Default Affairs of the Heart - machine embroidery

I really want to learn how to use my Scan-N-Cut for doing applique with my embroidery machine.
I have the book for Affairs of the Heart and have done some both hand applique and machine applique, and I've seen pictures of it done with the embroidery machine.

So I bought the digitized software and figure this will be a good way to learn to use the ScanNCut. It will "read" the applique stitch lines and convert them to cutting lines for me. The package should arrive by Friday, so it will be play time come this weekend!

What a beautiful design! What EMB machine are you using?

Try a sample cut first as you may need to " + " the line by 1 or 2 on the SNC machine. I love using the machine to cut the intricate shapes for applique. Have you watched the tutorials for applique?

I'm learning the machine too. You reminded me that I have the owls EMB designs and hope to get them done someday.

I love my digitizing software! I have used so many different designs for appliques on a quilt, including appliques for a crazy quilt. To be able to make my own appliques from a picture and turn it into a piece in a quilt is so much fun.

Rhonda, I have a Babylock Destiny with the DII upgrade kit installed. The main part of the upgrade was the 9.5 x 9.5 hoop.

I was watching one tutorial and they suggested always increasing the design by 1mm before cutting.

I have the SNC2, at the class they had the new one and it now will automatically set the depth of the cutter for you. That would be real neat to have.

I bought the level that has the wireless router connection. Not sure if that will be a big plus or not, as I still have to use a USB to transfer from my embroidery machine to the ScanNCut as my embroidery machine does not hook to my wireless router

Please tell us how it goes. I also have a ScanNCut and an embroidery machine and I want to try cutting my applique shapes.

As I'm learning too, i'd ask you to share some feedback! How is it going?
As for connection, it seems to be strange. Have you tried to contact Babylock's support?

Hi Pat,

I messed around with it a bit, the problem is that all the shapes that used the same thread color imported in as one design, so I can't move them around to save fabric. I either need to learn how to seperate them, or see if I can import something different that will come in as single units. I'm working on my swap blocks right now so it's on the back burner.

As for my machine -I didn't think it had the capabilities to connect, so I've not looked into it. Everything I've read has said to transfer the designs to a USB stick and plug that into the machine. I doubt the sewing machine would link directly to my PC - normally they hook to a cloud service and you upload designs to that, then download them to your machine. That is how the ScanNCut works if I want to import things that way. And at that point it's easier to put them on the USB stick.
