So, September and October can be a bit dodgy posting regularly. I’m learning how to use the Floriani Total Control U digitizing software. A friend asked me for some help with a bit of digitizing. I’d imported a photo into FTCU and told the software to do it’s thing. I couldn’t remember what I did. Well hello very popular search engine! Looky what I found. Getting Started with FTCU, complete with the solution. The internet has everything.
Now onto the Block. Spirals seem to be the thing, at least for the center, and spiraling out, well, kind of.
Once the spirals were echoed once I wanted to keep the outward moving feel.
The video shows the feather work that continues out.
I’m still learning how to use the mouse and the touchscreen to draw on images. There’s a good feel for what the rest of the quilting will look like.
And here we go with a multi block piece. I do have more kaleidoscope pieces to cut and make into something special.
This coming week will see me preparing for the Dutchess Heritage Celebration, working on Floriani projects, and getting two quilts pieced for Quilt Market.
Oh so you know I have a Sizzix. For anyone who doesn’t like the cutting process, or who has physical issues that limit their ability to cut fabric. Ebony Love of Love Bug Studios has some new dies she’d like to get made. And this quilter would love the dies because the quilts are gorgeous! She’s got a kickstarter campaign to raise the funds. FYI, a kickstarter is akin to a stock IPO on the stock exchange, a way of raising funds to get some work accomplished. What I love about this kickstarter is this allows all of us to benefit from Ebony’s creativity and damn hard work.
