Unfortunately I have not finished quilting the quilt. I have done minimal machine quilting in the last three years and when I put the quilt on my longarm, I found a problem with my computerized system. After some communication with Intelliquilter, they decided that I needed to upgrade my motors, which meant sending them off.
While waiting for their return, I decided that I could still select the quilting designs. I found some designs that were loaded on my Intelliquilter that looked like they would work for the corners for the center blocks and the large rectangles for the border blocks.
However, the only thing I can download to my computer is a picture of the designs. Both designs were created by Helen Baczynski for Intelliquilter.
I could always trace the designs as applique motifs in Electric Quilt and set them on my quilt. But sometimes we don't always have time for that.
So I thought I would share a short-cut in my video this week. Rather that creating motifs we will use pictures of the quilting designs for auditioning the designs on the quilt. I won't be able to change the "color". But I will still be able to figure out size and whether it will look good in my quilt.
Here are the close-ups of my auditioning.
Yikes. "Only" 84 spaces to fill. Can I get this done in time for the show? If I do, I will post pictures on next weeks blog post.

This lesson created 2 offshoots for me. 1. a modification of your setting design for the quilt to use with a focus fabric or panel 2. importing the quilt layout and blocks into another project so all I had to do is put the blocks in the quilt. I replaced the critter blocks in the borders with rail blocks leaving the corner block. Reminded me to use background removing program too. Thanks

Perfect tutorial for me. I have been trying to play with adding a quilting stencil to my quilt. You must have bee reading my mind. Hope your sewing weekend was fun.
