In Inspiration’s software (Perfect Embroidery Pro, My Quilt Embellisher and more) there’s a speedy method to transform a shape into a satin frame. Follow along in your software.
The satin stitches fill the star instead of outlining the star. Definitely not the result we wanted. It’s easy to start over. Just click on the Undo key. Select the star, right click and select Create Outline. The default setting .08”, that’s fine for this exercise. Click OK.
There’s your frame! It’s so easy, give it a try.
