Here is another one of my digital quilts, drawn and colored using my tablet. Love taking the time to make one of these- only took an hour from start to finish.
Here is a slightly different version, with a different center and color way:
Take care! Off to remodel Ethan’s bedroom now. Did I mention that I am converting his nursery into a sailboat/nautical theme bedroom? The bed arrived yesterday, here is what it looks like:
I plan to make some DIY nautical decor items for his room. His temporary quilt arrived yesterday, too. I plan on making his permanent sailboat quilt, but until that day, I resorted to buying one for now. More later about pulling together his room. Cheers, Carla
Beautiful design. Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to see the finished room.
Love that quilt design. Do you plan to teach that e-class again??
Hi Ramona, the next time I am teaching my Tablet Design class is in person at the AU Machine Quilting Festival in Adelaide in early October, 2014. The e-Class, for which I shot and edited a gazillion videos for, is now outdated. The time and labor of shooting new videos, then editing them, only to have Adobe release yet another software version is frustrating.
Hmmm…. perhaps I should convert the how-to info into booklet form? 🙂 Carla
I totally understand your frustration. If you do go to booklet, please let me know. Have fun in Australia!
Which tablet are you using?
Hi Carol, I own about 6 different types of tablets, however, the digital quilt was drawn on my Fujitsu Lifebook T901, which is a tablet PC convertible. Let me know if you have any questions about tablets. Take care, Carla
The bed is so ‘cool’ and fun!! That nautical them will be a fun one to pull together!!!! Blue/white is such a crisp clean combo and easy to add splashes(!) of color!!!
I think I will have fun! The third accent color is red, you can see some of my idea board at http://www.pinterest.com/carlabarrett/ideas-for-ethans-room/
(Note: I meant to type “theme”…duh!!!!) I can see now where Ethan’s room is headed. Fun!
What program (or programs) do you use?
Hi Charlene, I use a number of programs depending on what I plan to do with what I am drawing. For the digital quilt shown in this post, I used a raster based program, Photoshop Elements. If I intended to enlarge it or digitize it, I would re-draw in a vector design program (like Adobe Illustrator or Art and Stitch). Hope this helps! 🙂 Carla
Fantastic boy’s bedroom. Anxious to see the finished product.
