Class Descriptions

Panto Fun - Editing for a Customized Look Dream it up and there is probably a way to design it. We will review the different panto modes and how to decide which mode to use for the outcome you want. We will set up several different types of pantos and use the many editing functions to adjust panto rows, remove or add gap, balance pattern across the quilt top, wrap rows vertically and horizontally, and create custom panto designs using QM continuous line or purchased E2E patterns. Borders - Getting Started The Gold Subcrtiption Border feature will design four different border styles. Learn how easy it is to design, edit and customize for a perfect look. This class will cover two of the styles: border with corner and border with corner stone and offer tips for perfect design and stitching, turning the quilt and completing the side borders. No fear of stitching border patterns after this class. MItered corner border will be covered in another class. If you want to see how Borders works but do not have the Gold Subscription, the device can be put into demo mode by accessing Try Other Product Tiers (bottom right of Home screen) > Click on Gold at the top of the screen. PatternCAD Intro PatternCAD is a powerful portion of Quiltmagine that allows you to edit patterns, combine, and create patterns using its many features. This class will introduce the student to the working screen, the buttons commonly used, and tips for using PatternCAD. We will create several projects during the class which you can save and stitch later. Future PatternCAD classes will expand from this foundation. If using a touch screen device, please connect a mouse to the device. Using your finger or styless is not accurate enough and does not work well. More PatternCAD After learning the basics in the PatternCAD Intro class, this class will dig deeper into other functions in PatternCAD. In a series of hands-on projects, you will tackle more creative designs and even create your own continuous line design repeats. Design Unique Borders & Sashing Using Pantograph Customize a quilt with borders and sashings you design. Using patterns and shapes already in Quiltmagine, learn how to use features built into Pantograph to design your own unique borders and sashings. Once you know the techniques used, you will have fun creating using both Quiltmagine patterns and purchased patterns. Fun With QuiltCAD QuiltCAD has functions beyond creating a quilt top layout. Learn how to use other design functions in QuiltCAD to create block patterns and with a few simple editing steps in PatternCAD, combine and stitch as one pattern. We will also work with other features to design interesting and unique borders. Beyond the design aspect, we will create a simple quilt top, add designs, and even use QuiltCAD features to make the designs unique. Power Panto The 2019 update to QCT and 2020 to Quiltmagine offers an even easier method for designing a pantograph, plus a new, faster and more accurate method for stitching out pantos in zones. The design process has been simplified and produces beautiful results (one pattern only). Stitching pantos designs has changed with the new procedure called zones. This method starts with a new type of placement and stitching, perhaps several rows at a time that are within a zone. This update brings new buttons, new terminolgy, and methods. This class will teach the Power Panto mode as well as the new “zone” stitching method, the new buttons, terms, and mthods that are found in Power Panto. Except for sewing in zomes, the other panto modes remain the same. Once you understand how Power Panto and Zone stitching functions, you will really enjoy the accuracy of sewing pantos with QM/QCT.
