Now that you’ve finished your block from the blog hop let’s put it in the quilt.

Step 1 – Select a Pre-made Quilt Layout
Open the file for the block you want to work with. I’m working with my Summer Piglet block from the blog hop but any block will work.
Open LIBRARIES>LAYOUT LIBRARY>BASICS BY STYLE>MEDALLIONS HORIZONTAL>HORIZONTAL-CENTER MEDALLIONS 21. Add this to your Sketchbook.
Step 2 – Place Quilt on Worktable
Open Sketchbook and place the quilt on the worktable.
Step 3 – Add Center Block
The block was drawn 10 x 10 so we have to resize it to fit.
Step 4 – Adjust Block
At the top of the screen set the block size to 24 x 24.
Grab the block and move it in to place (set point should read 12 x 12)
Save to Sketchbook.
Step 5 – Color
How easy peezy was that!
How To Print Patterns
Step 6 – Print for Hand Applique
Open FILE>PRINT>TEMPLATES. Skip to step 8 to adjust templates before printing.
Step 7 – Reverse Templates for Fusible Applique
If you are doing fusible applique you need to follow a few more steps since the templates need to be printed in reverse.
Step 8 – Adjust Templates Before Printing
Since the original piglet was drawn in EasyDraw + Patchdraw it will include the background block as a template. I like to rotary cut my pieces so I will delete these from the templates to save paper.
Click DELETE at the top of the screen then click the shape you want to delete (both background pieces). They will turn red.
Click the DELETE key on your keyboard to remove it permanently.
When ready click PRINT.
Step 9 – Print the Rest of the Quilt
Use the Pick Tool and click on the other blocks in the quilt. Open PRINT>ROTARY CUTTING to get their measurements.
You will find yardage under PRINT>FABRIC YARDAGE.
Enjoy Your Quilt!
