wonderful quilts.

  7. Amanda A says:

    I would love to be able to practice some bold geometric quilting designs – typically I stick with a meander or stippling. Branching out would be awesome!

  8. Regina says:

    I want to play with coloring my blocks – so that I can see how changes in the color placement will change the outcome of the quilt. (I also want to draft the Lazy Angle blocks from Lazy Girl Designs into EQ7 so I can play with them – but I need to learn to “walk” before I “run” I think)

  9. MargaretQuilts says:

    I would setup a specific block of a quilt top reading for handquilting. Then start playing around with possible quilting motifs for that block. This would give me experience with both block creation, and for a task that need to do.

  10. Joan Thornock says:

    It would be wonderful to have more ideas to try and add inspiration!

  12. Laura Schmigel says:

    I would love to win the EQ7 to come up with some layouts for the 3 years of Block of the Month squares I have that have not been made into quilts.

  13. Reba Haas says:

    I could use this product to add texture and character to enhance my quilt design with fancy stichery to finish my peoject with artistic flard. My project/quilt will be proffesionally finished.

  14. Judy Morrison says:

    Quilts for my grandkids 4, 2 and one coming in October.

  15. Mary says:

    WOW! I am a new embroidery machine owner and the EQ7 looks fantastic. At this point in my embroidery experimenting, this would be so great to have in the designing of quilts. Looking at the videos exposing this program it looks like it will be very easily learned. This is exciting.

  16. Betty Rosato says:

    I love scrappy quilts and would love the ability to rearrange different fabrics and see the design that emerges …and make any necessary changes before it is sewn. Also, I’d love to experiment with different quilting designs before making my final choice. Thank you for your great products!

  17. Sandy W says:

    I have been wanting this software for a long time but haven’t been able to justify buying it instead of more fabric (ha!). Using inspiration from Quiltmaker and other sources, I like taking a pattern and changing it just a bit into something uniquely me. EQ7 would definitely help me with my creative process. Please, oh please, pick me!

  20. Sherri says:

    If I won the EQ I would be so happy I would cry tears of joy! First thing I would do is share with my quilting ladies at church. We make quilts and donate to many different relief organizations and right now we only tie our quilts. Winning the EQ7 would mean so many more quilt designs, and more time doing what we love!

  21. Pam says:

    The first thing I would do is pick some of my favorite patterns and try out different colors. I always have trouble visualizing what a whole quilt will look like even when I do a sample block. This would help a lot. Thanks for the opportunity.

  22. Barbara Magill says:

    Winning this software would be a dream come true. The first thing I would check out would be the quilting patterns. I need new ideas to quilt on my longarm for customers and charity quilts. I would also like to have quick and interesting patterns for Ronald McDonald and Baby Corner quilts.

  23. Stephanie in Oregon says:

    I just watched the video demo of all the features of EQ7– wow! I don’t know what I would use first. I love that it draws out your quilt idea, lets you fill in the blocks with the fabric choices, and then calculates the sizes and quantities of all the pieces you need to make the quilt! It is a far cry from my pencil and graph paper approach that I use now. There are so many more advanced features, but I can’t even imagine them. Thanks for the chance the win this wonderful design tool :-)

  24. I would LOVE to win a copy of EQ7. I have admired this software for a long time, and it’s definitely on my wish list. I would love to win, and if I did, the very first thing I would do is design a quilt with swirling, skewed flying geese for paper piecing. Those fascinate me!

  25. diane says:

    I would play with quilting designs – I have a few tops ready to be quilted but am at a loss as to what to do to them.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. Sue Pockrandt says:

    I would love to win EQ7! Playing with colors would be so much easier than using graph paper and colored pencils.

  27. Carla G says:

    I would design quilts for my boys & myself. I have a hard time designing in my head and knowing what it would look like first, especially by choosing the fabrics/colors it would save me time. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

  28. Kathy Poole says:

    I would love to win this as I’ve heard so many friends talking about great it is. If I won, I’d see myself installing, getting acquainted with the program and then designing all these quilts that keep spinning in my head with no way to be created.

  29. Karlene says:

    The first thing I would play with would be to jump right in and try designing a variety of quilts. I’d love to have this program to help make me more creative.

  30. Linda Dutcher says:

    I would love to become a better quilter and I think that this product would go a long way towards helping me achieve that goal. Thanks for the chance to win it.

