I set out to do the quilting of this baby quilt for the OMG for June and I did it. Originally, I thought circular quilting would be perfect for this quilt. As much as I like the circular quilting, I wanted to do something different for this one.
What I'm really excited to share today is this tool that helped me do it. I have an iPad and have been using the photo editing program for most of my photos for my blog. In the photo editing program, there is a function called Markup which allows you to add text and do some doodling to the photo. I have found it to be very useful to help me decide on how I want to quilt this quilt. Let's look at the following pictures.
I thoroughly enjoy the process of quilt making. Sometimes I find myself stuck on how to quilt the tops that I made. In the past I would insert the quilt photo to a word document and print it out on paper. Then I would use pencil to draw the quilting design to help me make a decision. Using the photo editing program on the iPad simplifies things for me. I was able to doodle with my finger how I wanted to do the quilting. It's not perfect but it really helped me to visualize the quilting design. As you can see, I decided to go with the design in the first photo.
Now that the quilting is done, tomorrow is the day for binding. If this is new to you as it's to me, I hope this info. will help you.
