Let’s begin:

  1. Right-click the block image and choose ‘Save As’ or ‘Save Target As’ to download
    the packet containing the block we will use for the
    24" inch center. After downloading it, you may open the packet in Quilt-Pro.
  2. Save the
    file to your desktop so it will be easy to find. The packet file name is
    LessonBlock_DaisyWreath.arq
  3. Open
    Quilt-Pro 4 and use File/Open/Packets to open the packet file window.  Locate the
    file and click open. The block will appear on your screen

    Please Note: that the block is made so that it will be on point when the quilt is
    complete.
