Inspirations’ My Quilt Embellisher offers many ways to fill negative space on a quilt block. I enjoy trying different background fills because virtual quilting is fast and easy. Auditioning a variety of background fills gives me confidence that I’ll like the final outcome and it’s easy to do in My Quilt Embellisher. Just a few clicks and the background or negative space of a quilt block is filled with interesting texture. Every detail can be customized right down to the distance between the stitches and the length of each stitch.
I created my simple applique flower and drew a rectangle around the flower – the same size as the block. This is a quick project so my block is 6″ square. Here’s how to do it: select the flower, right click and Create Outline. Set the distance to zero. Select the outline and the run stitch rectangle and touch the Combine tool (paper clip).
Next, play with a few of the features after selecting the combined outlines. I chose Texture, Stipple and Echo for my first three trials.
I’d love to know what background you prefer. Do you like the Texture block?
Or the Echo?
