Tablet design

I have been busy not only with customer quilting this last couple of weeks, but also I have been attending an online course in the evenings by Carla Barrett known for her "quilt whispering" techniques, which teaches the use of photoshop elements software and tablet design where you can draw and doodle on photographs of quilt tops on your computer for seeing possible quilting choices before actually quilting your quilt.  I have learned alot of new skills with regard to cropping and editing photographs along with a whole host of new ideas for custom quilting design.
So this original photograph of my quilt top on my large design wall  in my studio gets some photoshop editing including skewing and cropping, and drawing on for my intended quilting layout.    Of course this is only an idea, how I decide to quilt my quilt in the end will depend on how I feel at the time I quilt it.  I may decide on a pantograph design too.
