Designing Quilts On Computer

Using Paint

Part 1

I don't use a quilt design program to design my quilts. I use the version of Paint that comes with Windows XP. It has its limitations but it is an easy way to get practice designing.

Let me show you what I do. (If you have a different version of Paint, the exact procedure may be a little different from what follows, but the basic idea will still be the same)

Another Look At Weyburn

Brenda King sent me a smilebox for participating in the Weyburn quilt show. I'd never even heard of a smilebox before let alone received one. I thought you might like to see this one: smilebox

This Is Me

In Weyburn Saskatchewan

Linda and I just got back from Weyburn Saskatchewan, where every 2 years the Weyburn Crocus Quilters put on a quilt show.

We had a great time and were impressed by the wonderful quilts we saw and the wonderful quilters we met.

A Quick Update

A month ago I showed you this quilt (On The Road to Weyburn) while my wife was still working on it and before it had borders. I thought you might like to see it finished.
