I seem to spend more time designing than actually creating....so am I wasting my time? Should I make a pack with myself to create everything I design, one design at a time? I bet you understand. I have made things I've designed and I have designed things I hope to make, so maybe it's okay and maybe it's just part of the process.
I'm going to show off the Ruler Bag again (It's one of the boutique workshops we did) so I can show you that I did use one of my many programs to create something and then actually used it to enhance something.
I digitized the 2014 Quilt Show logo using Embird. I love that program, paid a fraction of the price that the quilt stores charge for their over priced digitizing software. I purchased it a few years back and the day I loaded it on my machine I digitized a design for a tea towel. To me, well that's an accomplishment considering all the nightmares I heard about that "over priced" program! If you want to digitize designs, I suggest looking at Embird, is is awesome and easy (most important)!
Anyway here is the bag I made and placed my newly digitized quilt show logo on! I also got a little fancy and made prairie points using a technique from a book I purchased a while back. "Lined Prairie Points"
