Day 1 (Lunch break 12:00-1:30)
We begin the class with identifying parts of the IQ System with tips on maintenance and repair.
Library Maintenance guides each person in setting up their library by moving designs that will be used in class.
Beginning Panto with Intelliquilter is a fantastic class that will get you more comfortable with your IQ .  9:00 - 12:00 
We begin with the basics including maintaining your IQ. Understanding maintenance allows you fewer interruptions.  I'll walk you through to success with pantographs while at the machine. Choosing great designs will be addressed and I'll explain why. We will also cover advancing the quilt, starting after a stop, adjusting the outside edges, realigning and saving your work so you can begin again later. You will create a quilt map and you will know how to put it in action when you return to your machine.
Quotes from attendees:  "I didn't know there was so much to know about pantographs!" "I was doing everything the hard way."

Let's use our editing functions to make the quilts look great even if the piecing isn't!
