Who ever thought your camera and computer could be your most valuable quilting tools? Going far beyond the concept of simply transferring photos to fabric, the authors show you how to transform your favorite photos into dazzling quilts. Learn how to ‘piece’ traditional blocks and original ‘applique’ designs using Adobe(R) Photoshop(R) Elements software to create, modify, embellish, and print the designs directly onto fabric. The intriguing digital projects include easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. It is fun and efficient to copy, resize, and reprint your blocks to create larger or smaller quilts, table runners, pillows, or note cards. You’ll love using common images in uncommon ways, creating fabrics for your own wonderfully unique quilts. Collectively, this talented California team has been quilting for nearly 50 years. Both are enthusiastic teachers. Gudny is a PC expert who also teaches painting on fabric. Sandra is a Macintosh expert who has been teaching how to print images onto fabric and incorporate them into quilts. Together they teach workshops on their digital-quilting technique.
