Creating Appliques #3 in Stitch Artist

So I started out with 3 Appliques shapes and digitized them as Appliques.
Each Shape had 3 color stops.
Total of 9 Color Stops for all 3 shapes.
Saved the design to remove the overlapped stitches.
Then did a Color Sort
Ended up with 5 color changes for the whole design of 3 appliques.
All the Position stitches will stitch out first for all 3.
Then the Material Tack down stitch will stitch for all 3
And then the Final Satin Finishing Stitch will stitch for all 3.

If I had made the Final Satin Stitch for all 3 Appliques the same color then when I did the Color Sort I would have ended up with only 3 color changes for the whole design.

I made the Final Satin Stitch for each Applique a different color on purpose so you could see what Color Sort would do if those stitches where different colors!

See my last and final picture for this adventure! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Does any of this make sense to you???

Thank you Lisa! this makes a lot of sense to me, I try to use color sort often, I don't like so many color changes when I embroider if possible.
