My Show and Tell…

stbs-quilt-layout-lesson-pngTalk about flopping… this is the biggest one yet… I just didn’t finish, period, end of story, so instead I created tutorials to help you with your layouts. Yesterday I posted the lesson for Electric Quilt here, and today I’ve posted one for those of you who may not own any quilting software. Yes, we have all the old-fashioned ways to do things, but once in awhile those of us who have learned how to use our PC’s may like to play and have some fun on our PC’s by creating a quilt layout.

This lesson uses Inkscape to help you create your layout.

Panels in this lesson were from Northcott Fabrics, they are either due to being released or were just released.

Border Stripes in this lesson were from Windham Fabrics and Wilmington Fabrics.

Rows used in this video were from Tweety Loves Quilting, Creatin In The Sticks, Just Let Me Quilt, Heleen Pinkster, and Seacoast Quilter.
