Computer Quilting has come of Age!
What does it have to offer you the quilter?

by Sharla Hicks

Exploring Color and Design in the Scrap Quilt using Quilting Software

Quilt Designer: Nina Antze
Quilt Program used: PC Quilt


Story behind the quilts and the designer
Nina Antze

Nina loves scrap quilting, design, and computers. When she combines the three, her quilts really sing.

Nina is the program developer for PC Quilt. She brings a unique position to quilting software programming because she is a hands-on quilter and a software programmer.

Examples from PC Quilt Software for Green Scrap Quilt
Green Scrap Quilt
This Quilt combines the best of the
Sewing Machine Software and Quilting Software.

Nina Antze uses PC Quilt to explore the scrap quilt and in this quilt the computerized sewing machine.
The center Lily Block was generated using computerized machine embrodiery on the sewing machine.
NOTE: Time ran out when taping the episode and this beautiful example of Nina Scrap Quilting skills aided by quilting software did not make it on the air.
