A new Yahoo group formed this week to explore using Electric Quilt (EQ) software to design art quilts. The idea originated in the Info-EQ list hosted by Planet Patchwork. The moderator is Sheila Williams, a computer consultant and long-time quilter that teaches EQ classes.
The group intends to explore the features within EQ software that allow more freeform design, such as custom sets, patchdraw, easydraw, etc. The group has not started any specific projects or areas of study yet as people are still joining.
I joined the group yesterday and figure I’ll give it time and see how it goes. If you are an EQ user that wants to learn more about the drawing tools and non-traditional settings, this may be a good way to start. You can join the EQArtTutorialGroup here.
