Record Free Motion
The Pro version of the Quilter's Creative Touch Software allows you to record and save any free–motion quilted patterns to use or edit later. You can trace a pattern or have the software record your motion to sew or save for a later time. If you make a mistake, you can restart or if you need to pause and edit something, you can with the record option. This advanced feature is the ultimate way to design and record your work.
If you need a design that's not included on the machine, the PatternCAD feature allows you to draw your own plans. You can also edit any of the 200 included patterns already on the software. From simple lines to intricate designs, there are various ways to achieve what's in your imagination. PatternCAD gives you the ability to bring any idea to life and be stitched with Quilter's Creative Touch 5 Pro.
While PatternCAD allows you to edit individual patterns, QuiltCAD enables you to design entire quilt block layouts. You can create intricate arrangements with different blocks throughout your quilt with this feature. You can merge, flip, rotate, and even adjust your blocks' size with this tool.
If you make a mistake or need to fix something, the pattern optimizer has you covered. You can fix breaks in your pattern, adjust start/stop points, and optimize your design aspects. There is also an animate feature that will let you see how your design will stitch and look when it's completed. Now you don't have to worry or second guess yourself about what design you choose and if it'll work with your quilt.
See how your quilt will look before sewing with the print patterns preview feature. You can layout your pattern for your quilt with these printed designs or even use them to trace directly onto your quilt for free-motion sewing. You can choose to print a single pattern, the whole row, or the entire quilt. To use, set your pantograph to print across multiple pages.
The Quilter's Creative Touch 5 Pro, Trace feature, allows you to create patterns from your favorite pictures. Import any photo from your storage into PatternCAD, and you can "trace" it to replicate on your quilt. To use this feature, click as many points as you need to outline your image and apply the design just as any other pattern. Creating detailed portraits and striking prints are now as easy as point, click, and sew.
