Earlier this week I received my Threadbias Quilt Design Tool beta invite. I decided to try it out by designing my block for the VMQG March block challenge. The March challenge is to create a block (in the modern quilt aesthetic) inspired by your favorite city. I chose San Francisco and decided to make a block that included the bay, a bridge, and the gray sky. The tool still needs work but I’m happy with the current state. It’s easy to use which means you don’t get as many options and tools as are included in Electric Quilt or Illustrator.
As I was writing this post I noticed the proportions of the fabric pieces look wrong in the exported .png file (but look fine in the design tool).
