I am so glad you have found the joy of digital fabric design. I have been printing my own digital designs for a long time. Ricky's Convergence book has two of my small quilts that are made with fabrics created digitally in Corel Draw. You will find a whole new world of possibilities have opened up for you. Have fun. Your cloud piece is stunning. Betty Ann

:lol: Thanks (actually I just stumbled onto the idea). Another arrow in the quilter's quiver. Here's the printout now piecliqued into the sky and surrounded by the parting clouds. You can barely see the outline of where the tip of the sword is going to be in the light section. This is just plain fun!

I just made an interesting discovery on something that you all may find useful. I used my new digital tablet and CorelPainter11, but I suspect this will work in most computerized drawing/painting packages. I had been unable to find exactly the right thing to go in a sky-spot on a landscape background I am making for my knight quilt. I discovered that layering on fabrics just didn't look right for a particular light spot in the sky. So I painted a soft sky space with the clouds parting for a lighter spot in the sky and printed it on 11 X 17 tabloid sized fabric. I haven't put it into the sky yet, but I think it will work. I just wanted to share in case someone out there needs a particular fabric that can be painted and printed digitally rather than with ink or paints. I'm not set up for dying or inking my fabrics. I can add touches of highlights and small bits of paints for faces or some such, but not a real dye job like this would require. Anyway, here's a jpg of that sky spot. Cheers.
