Pamela, there are a series of videos on YouTube that will walk you through the basics of Quilt Path use. And if you email me, I can send you an invite to the Facebook Quilt Path Users Group - it's an awesome resource! Welcome to the family!

Just getting started with Quilt Path.  When I start by selecting either block or panto, it asks me to move my head to the upper left corner and press the button, which I do, then I move the head to the lower right corner and press the button.  Then a message box comes up with message "The safe area must first be set in order to use pantostacker."  I thought that was what I just did by identifying the upper left and lower right corners.   What am I missing??

Thanks!

I am shopping for a long arm and want to make all the right choices! choosing between a Gammill and APQS is a tough decision. Since I plan on computerized sewing the software is a factor. Love the Creative Studio Program offered by Gammill. Interested in Intelliquilter too.  But the cost of these is over the top.  Quilt Path is a little lower but looks extremely unfriendly.  Any advice from experienced quilters would be so welcome. Thanks

Pamela, if you haven't already, check out Angela Clark's blog at Thread Waggle Quilting.  You can find it on the APQS owner blogroll under the APQS resources tab.  Check back in her post history.  I think she started Tech Sunday posts in early 2014, and they are all about Quilt Path.  I poured over those and found them really helpful.

 

Like some others have stated, I also checked out the You Tube videos about Quilt Path.

 

I've had my Freddie with Quilt Path for about a year now, and I Quilt Path everything!  If I have to hand guide the machine, it's a rarity.  I've even started drafting my own designs.  At first I used the delivered designs or purchased from one of the many online digital quilting websites.

 

Have fun with your machine, and with Quilt Path.  Expertise will come in time.

Pam,

 

There is going to be a learning curve to any computerized system.  I have have two Quilt Paths and am thinking about adding a third one.  Almost any computerized system can handle edge to edge quilting.   I love that for the price of QP, you can also do custom work.  I do most of my design work in QP too.   It is a surprisingly powerful software.  If you are willing to keep and open mind it is amazing what it can do.
