EQ7 tutorial Tuesday–Writing on your quilt

beaquiltersEQ7tutorialtuesday

I don’t think I’ve shown how to WRITE on your quilt for appliqueing

It’s actually very easy!

Open up a quilt you want to write on.

This one is my “Chicks Rule!” quilt that was in McCall’s a few years ago

On Layer 2

You’ll see a button called “Set Applique text”

(if the button is not there, click the tiny arrow at the bottom of the column to show more buttons to add)

image

Once you click on it, you have to pick what typeface/font you want to use

image

pick a font and size you want

image

Then hold sown SHIFT and drag a box where you want to type something and write your word(s)

image

You can just click on it and change the font and size until you have it right

image

image

Then use the spray can or paint brush to color in the letters/words

image

you can use the adjust button to stretch it out too

image

image

and use the CENTER buttons to center the words

image

you can also rotate the words

image

image

Now select the words with the black arrow and you can then print templates

image

pretty simple!!

Have fun
