From the keyboard of Sharla R. Hicks:
I am very excited about this July/August edition of Computer Quilting BYTES. Find some suggestions for making Inkjet Quilt Labels permanent with the aide of Brush Pens, find fabrics to add to your Quilt program libraries, create vertical stripes from your horizontal stripes, print on plastic for templates and more fun ideas. CorelDRAW users will find an article to help them use the Clone Tool to create Quilts. For those still researching Computer Quilting, find an article about what type of questions to ask before signing up for a Computer Quilting Class or Demonstration. EQ and Quilt-Pro users will find Virtual Round Robins being formed and web sources that have archives for the hints and tips shared on the Mail Lists. And QuiltSOFT now has its own Website.

About Nancy: Nancy is a graphic designer with an expertise in CorelDraw! who has not had time to quilt the last few years but when she came upon the Virtual Computer Quilt Gallery on this Website, Nancy decided she could again quilt at least in the virtual world of her computer. She whipped up these 3 quilts in a day using CorelDraw! . We are very pleased to say that Nancy has agreed to write an occasional article about how to use CorelDRAW for Computer Quilting and her first article of what we hope will become an occasional on-going series for Computer Quilting BYTES is next.