  31. Madeline says:

    I have had the EQ Wizard for some time, but really would like to have the whole shebang with EQ7! The Wizard just whetted my appetite. The first thing I would do is put some ideas in place for a quilt for my sister. She has been wanting me to make one for her for some time, but she is very picky with what colors and designs would suit her. So if I had the EQ7, I could make up a picture that I could email her (she does live 6 hours away from me) and she could tell me if she would like it before I go to the expense and time to make it! I love her dearly and would like to please her, before I get too old to do it.

  32. Joanne says:

    If I had EQ7 I could stop using the graph paper and pencil to resize the quilts that I want to make. The quilting designs that don’t fit my quilts could be changed without playing with the sizes in my printer/copier.

  33. Debbie P says:

    Electric Quilt is an amazing program that would allow me to manipulate different shapes and try out different colorways to create an interesting design. I would love to have the software to learn all the different aspects of drafting a complete design.

  34. Diane says:

    How cool is that? You make it sound so easy to use! Thanks for the giveaway.

  35. Michele says:

    I think I would use it to replace the graph paper I use now when I play with quilt blocks and designs.

  36. Barb says:

    I would download the fabrics I have that are waiting to be in a quilt, so that I could design & see the block before I sewed it together.

  37. Carrie Wild says:

    I would love to be able to design my own quilts using fabric that I have in my stash or new that I buy at the quilt shop. So many times I buy fabric that I really like and then it just sits in my stash because I am really not sure what I want to do with it. I would love to expand my quilt options and I think this would be a wonderful way to do so. Thank you for this opportunity to enter!

  38. Kelly Fluharty says:

    If I won EQ7 I would love to be able to download the fabric in my stash so that I can try it out in different designs. Thank you so much for the opportunity!! Kelly

  39. Kathy McKnight says:

    If I were fortunate enough to win EQ7, I would begin drawing & designing my own blocks and quilt patterns. The first thing I would play with would be the “how to” section so I could learn how to use the software. Thank you for the opportunity to win your awesome program!!!!

  40. Lisa C says:

    I would love to be able to design quilt (blocks) on the computer …. it would be so much faster than doing it by hand. Not to mention that my local quilt store is going to be having EQ classes starting in a few months. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

  41. Marcy says:

    I just can’t imagine all the possibilities that can be accomplished with EQ7! I have heard so many positive comments that I can’t wait to get started with it. I would probably play with it, then start designing quilts for my grandchildren. After that, the ideas are endless! Can’t wait. . . . I sure hope I win!

  42. carol says:

    Would love to win the EQ7 software and be able to learn all the new ways it can be used in quiltmakeing. The possibilities are endless.I would also like to design my own Civil War quilt with it I have the idea on how but always forget.Thank you for the chance to win. Happy Quilting

  43. Janene says:

    I would first learn and understand how this EQ7 software program works and I can see myself spending at least a week studying this new software for I want to learn how to design and digitize embroidery. After I have gain that knowledge I would play with the red work embroidery designs and incorporate them into my quilts to give them that timeless and country feel and in the process achieve an updated modern theme to my quilts. There is a wealth of information out there and I am never too old to learn something new and I am always striving to educate myself in the field of design, fabric, quilting, and sewing. Thank you for making this software available for all of us who love to create!

  44. Donna says:

    Wow! want a great prize to help me use some of my fabric. I currently have a old version of Quilt Wizard that I have just about worn out. Also with teaching a quilting class this would provide us with so many more options. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  45. Maria Roach says:

    I envision myself using eq7 to design all kinds of things. currently i do not have a design wall(lack of space) which limits my possibilities by a lot. The first thing i would create, after learning the software, :) …would be to design a magnificent quilt of valor to donate. I’ve been wanting to do this for so long now and i never like the patterns that are for purchase.My husband’s family was raised in a military family and his love for our country is deep. I would love to contribute by sharing my quilting talents and donate a beautiful valor quilt to a deserving family.

  46. Vicky Morrow says:

    I would love to use its’ quilt design features. I’m sure it would beat my graph paper and colored pencils with no effort at all. I’ve dreamed about software to help me design, but could never afford it.

  47. Margaret Harrington says:

    I think the first thing I would do is see what all is available. I talk myself in and out of buying the software so I would really enjoy seeing what everyone is talking about. Thank you for the opportunity to win one.

  48. Debbie says:

    It would be so wonderful to take blocks that I have always wanted to make and try designs with them without so much drawing and copying or sewing first! I would love to win this giveaway-thanks for the chance!

