I just purchased the accuquilt kit. I am having trouble lining up the hoop sections and keeping the stitching the proper space away from the previous hooping stitches. Should I align the paper template or the plastic template outline with the previous stitching. Has anyone tried this? How do you keep the stippling squares looking continuous?.
The way I do it is to stitch the first section and then tape the template (which I make out of vellum, by the way) that I cut close to the design part so I can put it as close to the previous section as I want, to the quilt. Then I postition the hoop ove this so that the design fits in the grid and when it does, I will tweak it using the edit screen to jog it into the right grid.
