What does it have to offer you the quilter?

Using Quilting Software & Photos

Quilt Designer: Patty Anderson
Quilt Program used: Electric Quilt

 

At the end of segment two Patty Anderson's wonderful Featherweight 221 Sewing Machine Quilt and Light House Quilts were shown.

Electric Quilt allows you to slip a photo into the quilt layout as a block. This gives a great deal of flexibility when designing a quilt around photos.

Lighthouse Quilt

Electric Quilt Quilt layout.
This quilt was still in pieces when the taping was done and
was used to show how one can store an in-progress quilt with templates and printout information from the software. The lighthouses were printed on fabric, then inserted in Eelectric Quilt as blocks that was used to create the over all design.

"I Love My 221"

Pattern Available

Patti Anderson's photo of a 221 Featherweight Sewing Machine became the inspiration
for a great little minature quilt using the tracing table found in Electric Quilt. Quilt-Pro has similar feature.
