    I bought this software a few months ago and I can't seem to figure out how to zoom in on things. I'm trying to re-color the original quilt in Pinks and Browns. I can color each block individually just fine, but when I view the whole quilt and want to make a small change I can't zoom in. Has anyone else had this problem or would know how to fix it? Any help with this software would be a great help to me!


    Thank you!

    Sammy, I'm not sure if this answers your question, but I recolored by copying the block from the library, placing it in the sketchbook. Press the edit key once its in the sketchbook and you'll get the pop up window with color options. I'm not sure about a zoom, but it will enlarge the single block for you.
    Be sure to make a paper copy of your quilt when you've designed it, just in case.
    Best Wishes,

    Hi Retro!
    Yes, I've been doing that to color each block, and that's working perfectly. I'm just trying to figure out if there's an easier way to try and color in those tiny little sashing pieces and those little tiny squares.


    I love your blog! I will be going back to the start whenever I am able to start my DJ. It will be so much help!

    SammyKatt, thank you! I didn't plan mine out in the computer, but I'm sure one of the quilters around would be helpful in that area. If you ask on one of the Jane Stickle threads, you may have more luck. I drew mine out on a copy of the chart in the book.

    By the way, if you are interested, there's a bunch of blog giveaways that start tonigh. Details are posted on the current entry on my blog.
