Reversing the Pattern?
« on: 25 February 2012, 21:30:54 »
To facilitate paper piecing, I divided my 18" quilt into four 9" blocks. Two (bottom left and top right) use the same pattern and the other two are the reverse. I drew the first block using QA and sewed two pieces.

Now I need to reverse the pattern and print it backwards (or upside-down) for paper-piecing the other two blocks? I've tried the Symmetry menu but nothing happens.

This is how I got by the problem:  Copied the pattern to Word and reversed it there.   No problem!

Still interested in whether QA can do it.

Thanks for the wonderful app.

Hi Barb,

There is no way to reverse the pattern itself, but you can print in reverse: use the "Mirrored Output" check box in the print dialog to make that choice.
