Features of the IQ Computerized System

When stitching around applique you can tell IQ to drop in background fillers or crosshatching behind the applique but not to stitch on the applique

One simple button will switch from computerized to manual mode. No clamps to flip.

We normally get a handful of updates a year to the software all all come included with your purchase. You can see all of the updates that have rolled out each year on the Intelliquilter website.

Easily stretch and manipulate border designs down the sides of a quilt (even wonky ones!) all without ever turning a quilt! Match up your corners, bottom borders and sides with only a few buttons to push. Continuous borders have never been easier!

Thorough and extensive help provided on every screen explaining exactly what every button and setting will do.

Your education is vital. When you purchase from Quilted Joy you get access to over 6 hours of HD video instruction complete with downloadable patterns. The lessons are broken down into 10 minute chunks so they can be updated as the software changes. That way your training is always evergreen.

IQ moves your longarm at one continuous rate of speed. Because of that there is no need to engage your APQS stitch regulator. By leaving it off you preserve the life of your regulator while also getting perfectly even stitches from your IQ. 

Your motors come with obstruction detection units mounted on them so you can walk away from your machine without worry. These units will bring everything to a halt should the movement of your IQ become impeded in any way. For example, if you have a popped seam and your hopping foot gets caught in the seam, your IQ will stop. Never rip a quilt again!

Click and drag to pull out repeats of a pattern so you can follow the quilt’s seams precisely in your borders even with inconsistencies in the piecing. Training videos on this feature can be found here

There’s no giant computer tower or separate monitor. The entire system runs off a lightweight tablet that mounts to the nose of your machine.

IQ uses friction wheels to push and pull the machine along the table. No belts needed and no tightening of belts over time required.

There are many ways to do the same thing and our intuitive menus allow you to fell confident incredibly quickly.

Easily manipulate patterns using built in editing to copy, repeat, combine, rotate, scale

Setting up an all over, edge to edge pantograph couldn’t be simpler. Edit layouts with offset, interlocking, flipping and clipping at borders

Record the movement of the machine as a path and stitch out your recording. Or, use the geometric catalog to create your own designs.

Trace over a printed paper pantograph with your machine to record it for stitching. Easily convert all of your existing paper patterns to a digitized file so you can stitch them on your projects.

The IQ community and family of dealers produces mountains of training videos. You can see them over at this website to learn more about specific features of IQ.

Installation Kits Needed For APQS Bliss and Hydraulic Lifts


Because Bliss moves so easily you will need a bracket for your carriage so you can maintain accuracy while running at very high rates of speed.


Your hydraulic lift will need to be hung from your table differently so as not to impede the movement of the IQ rollers.
