    To put a block (or blocks) into a border, choose a
    block you want to use in the border, from the block library and add it into your sketchbook .

    Open the quilt you are working on, and go to Borders in the lower left tab, dial in width, and number of blocks per border, this can be altered, once you have seen the effect when you put the block in.

    Go back to layer one tab and move the block you chose from your sketchbook into your borders. If you don't like the look of it,perhaps because it is too stretched out, or too squashed, go back to the border tab, and alter the width of border, or number of blocks, until you get the effect you want. That should do it.

    I have the embroidery module for my Bernina, and didn't use it for two years. I wasn't all that bothered, because I had a lot of built in fancy stitches, and thought they would keep my happy, plus it had so much on it compared to my previous machine, I wanted to get the hang of using it before trying the embroidery. When I did, the handbook could have been written in a foreign language as far as I was concerned. So frustrating, but it assumed that I knew more from the computing point of view than I did.

    Eventually, I went on a one day workshop which was worth its money in gold as far as I was concerned. I learned how to work the module, how to get a built in programme from laptop to machine and stitch it. I also learned how to get free designs from the internet into laptop and then to machine for stitching.

    I was away! To start with, I downloaded every free design I could find, then gradually began to buy a few. I am a happy bunny now.

    It seems as if there is some interest. Read on page two, the answer we got from Admin about a possible new section. He is working on a tagging system that might help us to keep track of amy posts re the software, embroidery and possible longarm posts we would be interested in. That might help, otherwise, he isn't all that keen to make a new section.

    I would love to see a EQ thread. I have to read the manual every time I use it. Also embroidery would be great. I have two embroidery machines and would love to get inspired again.
