June meeting

Join us at 7pm on June 21st at the Textile Center for an Electric Quilt 8 Overview with Kari Schell.

Electric Quilt has released EQ8, the first major release of their software in 7 years. This lecture will provide you valuable information on whether Electric Quilt 8 is for you. It will include an overview of the most frequently used features with Electric Quilt 8. You will see how to use blocks from the library and put them into a setting of your choice. You will see how the coloring tools work which will allow you to audition your fabric options before you make your first cut. With a few minor changes, you can modify a design so the quilt will actually fit on your bed. And you will see the types of information and instructions that can be printed directly from the program such as yardage charts, foundation patterns and rotary cutting charts.

This meeting is free for MMQG members and $5 for visitors.
