Last week, we left off with auditioning crazy quilt stitches on a Dresden plate bloc in My Quilt Embellisher.
If the colors of the appliques on this default Dresden plate are not your favorites, then by all means change them!
Let’s start with the color of the first applique. In the sequence view, you’ll notice the first color is peach, color 14.
Left click on color chip 14 in the thread bar at the bottom of the screen. Select a color from the pop-up thread chart. Click OK.
I selected yellow and now the applique is a bright shade of yellow. You can continue to recolor the applique in this fashion or take it a step further and add fabric for a more realistic look. Select the applique section and click on the Fabric icon at the top tool bar.
You have dozens of fabrics to choose from the library.
Select a fabric, click ok and watch your applique come alive. You can select several applique sections at one time and colorize them as a group – with just one click. Or do it one by one to see a gradual change. You’ll have fun with this!
If you attended our webinar on Tuesday, Sept. 9, I’d like to personally thank you for sharing an evening with Tamara Evans and me. We appreciate your patience as we get our dealer network in place. I know many of you are anxious to receive your update so please know we are working diligently every day to make this happen!
