First Day

Pattern Editing and Design Creation – In this class we will spend a little time on the editing tools, split, smooth, distort, shape shift and magnet tool. The main focus will be to teach you how to use tools incorporated in the IQ to Create your own designs, such as Pearls, a blanket stitch, feathered wreaths, etc.

Lunch Break

Conquering the No Sew Zones – In this class you will learn different approaches to the No Sew Zone and how to handle the draw-in that occurs, so that your block placement will be precise. You will also learn how to “Frame” your no sew zones, how to split and combine patterns, etc.

Tech Tips – In this hour we will talk about things like changing drive wheels, sensor wheels, removing the motors, how to adjust the adjusting brackets for aligning the motors, checking the wiring if you receive communication errors, etc.

Second Day

Borders – We will start off with simple “Dead end” borders, progressing to borders that turn the corner, Symmetrical or Mirror Imaged borders, and finally, those dreaded wide borders that need extra fill. We will work with pattern repeat and path pattern. I will show you how to stitch the sides without having to “turn the quilt”. You will learn how to deal with the draw in (shrinkage) and make your designs match up perfectly. (Stitch out will be done in custom class)

Lunch break

Custom Quilting - We will stitch out a sampler quilt and put into use all of the techniques you have learned in this workshop. Along with using background fills, echoing, SID, and Line pattern. This is also a great time to ask those questions you may have to help you move from only doing Pantos and use more of the tools in your IQ toolbox!
