The panel was on back order and I didn't receive it until after Christmas. And then I was dealing with a few higher priorities. I finally opened the package this week and am very excited to begin playing with the panel.
I decided this really needed to be a four-part series. Even if you do not use the Elsa and Anna panel, there will be lots of great suggestions for using any panel.
- Week one focuses on importing the panel into Electric Quilt and selecting coordinating fabrics.
- Week two will show you how I design a unique border.
- Week three will demonstrate how I piece the border.
- Week four will discuss quilting the project.
Importing the Fabric Panel into Electric Quilt
I found this new online store (at least new for me) that has this really nifty tool for finding matching fabrics. The following video will demonstrate how I used this tool. The website I used is Thousands of Bolts… Only One Nut.
In addition to demonstrating the color picker, I'll show you how I imported the images of these fabrics into Electric Quilt. This will allow me to design my border while waiting for the fabrics to arrive.
