This tells you how to find the project files in Stitched with Love, copy them, and open them up in EQ7 (PC). (These projects can also be used in EQ7 for Mac, although Stitched with Love needs to first be installed on a Windows computer to gain access to the projects. They are not available directly from the CD.)

Find the Stitched with Love project files on the hard drive

  1. Click START (or on Win 8 or 10 hold down the keyboard Windows key and type E) > click Computer).
  2. Double-click C:\ drive.
  3. Double-click Program Files(or Program Files x86).
  4. Double-click Electric Quilt Company.
  5. Double-click the Magic folder.
  6. Double-click the Projects folder. It opens, displaying projects.

Some of the projects contain only fabrics, blocks, or motifs. The projects you want (with the quilts) are the last nine projects in the list:

  • Chap 2a.pj4
  • Chap 2b.pj4
  • Chap 2c.pj4
  • Chap 2d.pj4
  • Chap 4a.pj4
  • Chap 4b.pj4
