I haven’t said anything about this yet, because I don’t have too many digital designs out there. But, I started digitizing designs for Intelligent Quilting. She’s got a sale going on right now for 25% off through July 29th – that’s 2 more days.
I’ve got several themes. Right now, they have parts of my themes; Dinner at Eight (stiletto) designs, Japanese designs, and Paper Doll designs. You can go directly to my design page here. Or, any time you are on my site and want to check out what’s new, I’ve provided a button that will take you there. It’s in the upper right-hand corner of this website under the social icons and looks like this.
My Japanese theme comes from my experiences of living in Japan many years ago. While I was there, I went to college and minored in Asian Studies. I learned to speak Japanese and was just beginning to read and write their 4,000 kanji and kana characters. I can honestly say that I”ve forgotten more than I’ll ever know, given that I don’t use it. And, sometimes when I’m trying to say something in Spanish, it will come out in Japanese and vice versa. I’m not fluent in either language; I wonder were I fluent, if that would still happen. Anyhow, here is an Asian symbol that I thought would look great on a Double Wedding Ring quilt, just for something different. Yes, it can also be used otherwise, but this is the symbol for double happiness. This is usually used on envelopes and cards for wedding couples. You can find it here.
Okay, so now for a confession. I do not have a computerized quilting machine, and I feel like I’m designing these blind. So, I have a favor to ask. IF you buy any of my designs, could you, would you, please let me know what I need to do to make these computer friendly? I honestly have no idea. I just want to draw quilting designs so that quilters have access to making their quilts wonderful and unique. I can only hope that one day I will be able to get a computer for my machine. But, for now, I’m digitizing blind.
