    Georgene got a reaction from T_Andrews in Unable to Connect to Quilt Path Error -- Following Windows Update   
    Dawn posted this file to the Quilt Path user group on Face Book and gave me permission to post it here so we could have a link to it. Also, for those who are not on the Face Book Quilt Path group.
    Her message was:
    Error Message: Unable to Connect to Quilt Path-- a recent Windows Update has caused several QP users to receive this error.
    If your tablet is connected to Wi Fi, it may download the Windows Update automatically. Please refer to this attached document for information on resetting your Quilt Path, as well as recommendations for your tablet's operating environment.

    Do your homework. See if you can watch someone work on the two programs. I'm sorry to say I am very disappointed in the fact the "promised" updates to Quilt Path have yet to be received after two years of waiting.  I love my Quilt Path but would like it to do the things that the update is suppose to do that IQ does.

    Maria, that's exactly what I did. Read it all and used the simulator on my desktop. Let's you hit the ground running. Have fun with QP. I love it. It's wonderful to have.

    Georgene got a reaction from dramaqueenB in US Navy -- Quilt for New Captain and CO   
    I just finished this little wall hanging, 25" square.
    A mother made it for her son, a newly promoted US Navy Captain and soon to be Commanding Officer on his ship.
    I used lots of tools when quilting it....all hand guided.
    - Stencil for rope border, using pounce powder and sponge paint brush.
    - For the anchor, I printed an image I found by googling "line drawing, anchor." Then I resized it and traced it in the 4 corners, using Clover mechanical marking pen - silver color.
    - Circle Lord basic unit, squircle for the ship's wheel in the red areas.
    - Deloa's boomerang for the curved cross-hatching.
    And I watched the Rhonda's Rulers video on cross-hatching several times before attempting it. This was my first time for that technique.
    It's not perfect, I had a few glitches when trying to follow lines, but overall I like it. I had a lot of fun working on it. Any technique I tried, I knew I'd only have to do it a few times, unlike a large quilt.
    The mother will be picking it up tomorrow.
    I know one thing, after trying to follow all these lines, I'm sure looking forward to when I can upgrade to the Bliss and Quilt Glide. I'm working towards that for this year.

    The backing roller. If you have a Freddie, you likely have a deluxe table, therefore you would use the 3" diameter.

    My understanding is that the newer version is in the testing stage.
    But your version is the latest that has been released.

    Jane,
    It appears you are thinking through the steps. It may be helpful if you make a quilt sandwich from practice fabric to build your confidence. It will likely be a technique you will use often.
    1) I would set Roll Diameter and Screen Scaling. Let me know if you need help doing this.
    2) Choose Basic. You'll have all the tools you need in Basic.
    3) Pick a pattern that doesn't need to wrap on the sides or have a partial pattern at the top and bottom.
    4) Use the QP ruler for measuring your width to the border and reduce the width by 1/8".
    5) Measure the length to the border before you load the quilt. Reduce the length by 1" for every 40". This helps you end where you want.
    6) Post pictures when you are done.
    You can do this!

    I found something, but not exactly replacing, but at least a good way to square ends of canvas and attach the zippers.

    Hi Leida!
     
    Are you looking to do a software update, or a firmware update?  
     
    Software - When you go into Quilt Path look at the top of the screen.  If it says you are on 3.05.06 you are on the current update.  If you are on a previous update, you will want to call Grace product support to get your update.  
     
    Firmware - If Quilt Path is telling you to update your firmware, it will give you a message with directions when the program opens.  The issue is that you can not see your black box, it is inside your carriage.  If you look at the side of your carriage that has the belt on there is a hole drilled at about the half way point.  Use the eraser end of a pencil and push the button in.  I kind of pulse the pencil to make sure that it registers that I pushed the button.  
     
    In Basic and Advanced mode, you control the width of the pantograph by the number of repeats you enter.  If you tell us more about the issue you are running into we might be able to come up with a workaround for you.  
     
    As Linda stated, there is a very active, private Facebook group for Quilt Path.  If you are Facebook friends with any APQS dealer they should be able to invite you to the the group.   Or you can private message me with your email address and I will send you an invite.

    Ditto Debbie above. I love it and use it almost exclusively -- the Select and Deluxe weight.
    I have even used the the thinner Request weight on quilts with flannel on top and bottom with no problem.

    It's called screen scaling in QP. It's in the manual.
    It's also here.
