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The IQ system is constantly evolving, so please keep in mind that some of the older videos may show features that have been replaced by newer ones, or buttons that have changed position or names.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

Helen's iQ - Trace On Quilt

When adding a block to a custom quilt by defining its outline, we can choose either 'Mark on Quilt' or 'Trace on Quilt'. In this video I show why choosing 'Trace on Quilt' is so useful because not only can you record the outline of a block whilst moving your machine, you can stitch in the ditch at the same time, and then do additional freehand stitching without having to back out to find manual mode, and then realign when you're done. You can also switch to sampling mode (the same as 'Mark on Quilt') to define additional blocks. 'Trace on Quilt' is a very useful page.
