4D™QuiltDesign Creator

This wonderful new software is the perfect compliment for the embroidery machine or frame quilter. Extraordinary quilting designs become a reality

Step by step wizards - Lead you through composing a block element or border . Trace a picture, use included designs or start with a clear palette.

Craft your own embroidery or robot quilting designs. - Use any of the 50 shapes, 112 MiniPics or over 30 pre-made quilting designs to begin your quilting design. Or simply draw what you imagine. Rotate or reflect any of these shapes and watch your design transform before your eyes. The filmstrip helps you edit your designs easily. Move elements to change stitching order and look.


Set an area to be filled automatically with traditional quilting patterns such as Stipple, Cross-Hatch or Parallel lines. Vary the line spacing to create different effects.

Use small quilting motifs to create your own motif fill. Use one of the 53 motif patterns included for your quilt robot or choose from 53 smaller motif patterns made especially for use with your embroidery machine. And you don't need to stop with just one motif! Choose a second motif and alternate lines in your fill area. Just for fun write your name or draw a small picture. Turn these into motifs and use in your unique quilt design.

A line quilting design is no longer just a line with the 4D™Quilt Design Creator. Simply change the line's property. Create up to 5 parallel lines in one click. Or adjust to a motif line. Choose from flowers & leaves, scrolls,geometric or pictures.

Borders are effortless with 'Encore'. Place one quilting design in your specified work area and then click Encore. This function places the approriate number of quilting designs in the work area to make the perfect border.

Add lettering to any quilt. 4D™QuiltDesign Creator will take lettering from most TrueType® or OpenType® fonts on your computer and change it to a quilting design automatically. Create text with stipple,crosshatch or other fills. Even use the special quilting motifs as outlines.

Watch your quilting design "stitch out" with the design player. The Design Player "stitches" on your computer screen so you know just how your design will sew.

4D™QuiltDesign Creator Vision helps you visualise your finished quilt. Photograph your quilt and import the file through the wizard. Place your quilting designs on your own quilt background and see how it will look. Adjust the placement of designs until you like your finished product and then print out as a template!
