Last week I shared a video tutorial on creating labels for all my quilts created during the last two years -- a daunting task. If you missed the tutorial, please feel free to check out my previous post.
This week I will share with you my shortcuts for printing these labels.
My video tutorial describes using the Photo Layout feature within Electric Quilt. It is a great way to combine a number of labels on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper or fabric sheet.
I will admit that I didn't quite follow all the "rules" for the actual printing of my labels. After a couple of test runs, I realized that my color laser printer produced a much more intense label than my ink jet printer. So even though the Electric Quilt website clearly said their product was for ink jet printers, I ran most of them through my laser printer instead. I didn't see a problem -- but I didn't try to wash or rinse them after printing either.
If I eventually have fading, I've decided I will be ok with it. At least I have a label with my name on it -- even if it ends up being in "invisible ink".
Designing T-Shirt Quilts using Electric Quilt - New Class
This will be one of my brand new classes that will premiere at the MN Quilt Show in Duluth. I finalized all the projects this week -- and wanted to give you a preview of them.
In this class you will learn to work with actual photographs of your t-shirts and learn how to audition them in your quilt. You will also learn options for working with t-shirts with "unique" sizes that can make them a bit of a challenge. Design instructions for six separate quilts are included with the class.
Please join me in Duluth! Register for classes here.
