I use my computer a lot to assist me with the design of a quilt.
I have a number of apps that change my image into a more defined pattern to create a fabric image.
For instance, I want to thread paint this picture I took a few days ago. It will be for the charity auction at Houston. The image is big and graphic and I love the texture and the movement of the opposing lines.
I want the image to convey a painterly effect yet recognizing the Texas heritage.
The image below is created in Sketchmee a drawing program for the mac.
I love this image… but maybe it needs to be traditionally red, white and blue. I think some of the definition in the roof is lost.
I love this too but not for this quilt.I would use fine thread, possibly a silk to do it in this method.
This is a little more defined and would look interesting, but does it have enough impact…. Not quite.
I like the image too, however, I think I need color, this one could be done using my cheesecloth method.
So I will change apps, this time I will use waterlogue, another app for the mac.
This is it.
This will go into the planning file.
