When I'm roaming around reading blogs I frequently see this little logo. It reminds me that I have Electric Quilt and even the newest update EQ7. I hate seeing this little reminder! Guilt overwhelms me. Guilt that I have EQ7 installed on my computer, but have yet to even open it and look at it. Even more guilt that I see so many other quilters designing beautiful quilt tops with it. I don't know why I have Electric Quilt. In all the years I've owned it, and upgraded from the very first edition, I have yet to use it to design a quilt! I feel terrible about this.
I make new resolutions to myself about how I should learn this program and use it each time I see the EQ logo on my computer screen, and I look at the stack of EQ books sitting in my sewing room book shelf. But, that is about as far as it goes.
I guess basically I have too many other projects going on to consider designing a quilt, like actually sewing one from the hundreds of websites like this one: free quilt patterns or of the dozens of books stacked in my bookshelf (omg!), along with the magazines (more quilt patterns)--- and oddles of quilt pattern packets I've accumulated. I won't even mention the quilt kits I've purchased. (yikes)
Do you EQ? and if so what is the compelling reason that makes you EQ? What am I missing? It must be something wonderful as so many quilters EQ. Why would I EQ? As a quilt creative person I find the fact that have this program and am not attracted to using it more than puzzling, disturbing at times and I am oh- so guilt ridden.
