  2. I just created a new circle/cog design to complement the string pieced circles in a baby quilt. Would you like to see how to draft these quilting designs using Art and Stitch? There is a free video tutorial on my blog post this week. Along with free pdfs of the quilting designs. This one would be very doable (even without a computerized machine). Check out my blog post. http://www.onpointquilter.com/blog/quilted-cogs-a-modern-quilting-design.
  3. Snow Day

    I just had to share. My Snow Day quilt is featured in the current issue of Fons and Porter Love of Quilting. I also designed a series of quilting designs for this in Art and Stitch. These designs were digitized and quilted on my APQS Millennium with Intelliquilter. They are perfect for your next snow quilt. http://www.onpointquilter.com/blog/snow-day Kari Schell APQS Millennium with Intelliquilter
  4. I've been working on an Elsa and Anna panel quilt this past month. This weeks post was about how I am planning to quilt this. Lot's of Art and Stitch information in my blog post this week. I even am offering a free Art and Stitch file of my Snowflake Meander pattern. (For those without computerized systems, you can get a free pdf of my design as well.) There is a video showing how I created the design using Meander Anything in Art and Stitch. I also provided information on a custom option as well. And be sure to check out all the wonderful submissions for the Snowflake block exchange that was offered to Art and Stitch users. There were 44 submissions! They are definitely worth viewing. http://www.onpointquilter.com/blog/elsa-and-anna-part-4 Kari Schell APQS Millennium with Intelliquilter Certified Art and Stitch Instructor On Point Quilter
  5. Just ordered my IQ and it's due to be installed in about a month. Yeeeee!!!! I'm very excited about it. But I've been looking online and lots of places sell already digitized designs and I know I can trace my designs on the IQ, but I'm just wondering about some of the software available to create my own digitized designs. Does anyone have a favorite? I've seen youtube video and other posts for Art & Stitch, Pro-Q, and another one that I forgot to write down. Anything special you think I should know or consider? Is it worth the expense? Also, I've seen a couple of systems for sale as either used or 'came with my LA, but never used'. I also recall reading somewhere that if you purchase used software (even if it was never opened and installed), it won't work right because it cannot be registered to a new computer. Is that true? Any info/ advice/ opinions etc., would be tremendously helpful and much appreciated. Thanks, Lora.
  6. Have you been enjoying the latest version of Art and Stitch? If you want an excuse to play, I am looking for bloggers to create ideas about how they would quilt my Irish Eyes quilt top. I would love to see what you come up with. I created some ideas of my own which are presented on my blog this week. I'm also providing a free Art and Stitch file for the motif I developed for the quilt. Check out the blog and the free file at http://www.onpointquilter.com/1/post/2014/04/party-time.html Art and Stitch is not required. Feel free to suggest a favorite pantograph or use Electric Quilt or other software to draft your ideas. Kari Schell www.onpointquilter.com
  7. Have you ever been to a "Blog Party"? I participated in a series that Bonnie Hunter did as part of her Celtic Solstice mystery quilt last fall. I found it was a great way to start blogging and provided a way for me to gain exposure for my quilting business. I had so much fun, so I decided I wanted to create one around the concept of "Quilting the Quilt". Over the next week, I am hoping that many of you will develop an idea (or ideas) on how you would quilt top I posted to my blog this week. (This is a quilt that has been languishing in my personal stack of unquilted tops for at least a decade.) From April 12-18th, post an idea on your blog and link to my blog. I'm really hoping you all come to my party! This week I am also offer a couple of mini-tutorials on how you can bring an image into either Art and Stitch or Electric Quilt as the start of your project. More information on all of this can be found at the following link. http://www.onpointquilter.com/1/post/2014/04/quilting-the-quilt-blog-party.html Hope to see you all soon.
