Using EQ7 blocks to create Applique

Postby ShariK » Sun Sep 14, 2014 3:05 pm

Is it possible to use an EQ7 Block to create Machine applique. I've looked through the manual, and it seems you have to create your own applique pieces by drawing them.

This depends on the block you are using. If it is a motif block, you simply copy the artwork from the EQ7 block worktable and then paste it onto the artwork tab of the machine applique worktable. From there you assign the fabrics and edge stitches you want. If it is a traditional pieced block, you need to copy the artwork and save it as an image and then bring the image into the machine applique image tab. From there you need to go to the artwork tab and trace the image to create the elements first and then apply fabrics and edge stitches.

Thank you, I edited one of my applique blocks from the Sketch book, did a Control C, went to Work on Stitch area, did a control V on the Art Work tab, then set the edges, etc. It worked beautifully.
