Have you heard the great news? After years of patiently waiting, a new version of Electric Quilt software was released, just in time for Christmas! I’m sure you are all busy with your holiday shopping so here’s a fabulous gift you could win for yourself!!
Click here to learn more about EQ8!
Meet EQ8, with an updated interface, new features, and the same great capabilities you’ve come to know!
I have to share a fun behind the scenes story. Back in 2016 when I met the owners Dean and Penny for the first time while teaching at EQ Academy, I was impressed not only with their business sense, but it was heartwarming to see how much they cared about their customers. I asked if they would be releasing an updated version of the software since the previous version, EQ7 had been launched way back in 2010.
Even those these images say “coming soon” they are actually here now!!!
Dean’s answer really impressed me. He told me that he’d only release a new version if there was a market need for it. He said he didn’t want to follow in the footsteps the big software companies who release new versions year after year just so they could gouge their customers. He wanted to make sure that any new product the company created had enough value to justify the cost.
I love how thoughtful they were with releasing this software. Those who already own EQ6 or EQ7 can upgrade to the version at a lower cost, and those who haven’t ever owned it before can easily purchase and download it online without having to wait for anything to arrive in the mail.
This is my favorite thing about EQ8!
I’ve recently installed my version of EQ8 and just started designing new projects for upcoming patterns and online classes. So far it’s even easier to use than EQ7 and the interface is much more intuitive.
Once you start using this software, it will be hard to design without it!

Would be fun to try; I usually use Photoshop, which can be ok but it has no quilt-specific abilities.
Thank you for the chance to win — would love it!

I have loved my Electric Quilt 7, and cannot wait to upgrade to EQ8. Thank you for the chance to win. Either way I will be upgrading for Christmas!
What a wonderful giveaway, and just in time for Christmas! There is probably a big learning curve from graph paper to EQ8, but I’d sure like to learn. Thank you!
Thank you for the opportunity to win the program, and I love your new fabric line.

What a wonderful giveaway. I have been following along with many designers, learning what EQ8 holds for everyone.
What a fun way to start the New Year, the best way is EQ8. Thanks for the opportunity and giveaway.
Wow this software sounds fantastic especially if you can upload fabrics to visually see how your designs would look ! I’d love to win a copy, but if not I’ll be looking into getting a copy. Thanks Christa.
EQ8 would be great to have on my computer. I’ve been designing on graph paper.
This would be good to use to design a quilt using fabric in my stash. I may be able to “reverse engineer” it to enter the yardage I have of some fabrics and get a design in which it could be used.
Would love to give EQ a try!
