In yesterday’s post, I started creating letter blocks for a name on the Winnie the Pooh quilt. When I created the letter block in My Design Center, I wasn’t sure what colors I wanted to use for stitch-out. The Color Shuffle feature of the Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2 helped me audition thread colors on the screen before stitching out the block. Here’s how…
1. Select Embroidery and recall the letter block you created; touch OK.
2. Touch Edit.
3. Touch Color Palette, then Color Shuffling.
Here you have a choice of Random, Gradient, Vivid or Soft. I’ll choose Random.
You can also choose Auto or Manual. Auto lets the machine do the work and displays a variety of color choices automatically. Manual lets you narrow down the colors you want to use.
4. Let’s pick Red and Yellow and touch OK. The Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2 sorts through the colors and displays a variety of choices for you to pick from using the colors you selected.
5. When you see a color choice you like, select it.
6. If you see several choices you like, touch the heart beside the color choice, and your favorites will be saved, then narrowed down to those you like.
Touch Refresh to see more choices.
7. Once you settle on thread colors, touch OK to move to Embroidery.
8. Stitch out the design.
9. Trim block to size.
Note: The Color Shuffle feature can be used to audition thread colors on any embroidery design.
