Use your digital cutter to cut quilt block patches with Inspirations’ My Block Piecer (MBP) . Let me show you how.
GO to the Block Library and select a block. I chose Basic, Nested Triangles. This block features five patches, two patches in fabric A and three patches in fabric B.
Go to the Properties Box and click on the Transform tab. Enter the size of your finished block. My sample is 5” finished – the software will add all necessary seam allowances to each patch. Click Apply.
Select the block and click on the Cutter icon.
Scroll through the list of formats and select the appropriate format for your digital cutter. I selected FCM for the Brother Scan ‘n Cut. The screen shows the first frame, or the two patches for the fabric A.
When you click on Frame 2, you’ll see three patches for fabric B. Click Save.
Select FCM for the Brother Scan ‘n Cut to actually save the files in that format. The software creates a new folder with all of the necessary files. Name the file and select Save.
The software creates a folder and stores the cutting files in that location.
If you are cutting patches for multiple blocks, change the number of repeats on the cutter screen.
How easy was that?
