EQ Stitch

Just a quick note here about EQ Stitch, as the special price on it goes through the end of March. It is a great program and I highly recommend it for those who want to incorporate machine embroidery in their quilts and designing. While I plan to write a full review and a tutorial on digitizing for die cut applique shapes in EQStitch, there just isn’t time this week. But it is a great tool for quilters.

EQStitch is not a full featured digitizing program, but what it will do is allow those who do not want to learn or pay for a full featured digitizing program to create simple machine embroidery including great applique designs for your quilt blocks. The reason I started digitizing in the first place was that I couldn’t find the applique designs for the quilt blocks I wanted to make. With EQStitch, you will be able to do that. And if you are a digitizer, it is a great “linking” software between EQ quilt design and machine embroidery.

More later–after Easter!

Here’s one I quilted last week. Thought you’d like to see how nice it looks finished.

  1. The quilt is lovely. Can you save your designs in the format that you use on the longarm machine?

  2. I have looked at EQStitch on the home site but I am trying to learn how to use Brothers PE Design 9 Next. I have decided I am a slow learner! Actually I am a retired RN but it takes a lot of time and patience to learn these programs. What program do you use for your digitizing? It is more fun to just buy your pretty designs!!
