The holidays are behind us and the kids are back in school,
now is the time to treat yourself to an online class!

This class was developed because so many of you wanted to learn
the technique used to create super realistic portrait quilts.

The nice thing about this technique is you don’t have to know how to draw.
The computer does the work for you!

This is a sample video of what to expect in the class.
Three sets of videos are available (and you can watch any/all of them)
to accommodate your software.
Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, & the free software Gimp.

The image on the left is the original photo, at right is the quilt.

 Videos to pause and work along, tips and extra software instruction,
recess, handouts, and homework.

I turned this photograph

into this quilt

and you can do it too!

I’ll teach you how to use your computer to create your own
custom patterns for portrait and pictorial quilts.

Actually, there is much more to the class than just learning
how to make the patterns.

You will learn techniques on using specific tools, menus,
resolution, photo adjustment, cloning, histograms, cropping,
layers, separating values, and more! 

Plus, how to complete the quilt.

It is a 4 week online class beginning Sept. 10, 2011.
You will use your own photographs to make the patterns!

The class has step-by-step videos you can watch,
pause and work along, and watch some more.

Video instruction is for three different software packages
(and one of the software applications is free). Can’t beat that! 

And…no drawing required!
