I like the shapes but not the colors so my first step is change the colors of the block. Even though the block shows just two colors, you can select each patch and transform a two-color block into a three-color block or more! Click on the Fabric Library and browse through the hundreds of swatches. Select a fabric and click OK. Repeat this process for each patch.
Now that the block is designed, let’s see how the whole quilt will look. Select the block and right click, select Group. Copy and paste the block. Repeat as necessary. Save this file as BlueGoldQuilt. Now you have two working files – one of the block and one of the quilt.
When I save designs that I’ve created in My Quilt Embellisher, I create a new folder titled the name of the quilt, in this case, BlueGold. I save all working designs in that folder. That makes it easy for me to find the block and quilt files if I need to make adjustments – and the work is done!
Virtual quilting is fun – almost as much fun as actual quilting. But nothing beats quilting with fabric and thread!
