Author: Patti Anderson Lesson book for Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7) software. EQ with Me: Pieced Drawing is the book anyone who really wants to draw blocks in EQ7 needs. The original book sold out, so we’ve republished it in a special newly designed large-format, spiral-bound volume. If you already have Patti Anderson’s EQ6 Pieced Drawing, don’t buy this book. If you don’t have it already, grab it while you can. You’ll love how it will help you draw!
Although EQ with Me companion books are written for EQ7 PC, they work as well for EQ7 Mac with only a few keystroke differences.

These books are for EQ7 software and are not directly compatible with EQ8 software. EQ8 has been redesigned so the lessons do not translate well to the new version.

If you have the EQ6 Pieced Drawing book by Patti R. Anderson, there is an excellent tutorial on drawing 60 deg. Blocks. It is in Chapter 4: Drawing Outside the Box and begins on Page 182. If you do not have the book, they have just re-released it under the name “EQ with Me – Pieced Drawing” and I highly recommend purchasing it. It is full of valuable information and gives you the math formulas. The book also describes how to create Isometric Gridlines that you can save and use anytime you want to draw 60 deg. diamond, hexagons, or equilateral triangles.
The Pieced Drawing book is great and the Appliqué Drawing book is exceptional. I’ll be recommending both in classes.
There is so much information just in the first chapter. Patti explains how to draft a block then gives many examples of blocks to create and add to a library. There are 6 parts to the first chapter and so far I only have the rectangle patchdraw library complete. I am still working on the circle patchdraw blocks which include Mariners’ Compass blocks, the arc grid patchwork blocks which allow you to create blocks for a NY Beauty type quilt and 8 pointed star blocks. So I have a long ways to go to finish just the first chapter. And I have learned a lot so far. It is quite a challenge and I hope that many of you will buy Patti’s book as you will learn a lot more about how to use EQ6.
