I received the following from Judy who writes:
"Comments: I think to do more than 24 blocks in a border that you need to change your default settings.Currently they are probably set at 24.
Do: Quilt>Quilt Table Options then click the "all styles" under "Layout options" then change the value in "max number blocks horiz and vert" from 24 to whatever you want.
I know you are good with a computer so I didn't take this down to total detail. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.I enjoy you very much - thank you for all you do for us."
Now I feel pretty stupid.....but thanks for the learning!
Previously I wrote in frustration:
All quilts are NOT square – and I’m having a hard time drawing out a border in EQ that is SO SIMPLE it should not cause me problems!
My quilt is set 4 X 5 with sashings and inner border as shown below.
I have NO trouble breaking down the inner top and bottom borders to do what I need them to do. There are 23 bricks and 2 cornerstones.
This is where things get crummy – and why I’ve always been frustrated with this program. EQ limits me to 24 block divisions in the side borders..and I need 26! 24 will just not work because of the design and what I want to do to the side of those sashing cornerstones to complete the design.
SOMEONE out there HAS to have some info for me on what to do…because this is just stupid. All quilts are NOT square. All quilts should not be limited to 24 border divisions!
You can see on the top and bottom borders that the bricks line up with the cornerstones…but those side borders need TWO MORE to make it work!
I am pulling my hair out….please, EQ Warriors – help me put it back in again!
