Welcome Software Saturday readers! Recently, I had a conversation with an avid My Block Piecer user. She loves this software and makes large blocks and mini blocks – really, really mini blocks! She told me she struggles with one thing – the numbers that are stitched in each patch. On the one hand, she loves the numbers because they tell her where to place the next piece of fabric. But…sometimes she doesn’t want the number to actually stitch. She would prefer to skip the numbers when using light colored fabrics or when stitching mini blocks. Since the numbers are part of the schematic (the outlines of the patches), she can’t just skip the colors at the machine. So here’s how to get rid of them in the software.
Go to File, Save As and assign a new name to the design. Use this design to stitch and the original design to print the schematic and instructions.
Don’t you just love this software? It gives you so much freedom when creating blocks to piece in the hoop!
