1-2-3 Quilt! FAQ

| Program Updates |

Questions:

Q1. When I use the Irish Chain block, the "OOPS" button clears all of the fabric on the block. This is different from how it works with other blocks.  Why?

Q2. When I use the Nose Gay block, the Rotary Chart is missing some of the patches.  Why?

Q3. I am not able to download fabrics from the "quiltstash.com" web site. It seems that I am doing everything right, but when I go back into the program, the new collection does not show up in the fabrics or palettes. Why?

Q4. Does the 1-2-3 Quilt program allow you to scan in fabrics like the Quilt pro does?

Q5. Will 1-2-3 Quilt!  allow for import of blocks from the Foundation Factories or the new Kansas City Star disks.  

Q6. I have 1-2-3 Quilt! and QuiltPro. The 123 Quilt! manual says I can export a 123 Quilt file   into QuiltPro but there are no directions about how to do it. And my QuiltPro program says I cannot import anything from any other Windows program. Help!

Q7. I initially installed 123 Quilt without the fabric. Now, the program comes up every time someone turns on the computer.

Q8. I trying to print rotary cutting instructions for the plain alternate block and for the side triangles in a diagonal setting.

 


Answers:

Q1. When I use the Irish Chain block, the "OOPS" button clears all of the fabric on the block. This is different from how it works with other blocks.  Why?

A1. The problem isn't with the program but with the block. The Irish chain block was layered over itself and that is what is creating the problem. You may download the corrected block by clicking here.

Q2. When I use the Nose Gay block, the Rotary Chart is missing some of the patches.  Why?

A2. The problem isn't with the program but with the block. There was a mistake made when we drew the block and that is what is creating the problem. You may download the corrected block by clicking here.

Q3.  I am not able to download fabrics from the "quiltstash.com" web site. It seems that I am doing everything right, but when I go back into the program, the new collection does not show up in the fabrics or palettes. Why?

A3. Locate the file you downloaded and double click it. You will get the option to change the directory path to install the files. The path should read C:\Program Files\123-Quilt instead of C:\Program Files\QuiltPro3.  Very soon there should be files there specifically for the 123quilt program.

Q4. Does the 1-2-3 Quilt program allow you to scan in fabrics like the Quilt pro does?

A4. No, because in 1-2-3 Quilt! you can not create fabric palettes. However, you may download fabrics from www.quiltstash.com.

Q5. Will 1-2-3 Quilt!  allow for import of blocks from the Foundation Factories or the new Kansas City Star disks. 

A5. No, the program does not allow you to move to other directories to open files. In addition, many of the files in Kansas City Star are applique blocks, which will not work in 1-2-3 Quilt!

Q6. I have 1-2-3 Quilt! and QuiltPro. The 123 Quilt! manual says I can export a 123 Quilt file  into QuiltPro but there are no directions about how to do it. And my QuiltPro program says I cannot import anything from any other Windows program. Help!

A6. Export was probably the wrong word to use in this instance. What we meant to say is you can "open" any block or quilt from 123-Quilt in Quilt Pro.

Use Quilt Pro's Browser's Explorer Pane to locate the blocks and quilts in the 123-Quilt directory (scroll up from the Quilt Pro directory until you see 123-Quilts). It has the same structure as the Quilt Pro directory. Then drag and drop the patterns into the window as you would with the library blocks.

Q7. I initially installed 123 Quilt without the fabric. Now, the program comes up every time someone turns on the computer.

A7. To remove a program from the Start or Programs menu

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Taskbar & Start Menu.
  2. Click the Start Menu Programs tab.
  3. Click Remove, and then locate the program you want to remove in the Startup Folder. 
  4. Click the program, and then click Remove.

Notes
·Although this deletes the shortcut from the Start menu, the original program remains on your computer.
·Click Advanced if you want to move a program's shortcut by using Windows Explorer.
If you do not have a 123Quilt icon on your Desktop, you should move the Icon from the Start menu to another program folder.

Q8. I trying to print rotary cutting instructions for the plain alternate block and for the side triangles in a diagonal setting.

A8. At the moment 123-Quilt can not print Rotary Cutting instructions for either item. Here is the information you will need for those items using a 9" block size as an example: For the 9" alternate block, cut the squares 9.5" (The finished size of the block plus 1/2") For the side triangles use Quarter-square triangles, cut the Squares 10.25" then cut 4 Triangles from one square. (The finished size of the block plus 1.25") (Use Quarter Square triangles to get the long side of the triangle on the grain line.)
