Another favorite use of mine is for figuring out cutting my pieces for my blocks. EQ7 won't tell you how to sew your block, but it will tell you the sizes for the pieces, and give you some rotary cutting dimensions. Click File - Print - Rotary Cutting...
Make sure you select the button for use size from quilt, and .25 for seam allowance. Hit preview and you can see the instructions.
If you click zoom in, then click and drag over the area you want to enlarge you can see the details:
You can see the size of our pieces, and how many pieces of each color are in your block. If you want to make more than one block in your quilt, you are on your own to figure out the math. I like to write it all out on my print copy for later reference. You never know when you might need that information later! I had a request for another feathered star quilt and I am so glad I have all my pages saved with cutting info and yardage so I don't have to recalculate.