  49. Elaine says:

    I have so many quilts I would like to design and see before I start. I would start with a Christmas project I have planned for my grandchildren which is a wall hanging with pictures of then for their bedrooms. It would be great to design them on the computer since I have 19 to do this for and will take some time doing this by drawing them individually and I want them to be custom made for each child. Thanks for the chance to win.

  50. Mary Lee says:

    I would so use this software to try my hand at designing my own BLOCKS AND QUILTS!!! It would be so exciting to be able to design and make a quilt totally my own. I could import my fabrics and know exactly which fabrics would be my best fit for my vision. Just think of the savings, both time and fabrics because you know exactly which fabrics work best without cutting. So very exciting.

  51. Marguerite Namdar says:

    I would love to create my own block design. I would try playing with some of the star designs and see what I could come up with.

  52. Michelle Prenger says:

    I would start by designing a “jazz” quilt for my father, who is 78 years old and still playing jazz professionally. I have been collecting red, white, and black fabrics featuring jazz motifs (and other wild patterns) for a few years and need to finally get this quilt made. I want it to be something really unique. This program would be the perfect tool!

  53. I think this would help me learn about quilting design, color choices, and layout. It would be a great tool to creating.

  54. Kathy L says:

    I don’t know what I would try first. So many possibilities. Thanks for the chance to win.

  55. Marilyn Wiechert says:

    I would love to be able to design my own quilt. I have been wanting to do a red, white and blue quilt since I saw the designs of valor. It is so time consuming using graph paper and trying to change the colors around to get the look I want. Thank you for this opportunity.

  56. Karen Propes says:

    I would use the EQ7 quilt design software to help me design quilt ideas that I have in my mind to make. Now I just spend hours and hours, plotting it out to look the way I want it. Using other blocks I want to incorporate into the quilt. But it takes so long just to design out by hand and then I have to go back and do all the calculating to see how large and how much fabric is needed. Sometimes, when I start I hit a snag, like need a few more blocks to make everything match up correctly. My DH says you make more quilts from what you want them to look like as opposed to using a pattern. Which is true, but I love buying fabric and that’s the only way I can use fabric I purchase for specific projects. This – oh – my would give me more time to sew and quilt and finish vs my old way. Winning this would be a MAJOR score for my Quilting Room, and instead of books with hand done patterns, patterns could be saved in the software, I could share it and also free up some much needed space in my Quilting Room. I could replace the books with FABRIC, so beautiful and colorful to help fill my days with happiness and finished quilts. Thank you for the chance to enter for this Fabulous giveaway.

  57. carolyn says:

    I always have ideas floating around in my head but I seldom sit down to put on paper. I would love to be able to sit and create with EQ software! It really helps me to see my ideas visually and to weed out the good from the bad! My daughters have recently started to create their own quilts and I know they would love to use for more modern designs or new twists on the classics. The opportunities would be endless!

  58. Deb says:

    Having wanted this for a long time, the first thing I would do is schedule the next WEEK off from work and have EQ help me have Xmas presents all finished the earliest ever! I can hardly wait…

  59. Pauline L says:

    I would use it to design all the ideas I have for quilts that are stored away in my head. How wonderful it would be to see the infinite color possibilities or additional design options to my ideas. I would use it to try and get my techie daughters into quilting seeing how this is computerized, I’m sure they would come up with a few ideas themselves. As for my first project, I want to design a one of a kind quilt for my very best friend who has been there for me and who is so giving. giving her a quilt tike this will show how much I appreciate her.

  60. Emily C says:

    I am currently designing quilts by hand and would love to have a software program that helps me make the process easier and faster! I have heard many good reviews about EQ and would love to win a copy.

  61. Kelly Sas says:

    What would I first do??? That’s like asking me which one of my grandsons I would play with first when I travel to see them! One of many things I know I would do is to design an exclusive quilt block for the quilt guild I am in, make many different examples of it and have kits available for sale at our show this summer. How fun would that be?!?

  62. Ann Olson says:

    This would help me be more productive and hopefully a bit more original. I spend so much time trying to design something to fit a certain table or bed and then trying to find a pattern to fit the space.

  63. I’ve dreamed of a pattern I’d love to create. Trying to draft it out on paper is much too frustrating. I’d love to win the EQ7 and be able to finally make this one. Thanks for the give a way chance to win.

  64. Opal Johnson says:

    I have wanted to try Equilt for sometime. I have such a hard time choosing colors and fabrics for my quilts maybe being able to try different combinations prior to purchasing and cutting fabrics will give me the confidence I want to have when trying the more challenging quilt patterns my heart wants to do.

  65. Amber says:

    I would play with it and see what new quilt I could come up with!

