IQ Designer series: Using Built-in Stamps


The IQ Designer has a number of built in stamps that can be used to create unique quilting designs enabling you to quilt in-the-hoop.  You can either do an all over edge to edge type of design, or make your quilting designs to fit into specific spaces. For example, for my quilt I made 4 different designs; one for the large block, 2 for the sashing strips, and one from the small block/post.  You will learn how to select the desired stamps, how to size and manipulate them to get the look you want, then how to select the correct stitch type for your quilt.  You will also learn how to create a boundary on the screen so you know your design will fit into the space you are going to quilt.  You will also practice lining up your designs on your quilt to get beautifully (and perfectly) quilted quilts.  Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of class to set up your machine.
