QI have drawn 2
straight lines and one arc but when I select all three and to join lines but either it
says "no line objects selected" or it joins the two straight lines along the
third edge of a triangle. A You can only join lines and curves. Unfortunately,
you can't join arcs. The arc was meant for quilting stencils where the lines don't have to
be joined. (i.e., clamshells) Also, you can't join lines to patches.
QI want to make 1/2
square triangles templates with the interior diagonal sewing lines drawn in. How do you
draw these? A It's possible to draw the sewing lines in 1/4"
away from the diagonal cutting line and this is how you do it. Set your screen grid to .13
inches (or 1/8") and then draw a block that is 7/8" larger than the size of one
side of your triangle. I think you know that concept so I won't explain it. Then draw a
line diagonally through the middle. Then to set your sewing lines 1/4 in away from the
cutting line draw a line starting 3/8" from the first diagonal line. End the line
3/8" from the end of the first line. Print the block in actual size.
You won't be able to resize the drawing without redrawing the sewing lines. Always keep
these 3/8" away from the cutting line.
#1... Quilt Pro User Marty Pierson tells us that whenever
she sees patterns in magazines that she'd like to keep for later use she draws the pattern
in Quilt Pro and in the files title she put the name of the magazine and the page number
where she found the design. Thanks Marty that's a great idea.
#2...Another Quilt-Pro user has admitted to using Quilt-Pro for designing Stained Glass projects instead of quilts. He makes these
glass projects for sale and says the quilt designs are the most popular.
