Perfect Quilt Software Series with Jenny Haskins bringing a touch of magic with every stitch



 

Easy Strip Piecing
Jenny Haskins' Perfect Quilt Expressions
Quilting Software Modules

UPDATE: Discontinued by Jenny Haskins Aug 2014

SEE Quilt-Pro Systems, their software is an excellent replacement because they wrote the Perfect Quilt Expressions Modules.

 

Easy Strip Piecing is simple to use quilt software that calculates how many strips to cut, how wide each strip should be and how many squares or triangles to cut for the block. Then it allows you to print this information out on a chart. Change any block size and Easy Strip Piecing recalculates and prints a new chart for you! Includes 400 traditional quilt blocks.

Easy Strip Piecing

How do you introduce a software program to the quilting market and not have to reinvent the wheel? Jenny Haskins did just that by teaming with Quilt-Pro Systems and reintroducing a wonderful software under her new brand name Perfect Quilt Expressions Quilting Software Modules. This line consists of 5 outstanding modules: Perfect Quilt, Perfect Quilt Express, Easy Strip Piecing, Mariners Compass Collection, and 1200 Classic Foundations.

Easy Strip Piecing is a stand alone 400 block library program (no drawing tools) designed for rotary cutting and strip piecing methods. The interface allows access using a browsing window with pictures.

The blocks can be imported into Perfect Quilt and Quilt-Pro for Windows
Note: When opening in Quilt-Pro a few errors pop-up but eventually it opens.

Draw Tools

No drawing tools.

Learning:

Simple and easy-to-use is the foundation of this program and learning it is no exception. Instinct will lead the user through the program.

Help:

To locate a block by name click the block index button.

block index

Printing block and charts.

Before printing charts and blocks you are allowed to determine measurement choice: English or Metric. This is located under the File Menu.

file menu  for preferences

measurement choices
Select Metric or English Measurements

Double-clicking on your block choice opens the Print Chart Screen shown in the next example.

  • Note the recommended size reference line to help you determine the traditionally used sizes for the block.
  • Note in the print box example that you have the ability to select:
    • finished block size. The program only allows working with a SQUARE block as these are the components for strip piecing half square and quarter square triangles and the accompanying square patches
    • number of blocks to be made.
    • fabric strip length that will be used to cut strips, triangles, and squares.
  • Changing the Size & Fabric Strip Length and Number of blocks will instantly recalculate the Rotary Chart output.

Print Rotary Chart

Select the Preview button to view the Rotary Chart's Piecing & Yardage Recommendations on your computer.

Use the Print button for printout of the Rotary Chart to take to the fabric shop, cutting table and sewing machine.

Use zoom in and out buttons to see more or less on the screen. (See last example and next example.)

print preview
Rotary Chart
includes how many strips, squares & triangles need cut for block(s) & the fabric strips length that was set before previewing the chart is listed.

In the Strip Piecing Chart box, click on the Piecing Diagram Button to see (and print) a piecing diagram of the block. The piecing diagram "explodes" the block to show you how to put it together and also letters each patch. (See next example.)

You can also print out a single reference block per page if desired.

Sharla's Conclusion

If you are traditional quilter who knows how to layout and sew a quilt and all you need is the ability to print out a block and the required yardage and strips, triangles, and squares to create a block, then this program will meet those needs very well.
