|I have a design I am trying to do on a customers quilt and need to find a way to make a new start and end point on the design. It starts with a longer stitch running into the design and it makes a big opening before the designs actually starts and the same with the end so I want to cut the starting and ending points and can not figure out how to do that. I can only crop top of bottom but can we crop off the sides as well? The only other thing I can figure out is to start the design way before the quilt starts, like on the extra batting but I do not have enough room on the sides to do this. If I leave the design as is there is too much empty space at the beg. of the quilt and too much empty space at the end. I hope I am making this clear. The top half of the design has quilting but the bottom portion of the design has an open area. Thanks, Debi|

|Debi, I hope someone more knowledgeable answers your question because I only very vaguely know about this. I know it's too late but next time you choose a design, consider this issue. I avoid these patterns like the plague. Next, I think cropping is out because the HQ will still stitch where it has to 'jump' to the next part of the pattern. I would make another pattern using your height and width but with two more repeats. Then I would set a 'new start point' in the beginning of the pass and hit pause or emergency stop at the end. Since I can't tell you the correct order to set the new start point, it would be best to call HQ tomorrow. This answer shows you what a dummy I am, but I hope it helps.|
