Sunday Stitch is changing! Instead of being a weekly blog it is changing to a monthly blog with new ideas presented the third Sunday of each month. I can’t believe it has been a year of weekly blog entries all ready. Print the blogs and have them bound to use as a quick reference guide on how to work with the tools and inspirational ideas suggesting how you can get more creative with the EQStitch program.

Create what ever shape you want as your repeat design element. I have chosen a simple flower head design.
Click on EDIT>Select All.
Click and drag the row of designs to be slightly below the first row.
Voila! You have created an unique design by applying color to the repeated elements.
Imagine this as a strata colored design on one side of a vest near the hemline, on a tote bag, along the bottom of a shower curtain or even on the hemline of some drapes. There are so many possibilities for this simple design that can stitch up quickly for a digitized design unique to you.
