This week has flown by. I've been relatively quiet this week, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy with quilty projects. The project for the week was to teach myself to write a PDF quilt pattern. This is a picture of a typical new project plan. First I draw it up in EQ, and then start scribbling measurements, cutting directions and so on. On the flip-side of the large white paper is the printout of the quilt, it to has measurements and scribbles. You can also see that I'm auditioning some ugly fabrics for the back. What better way to get rid of fabrics you don't really like.
Two days and two swollen ankles(from sitting so much) I finally have somewhat figured out how to use EQ7, MS Word and an illustrator program to write a pattern.
So here's my question to you. Do you prefer free online tutorials or do you prefer a free PDF that can be printed or saved?
The Traveling stash box will be on the road soon, it has a long way to travel this time. All the way to Texas to visit Cathy at A Quilting Chick! Congrats Cathy! I'm sending you an email!