  66. Rosemary Hop says:

    Wow, would I ever love to learn this tool for creating new quilts! Expecting my 9th grandbaby soon, and the oldest is only 11, so there are many quilts to be made in the near future! This software would greatly expand my quilting skills, I think.

  67. Linda Fairbrother says:

    What a great tool to design quilts. thanks for the opportunity to win.

  68. Monica says:

    What would be the first thing I would use Eq for…..I have heard so much about this program and the possiblilities I am told are endless. I would probably need to get a new computer first but I have a difficult time picturing the finished quilt with colours that I have chosen and seem to alwa;ys take more time in rearranging pieces of colour and I have a tool that lets me see additional images of the squares in a small verison. I had read that you could scan your fabric and the image would be reproduced and that would be my greatest dream. I had purchased and used the Eq designs and that is a super plus so the EQ would be an idea super plus plus. Thank you for the opportunity to be selected.

  69. Nancy F says:

    Would to win this soft ware! thanks for the chance to win.

  70. Janie says:

    How exciting to get assistance with quilt creation and ideas! Trying to get back some creativity after 25 years working in computers!

  71. Linny says:

    After a quick tutorial I would begin designing my own quilts! Imagine how I could reduce my stash. EQ would make it so easy and foolproff…

  72. LeeAnn M says:

    Oh my…I would LOVE to win this software…it would give me an opportunity to learn how to design my own quilt(s) and possibly move through some of my fabric stash…hoping to hear from you!!! Thanks for offering a chance to win!

  73. I would love to win EQ 7. I have enjoyed your Quiltmaker Magazine for many years . I do have Embroidery software for digitizing designs . For quilts I draw the patterns on the quilt to sew . I have a lot of quilts to finish. The Latte Love pattern in issue # 149. I am going to make . Rose

  74. Maggie Hein says:

    I often want to change the size of a pattern to fit a specific purpose and spend a lot of time drawing the patterns on graph paper. EQ7 would get me sewing a lot faster…

  75. Patty Moffitt says:

    I would probably design more patterns that I will not live long enough to sew into a quilt! I love playing with my Quilt Design Wizard, and would really like the extended benefits of EQ7.

  76. Kathy8952 says:

    I love your magazine and would love to win EQ 7. I have watched the demo at the Houston International Quilt Festival. Sounds like user support is very good. I could design my own quilts. Imagine all of the fun that would be. Thank you

  77. Sheryl Moore says:

    I would try to design a new exciting quilt that is different from any other that I have seen.

  78. Susan Rizzi says:

    I would love to have electric quilt to design quilts using my stash. I would like to be able to scan my fabrics and play with placement within a block to see how it would look since I have problems visualizing how designs would look. I especially would love to make a baby quilt using colorful turtles.

  79. Janet B. says:

    To be able to use EQ7 would be sooooo exciting! I can’t wait to see all the endless possibilities of using my own fabrics in designing my quilts, all the “what if’s”, and to be able to audition a quilting design on my quilt first would be …….”priceless”.

    I hear that EQ7 is user friendly and would absolutely love the opportunity to try it out when I’m chosen as the lucky winner.

  80. Sharon M says:

    I could finally make all the quilt patterns and designs in my head come to life. Thanks for the offer to win an EQ7. :-)

  81. Jerilyn Lester says:

    I would love to have the EQ7 then I can start designing my own quilts with confidence.

  82. Karen Frank says:

    It would be so wonderful to own this design software. I love to quilt and I am working on whole cloth quilting. I could combine the two to create so many wonderful projects. Thanks for offering this awesome giveaway!!!

  83. Gretchen Willi says:

    Oh where to start! I guess I would have to start with the design features.. I have the plain jane version and have been dreaming about owning the EQ7 program! Thank you for providing such a wonderful give-away!

  84. sue says:

    Wow! Oh the designs you can create… Where to start, would be my first question!
    Since I LOVE to PLAY, I certainly see this software providing LOTS of PLAY TIME!
    I have wanted Electric Quilt for a long time and have seen it demonstrated a number of times. The flexibility it provides is invaluable when creating a new design.
    My first project utilizing the software would be to design a quilt for my 21 year old son who leaves for the Navy in August. :-)

  85. Ann Scott says:

    I would love to design a quilt in which I could use my embroidery machine to it’s full advantage. The bright colours being used in quilts this season are perfect for a very dreary day.

