Spoonflower Mosaic

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Putting all the parts together and having it actually work - not the squares themselves, but the technology and the programming. And now that I've got my stash computerized, I can make more quilts like this! What advice would you give someone starting this project? You really need to be comfortable with computers and have the right hardware and software (smartphone, photo editing software).

What you will need

  • My fabric stash
  • plus a bunch of computer programs.

Q&A with CathyNacov

Needlecat asked:
Love it! How did you "file" your actual yardage so you could find it later? So intriguing!
CathyNacov answered:
Thank you! For most of the fabrics, I only have a half-yard or less; so they fold up in the shape of a fat-quarter. I have several clear plastic bins that are only that deep, and I stacked them on thier ends sorted by color so I could see everything. When I created the virtual swatches, I named the files using color and a description i.e. "yellowspotsonpurple". Sometimes if I had alot of very similar fabrics I'd also put a sticker on the fabric with it's name.
