As a high school teacher, I have had to keep up with technology as a part of my job, so the idea of playing around with a computer quilting program quite appealed to me.
I also found the program to be very user friendly when I sat down to play with it. Continue reading to see how I have benefitted from all of the tools made possible by this software.
Use the software to plan your colour placement and layout. You can colour the blocks inside the software see below as well, but I believe there is something to be said about pencil crayons and paper.
