Using the Thread Tools in EQ7
After you’ve completed your quilt top, you still need to figure out how to quilt it! You can use EQ7 to plan your quilting motifs too. The Thread tools allow you to customize your thread settings for just the right look.
On the Quilt Worktable, click and hold on the Set Thread tool to make the flyout menu will appear. There are three options for the Set Thread tool:
Brush Thread – sets thread one quilting line at a time
Spray Thread – sets thread in all of the similarly colored quilting lines in a block at once
Swap Thread – sets thread in all quilting lines on the quilt at once
Set the thread properties in the Sketchbook Thread palette. Put a check in the box for the property you want to change.
After choosing your thread properties, click directly on the quilting motif you’d like to apply the properties to. You may need to refresh the screen to see the changes.
Use a variety of thread colors, styles, and weights to customize your quilting designs!
