As an added bonus, students may submit quilt top photos for Carla to design during the class. This has been a popular feature in past classes! Here is an example of Quilt Whispering on a quilt from student Debby B.  The “Before:”

Here is the sample Quilt Whispering by me (Carla) for Debby’s Quilt:

When I quilt whisper on student’s quilts, I design them based on the student’s quilting level.

  1. Hi Carla,
    Can you please advise what software is required for the tablet design class, and do you have to have an IPAD, or an ANDROID tablet? Looking forward to hearing from you, (I’m putting in an order for Christmas!!)

    • Hi Judy, there are currently 3 types of tablets being sold on the Tablet Market: #1 is an iPad or Android tablet; #2 is a Tablet peripheral (as in the Wacom and other brands of plug in tablets; and #3 is a Tablet PC- which is a laptop computer with a tablet feature.

      For my class, since the program I use for this class is Photoshop Elements, you will want to use Tablet types #2 or 3.

      Why not use an iPad or Android tablet for my class? While I can draw on quilt tops using my iPad, there are serious limitations comparing a drawing App with a full featured program like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Right now, the drawing Apps available are cumbersome and do not have the extensive features that Photoshop does.

      Thus said, in the class I will provide to any interested student how I draw on a quilt top with my iPad. In fact, you can use an iPad to access my class and even watch the live Webinar Meetings by downloading a Webinar App.

      Good question, Judy! Thanks for asking.

  2. PS: I will be writing a buying guide for tablets in the near future. There are pros and cons for each type. I own all 3 types- but that is because I am married to a generous DH who works at Intel Corp. LOL

    Bottom line: If money is tight- buy a Wacom Bamboo bundled with Photoshop Elements. If your budget is high- consider a Tablet PC or Wacom Cintiq.
