Frequently Asked Questions

I 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.

I want to make 1/2 square triangles templates with the interior diagonal sewing lines drawn in. How do you draw these?

Frequently Asked Questions

Q   I 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.

Q   I 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.

 

Tips

#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.
