Graphics Essentials

Make friends with Photoshop or another graphics program to make the most of the quilting designs and patters you already have in your collection. It’s easy to scan a pattern or quilting design into a graphics program and resize it for a custom fit for your project. There are many books and tutorials out there to help you learn what you need to know about using graphics programs (and don’t ignore the help files in the program itself), but one of the best resources specifically aimed at quilters and fabric artists is Digital Essentials by Gloria Hansen, available from Electric Quilt.
