How QuiltBroidery adds stipple quilting around an embroidery design

With the Brother Luminaire Innov-ìs XP1, you could automatically add stipple stitching or echo quilting around an embroidery design. But with the Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2 you can do so much more. I showed you how to use the Brother Magnetic Sash Frame to add some simple stippling on your quilt. Today, I’ll show you how to add some fun embroidery and decorative fill stitches!

The Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2

The Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2 or the Software Upgrade Pack for the Brother Luminaire Innov-ìs XP1 allows you to select from 34 decorative quilting fill stitches, and use QuiltBroidery to automatically add quilting around an embroidery design with one simple step. Let’s have a look.

I’m making a quilt for a new addition to our extended family, so I started by embroidering some quilt blocks. Because we all need more hugs right now, I selected this cute Pooh Bear hugging Piglet design from one of the 192 Disney embroidery designs built into the Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2. The Disney embroidery designs are just a few of the 1300 total built-in embroidery designs on the XP2.

1. From the main screen select Embroidery, D Disney/Pixar designs, Category 03, Design 007, and touch Set.

2. From the Edit screen, select the Fill Selection icon (it looks like stipple) and then access the Decorative Fill stitches. With 35 decorative fills to choose from it was a hard decision, but I selected this curved design in a 5″ x 7″ frame to surround the embroidery design.

3. I adjusted the distance away from the embroidery design that the background fill would start stitching, and the size of the decorative fill stitch – all from the same screen.

4. Touch Embroidery and watch the quilt block stitch out.

I’m so pleased with how this block turned out! My plan is to embroider several more Winnie the Pooh blocks using the built-in designs on the Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2, and turn them into a quilt.

Join me tomorrow when I show you another way to QuiltBroider quilt blocks using the My Design Center, the Brother Brother Luminaire 2 Innov-ìs XP2 and QuiltBroidery!
