    Learn how to use this powerful software to make exciting quilts using pieced blocks. Electric Quilt is a complex set of programs specially designed for quilters that can revolutionize how you design and make quilts. This workshop was created for EQ7 users however EQ8 users will find it very helpful too - you'll need your manual handy to navigate the layout.

    Shirley will guide you through the process of selecting and changing blocks, auditioning fabric and color choices, deciding on borders and layouts, and bringing all these together to create templates to make your quilts. All the instructions are accompanied by colored screenshots and videos of what to do so that you can see exactly what is happening and follow along easily.
