Postcript on 9/29/2014 - Loes Vanderheijden shared an even better way to transfer from EQ to Art and Stitch. Here are her instructions.
In Electric Quilt (I used EQ7): ====================== 1. Open the desired block or stencil in your sketchbook and click on Edit to place it on the EQ Workspace. 2. Look at the rulers and make a note of the block dimensions. 3. Choose menu File > Export Metafile of Block 4. In the next dialog click on the button "Copy to Windows Clipboard".
In Art and Stitch (version 3): ==================== 5. Start a new Design Page and choose menu Edit > Paste Special. This will place a copy of the EQ design on the Art and Stitch Design Page, as artwork. 6. While it's still selected, go to Properties panel, tab Transform and enter the dimensions you wrote down in step 2. Click on Apply. 7. To reduce the too many nodes, select all, right-click and choose Simplify Smoothen. Use the following settings: Curve Precision (%): 30 Angle Tolerance: 57 Distance tolerance: 20.
Part 2 of the video shows the actual application and stitch out on my APQS Millennium with Intelliquilter. Regardless of your computerized system, I think you will find this useful.
