We used Toolbox to:

  • Modify a previously-digitized design's information for stitching out "just" the 3" Star for use in a quilt piece being created during our store's Quilt Along 2021.

    The 3" Star will be stitched on the project's Background fabric (trimmed to 3 1/2") for placing into the four-outer squares of the 4th-month borders of the Quilt Along project.
