January 16, 2018. Creative Studio in Stand Alone Mode works great for auditioning Edge to Edge Patterns too. Even with E2E quilting, I always audition in CS before I begin stitching. Sure beats ripping out stitches if I realize too late that I don’t like a pattern or its placement or size.
And you don’t really need a ‘perfect’ image of your quilt top to get a general idea of how a pattern will look.
