So earlier this month (9th March), our multi-talented @lizafrica did a write up on the Lemoyne Star block and using Quilt Block Advisor. We also featured this new AcuSpark App this week on Monday 16th March with a link to a video with Janome America spokesperson, Kimberly Einmo, so it seems that we are all on the same page! Ed.
Liz and I were thinking about the same topic (unbeknownst to one another lol), so I have a great video for you to see it in action (see below for video link).
Have you tried the AcuSpark App yet? It was created as a companion for the Janome Continental M7 machine, but is also very useful for other models. It has so much information in it. It’s almost like a digital manual!
You can see info about machine functions (which are pretty universal across the range of Janome machines), watch tutorial videos on basic operations, and so much more!
To find the Quilt Block Advisor in the app, tap on “General Instructions & Tips”, then tap “Other” on the bottom right (there is a machine icon there). Scroll down to “Quilting” and there you can choose which block to look at.
Then I tapped Lemon Star, and saw all of the instructions.
You can also use the Quilt Block Advisor on your computer if you have purchased the Janome Continental M7. Click here to see a demo of the Quilt Block Advisor software. It is installed on your PC when you use the PC Application pack which is supplied with the machine.
I grabbed a couple of pics from the video to show you, because it’s really hard to video and sew and take pictures all at the same time lol.
Until next time,
