Quilters Newsletter Magazine has joined the computer age!

by Sharla Hicks © 2000

WOW, computer quilting has come of age -- it has jumped from child to teenager, and in my opinion, the best is yet to come as more and more quilters realize that computers are a very useable quilter's tool that save time. Quilt-Pro and Benartex teaming up with Quilter's Newsletter Magazine to bring you an interactive CD that offers 5 years of articles and projects on CD is just one signal of the maturation of computer quilting!

Quilter's Newsletter Magazine has been the quilter's magazine of choice for many many years. Now, for those of use who have made QNM back issues part of our beloved quilt library collection, stored them in boxes or binders on the shelves of our quilt libraries, and lovingly referred them when needed, QNM has just gotten better! 5 years of the best QNM projects and articles on CD, allows us the option to interact with the much loved quilter's magazine of choice in even a greater way.

PC users and Mac users with Virtual PC: Print any size block from the projects using Quilt-Pro's Block Factory technology: (Mac users, see computer requirements below!)

Print templates or foundation piecing blocks, your choice -- this allows custom sizing and flexibility just not possible in the printed word charts and project recommendations. This is quite an enhancement for the QNM projects found on the CD. No more copy store trips or redrawing of blocks. Just sit down to your computer, resize and print all the copies you need and never leave your home, stash or sewing machine. Talk about time savings!

For additional information about Block Factory and how it will printout blocks from the QNM CD, .

An added enhancement to each projects blocks is Benartex Fabrics fill each patch for a sense of what the project will look like in the real world!
