Pantograph Quilting

The Quilt feature.
And will begin working in PatternCAD (Design & Create Pattern)
Day 3 – We will spend the rest of our time in PatternCAD. 

By the end of Camp you will have touch all parts of the program.   Two of our APQS longarms have Quilt Path installed on them, so we are able to do demo things on a real system.  Most of the class is done with me working on Quilt Class projected on a screen and the campers working on their own copies of the software. 

You will need to bring either your Surface or a laptop with Quilt Path installed on it.   The charging cables for the system you bring and a willingness to learn.

Tech Sunday - Quilt Path Basics Videos

I was trying to think of how to describe how I get pantographs that have circles in them to quilt as circles and not ellipses.  I told Matt, it would be easier to make a video then to try to put it in words.   Which is how I ended up with a new camcorder, my father-in-laws photography tripod and got to learn how to edit video.  I am not sure it if was "easier", but I did get to play with video editing software, so that made my tech brain happy.  

What topic would you like to see covered in my next video?   Post a comment!  I will be picking one of the comments to cover soon.
