Fan Pattern features & inspiration

Learn all the fan pattern features and be inspired to build your personal pattern library

Course Summary

The fan pattern feature on our Intelliquilter systems is a versatile and powerful tool that allows you to create a wide variety of unique and new designs.

It has many facets, and we will guide you through the different aspects and how to use them effectively to build your library of designs.  

One of the main uses of the fan pattern feature that I use a lot, is for creating simple background fills behind applique or stitchery in a block.  The fan pattern feature combined with simple geometric lines provides you with endless possibilities for this purpose alone! You can adjust the density and spacing of the pattern to achieve your desired effect.    

In addition to background fills, the fan pattern feature can also be used to create new block patterns. By combining different angles and sizes, you can easily transform a basic block into a visually stunning design. This allows you to add depth and dimension to your quilts and bring your creative vision to life.

The fan pattern feature is not limited to individual blocks or backgrounds; it can also be used to create frames and edge-to-edge designs. With just a few clicks, you can generate beautiful borders and borders that seamlessly blend into your quilt's overall design. This feature is particularly useful for adding a finishing touch to your quilting projects.  

By exploring the fan pattern feature and experimenting with different settings, you can expand your design possibilities and create unique and eye-catching quilts.  The only limit is your imagination! So, whether you're a beginner looking to enhance your quilting skills or an experienced quilter wanting to take your designs to the next level, the fan pattern feature on our Intelliquilter systems is sure to become one of your favorite tools.  Start exploring its capabilities today and unlock a world of creativity
