Last week, blog reader Kay asked for some help in Inspirations’ My Quilt Embellisher. It’s a popular software program and easy to use. You can design custom quilting for an 8-point star in just a couple of steps. Follow along to learn how.
Click on the Block Library icon. Go to Eight Point Star and select Arrow Star. Click OK.
Select the white diamonds in the center of the block. Right click on a color chip in the tray (bottom of the screen) to change the color of the diamonds.
We’ll start by filling the negative space with stippling, In the sequence view, select the remaining white shapes (red box) and click on the Stippling icon (red arrow). In the Properties Box, change the Stippling style to Hilbert (green arrow).
To decorate the eight points, use the art tool to draw a diamond. Size the diamond to fill one of the star points.
Select the diamond and click on the Contour tool.
Copy and paste the Contour diamond to fill the star.
Save the design. That was easy, wouldn’t you agree?
