    Digital panel

    I purchased this digital panel last fall for a friend who loves purple. I learned a lot, mostly the hard way. I used a velour or velvety fabric, which created a lot of drag. I knew it and stubbornly did it anyway, which made it way harder than it should have. I outlined the petals, did threadpainting and used metallic thread in center. The metallic thread was a real challenge because the backing was too heavy. There is some free motion quilting in outer part. I was lucky to find some ombré fabric for border that matches perfectly. The digital part of this makes the flower look realistic and even seems to glow, it also makes for a huge panel that is 51 inches across. The person I gave this to was over the moon with joy.

    A digital panel means the fabric was digitally printed as opposed to traditional fabric print methods. It allows for extremely high resolution which creates greater detail in the design printed. Hoffman of California is doing a lot of it.

    Here are two links. One to a fabric store that gives a brief write up about it and one to Hoffman showing the digital prints they currently have available.

    Beautiful. No wonder your friend was over the moon!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Absolutely beautiful! I have 3 or 4 of these papal. I’ve not yet been ( brave enough?) to quilt one. Everyone who does them really does spectacular quilting on them. I love the center stitching- I love it all.