  86. Vicki says:

    After recovering from the shock of holding the package in my hands (I have wanted this software for so long!), the first thing I would do is take one individual block and try various color combinations to see how many various patterns I can create. Color is such a fabulous part of the quilting process and the software lends itself to make color study a fun and easier process than using color pencils and graph paper.

  87. Mary Burn says:

    I would use it to explore the different color variations. I have seen how it works for a friend of mine and her quilts always turn out beautiful. Thanks for including me in your giveaway.

  88. Bonnie Breneman says:

    WOW, Words do not explain well enough what I would do. Since I was hit with Lupus, quilting has been the one thing left that I can do for enjoyment. I love designing my own quilts. And on my days when I am not feeling well, that is what I do. On my good days, I work on them. What a feeling to be able to see your work/results come to life before you. I actually feel good about myself that I was able to accomplish something worth while. Then be able to give it to someone who so appreciates that very special gift. From friends and relatives to Quilts for Kids and other needy people. Giving a Quilt to anyone can make all the difference in their day and they can always have it to snuggle up whit on the cold winter nights, watching a movie/TV, or just when they are blue. It reminds them that someone actually cares. When you wrap up in a quilt that has been made with love and given as a gift, it is like a hug. Who doesn’t need a hug? Boy what I could design with EQ7! Endless possibilities! So much fun, and making your own design, it does not get any better then that. Giving away that quilt to someone, well that is absolutely priceless. When I give away a quilt, I am saying “I care”. Thank you for this opportunity for a chance to win this.

  89. joan s says:

    I have seen demonstrations of EQ and think it would be so helpful when trying to figure out border designs and changing the size of blocks in quilt patterns. Would love a chance to win this!

  90. Trudie vd Westhuizen says:

    I would love to have this big present. We (3 pensioners) live in a small town with no quilting facilities and we have to drive 70km to the nearest quilt supplier. This present will help us to do our planning more accurate before starting a quilt and run out of material as well as to have a preview of our “new” quilts. That will keep us up to date with all the techniques.

  91. Patty says:

    EQ7 has long been on my wish list. I would use it to finally design the quilt ideas in my head.

  92. Charlene Cullinane says:

    Oh, to be blessed to be the lucky recipient of this incredible software! To be shamefully honest, i would rip the packaging open like a 3 year old on Christmas then after completing my signature happy dance through the house i would happily experience every single option throughout the entire program in one sitting! Some may be thinking i am exaggerating a tad but those who know me, are not suprised! I’ve been dreaming of having my very own EQ, how sweet it would be to become reality!

  93. CHERYL JAMESON says:

    I would love this if I won. Sometimes at night I go over designs in my head trying to imagine how they would look and the colors I would use. This would allow me to see, really see all the possibilities and make them a reality

  94. Victoria Lawhorne says:

    I would put it to use using up my stash. I would make quilts for the Animal shelter and for the ER I work in. I might even teach my husband to help me with it in his retirement And there are those 2 new granddaughters….

  95. Paula Lyon says:

    What an issue of Quiltmaker! All about hexagons! I have been collecting jewel tone fabrics with metallics for a hexagon quilt. I have been debating as to what design. Quiltmaker had lots of great ideas. I after reading the issue, I planned to look into an EQ to plan out a panoramic of Garden of the Gods in Colorado using the different shapes suggested. The embroidery EQ would be used to add people and dogs in the park and detail. I would draw them and digitize them on the quilt. I would also add plants, birds and rock detail. I am excited of the possibilities!

  96. Cheryl Matthews says:

    I have been wanting EQ7 since I started sewing. My dream is to design patterns for quilts. I have looked st other software and so far EQ7 is the one I’ve been hoping to get. I would love to win the EQ7, it would put me closer to having my dream come true.

  97. Linda Mc says:

    Although my chances of winning EQ7 are slim to none, I can assure you I would love to use the software to enable me to make better decisions of color, setting, and design on my quilts. I have trouble visualizing the entire quilt and EQ7 would help me become a more successful quilter. Thanks for the opportunity.

  98. Susan Davies says:

    I have had my eye on this product for a long time, I keep saving my pennies in hope that I will have enough. To be able to create and see what I want to make come to life before my eyes is such a wonderful thought. EQ7 come home to me.

  99. Karen says:

    I’ve never used EQ but heard so much about it. I think I would just play and play and play!

    I would love to play with EQ7 to design new quilt styles. I want to try to make quilts with several different block sizes in one quilt top. I think I would first look at all the new block patterns available. I have EQ5 and I love it, it has helped me to design more innovative quilts than I would have been able to on my own. I would be so happy to have EQ7 to try all the new features!
