Learning that the usual Mac shortcut keys (such as copy and paste) worked the same made it much easier. As did learning how to make blocks, flip and rotate and align. So far, I've finished a pattern for one quilt. And then realized how much fun and easy it was to try out different colour combinations in the blocks! Which gave my one pattern a dozen or more variations that completely change its look. I'm working on sewing up the original quilt now and have a couple other people testing my pattern out to see how it works. I'm hoping to release the pattern in July.
I'd like to keep the quilt a secret for once, but here are a few scenes from the sewing space:
|Pinning some parallelograms on my bed|
|Fabric pinned and stacked, ready to sew|
|Supervising from her blanket|
|Blues and browns|
|Being a good girl, staying on her blanket and off my quilt!|
