Today I was working on a quilt for a future class. It is completely scrappy and I needed a lot of fabrics in a few different color families. One of those was white. I have lots of white prints in my fabric collection.
However when I went into Electric Quilt -- for the most part the whites were really not white but multi-color prints with a white background.
I found this commercial for FAB Detergent that showed my how to make my whites, whiter. But alas, I could not find FAB in the grocery store.
So I decided to create a new collection of true "white" fabrics in Electric Quilt just for designing in Electric Quilt.
Here is a quilt (not the one I was working on for my upcoming class), drafted with my "almost" white" fabrics.

In talking to people in my classes and online, one thing I hear is "I haven't really learned how to use my EQ software". Or a variation on the theme -- "I haven't used my software in (insert number) of months (or even years)". or -- "I've tried the software, but it wasn't intuitive".

Thanks for this tutorial, it will be very useful. I'm giving it a try right now. The sides of the video seem to be chopped off, so it was somewhat difficult to follow along. Perhaps it is just my browser.

Thanks for letting me know. The video has now been fixed and uploaded. My apologies.

I rewatched after the fix- this is awesome!! I've already created my own "true whites" collection. I know this will come in handy, because I was needing this just last week.

Like Kim, I also noticed that the sides of the video, and some of the bottom, being chopped off. It makes it hard to see what buttons you are clicking to work your magic. It amazes me how much more there is to EQ7 than I ever thought. Thank you for your videos!

I wish I had this earlier last week - it's just what I needed. Thanks - now I know how to change the fabrics and make my own libraries!
