The Spraycan Tool The Spraycan tool paints matching patches in a block using fabrics or colors. The Spraycan tool is only available on Layers 1 and 2. 1. Click on a fabric in the palette to select it. 2. Click a patch in the quilt. All similarly colored fabric in that block will color with the new fabric. CTRL + click colors the same patch of that same color in all matching blocks (Layers 1 or 2). ALT + click colors the same patch of that color in alternate blocks (Layer 1 only). • If you’d like a reminder of this and other tools in EQ7, check out the Display Dynamic Help tool. • To print this: Click the title (Tool Tip Tuesday! - The Spraycan Tool) and then print as normal.
I have the pleasure of teaching a machine embroidery club every month in my home town. Each month I come up with digitized designs and a corresponding lesson about the design for the students. They then take the stitch files and create whatever project they wish with the stitch outs. Show and tell is awesome and I love seeing what they have created with the designs I provided for them. There is one thing that makes me cringe when I am watching the students stitch or when they are showing something they have done that was either a free internet design or a purchased design from a website and they say ‘This design is awful and very poorly digitized!’ But is it always the fault of digitizing or is it some other influencing factor? The digitizing is only the first step to creating an embroidery design. Hopefully, the digitizer will always test sew their design before releasing it to the public to make sure it is indeed designed properly. Things I look for in a quality design are things like enough underlay stitches for good support of the top embroidery stitches, color sorting to have fewer thread changes…
