EQ Mini: Horizontal Strip Layout Settings

Horizontal Strip layouts are made up of long horizontal pieced or unpieced “strips.”

The focused strip appears in gray. Click directly on the strip you want to adjust, or use the arrow clickers in the palette to select a strip. After you have selected a strip, you can adjust the size and style of the strip. You can also duplicate or delete it. Clicking Add will add a new strip to the bottom of your quilt. Insert will place the new strip above the focused strip. When Clone selected strip is checked, the next strip you add or insert will be exactly like the focused strip. Clicking Delete will delete the focused strip.

The width of each strip can be adjusted individually, but all strips must be the same length. Use the slider bars for adjusting the size of the strips. The style of each strip can be adjusted individually.
