I am having one of THOSE kinds of days here. This is not the blog post I had intended to write. I had intended to write one about my idea for quilting large pattern fabrics BUT I picked a fabric with a black background. These do NOT photograph well and it was a total pain to try and show what I was attempting…..SO, I’m looking for a little feedback on something else.
I use Photoshop Elements (poorman’s Photoshop is what I call it) to design quilts ALL the time. I was thinking with all the wonderful talent I see out there on the Yahoo and FLCKR groups, you guys might like to learn a few of my tricks on doing this. Here is a quick overview of my latest project.
Here I have my little quilt Miss Belle.
I thought it might be fun to see if I could use this funky border technique in a larger quilt. So I removed the color (my new project is bright, but you could have guessed that) so it wouldn't be distracting.
And I substituted a new block (see this week’s Design Wall post)
And then I started messing with layouts. All without taking one single stitch, mind you.
So, here the part where I ask for feedback, would you guys be interested in learning to do these sorts of manipulations in Photoshop Elements? I also have a bunch of other tricks I use for designing as well.
AND, which setting do you like best: on point? Straight? Please let me know…THANKS
