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The IQ system is constantly evolving, so please keep in mind that some of the older videos may show features that have been replaced by newer ones, or buttons that have changed position or names.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.

Cross Hatching with the IQ

One method of doing crosshatching around applique.  It is not fast but does not use a no-sew zone. This video was made before iQ was able to create no-sew zones. In this video, I use line pattern to set the almost continuous path of stitching around a Dresden plate. These two videos together show the whole process of marking then stitching.

Line Pattern for Custom Quilting

How I used Line Pattern to do custom quilting - straight line,SID and continuous curves in one pass across this Friendship Star quilt.
NOTE:. This video shows an earlier version of the iQ software. In this video I go back to my pattern catalogs to choose another pattern. This isn't necessary with the latest software version. We now have a button right on the line pattern page that allows us to toggle through the patterns we are using. See the entry for July 21, 2014 for a demonstration of that feature.

Adding Pantograph Width

This shows you how to extend a panto row when the pattern ends too far inside the edge of the quilt because the wrong width measurement was entered when setting up the quilt or because the quilt shrank more than expected as it was quilted.

Produced by Helen Baczynski.

Adding Length to a Panto

If the quilt is longer than you thought, this shows you how to add a full row in place of a partial row to the bottom of the quilt.

Produced by Helen Baczynski.

Placing Patterns in Multiple Catalogs

I had hoped to sit very picturesquely on a rock over looking Lake Mead but it was impossible to see anything on the screen in the bright sunlight so I had to sit in the back of the car.

This video shows how to organize your pattern catalogs.
