    Now, how do you get your working photo to be as big as a yard of fabric. Sorry if that is a dumb question but thats got me stumped. :-)
    I print a banner in Print Master, but first crop the pic in Photo Finish, into aproximate heights that can print on a page.

    But, you could also, take it to Kinkos, tell them you want the total width/height, and let them do it! The pic will flow from one page to the next.

    Or, the old fashioned way, make a grid over the pic, and have a larger grid to draw on.

    If you use some sort of photo prgram, alot of them will do "Edge Detect" or "Lines" and that will get alot of the sketching done for you!

    I will take notes and pics as I work on a photo inclusive tute, soon.

    Your instructions were clearly written but I am a visual learner and just a picture of some of the steps would help out alot. I just love your original quilts , stunning:-)
