How to Use This Blog

Since we have lots and lots of videos here, you will need to know the best way of finding what you are looking for. Each post has the video(s) of the topic it is about. Sometimes there will be more than one video that is a continuation of the previous one. These videos will be posted together within the same post. To find what you are looking for, either use the search box or the list of categories posted in the right column.

The IQ system is constantly evolving, so please keep in mind that some of the older videos may show features that have been replaced by newer ones, or buttons that have changed position or names. However, the videos have not been removed because the methods demonstrated are still valid.

Borders with Corner Patterns

In this video we will work with setting in corner sections along with borders. I've also included a short section on working with the on-screen measurement tool. Update: This video was made before we had the line pattern feature. Please see that video to get an alternative method of working with borders. Produced by: Linda Lawson Part 1 Part 2

Placing Motifs in Blocks

Placing motifs in blocks. This is an older video with a 2007 version of the software. Additional features have been added over the years so now after touching, add/edit block a page will appear with more choices. In this case, I would have touched standard block on that page, then mark on quilt on the next page.
This is a simple motif so marking all the blocks and then placing all the patterns before stitching would probably give acceptable results. For more intricate patterns that will draw up the fabric, I would mark a block, edit the pattern then immediately stitch it before working on the next block.
