    Thank you so very much. I have the $$$software, but it is confusing to me and no dealer near by. Will give this a try this weekend. Thanks again. Olivia

    Thank you SOOOOOO much!! I downloaded GIMP a few days ago because of talk on this site, and tried to play with it a bit. I was totally lost! I just downloaded your pdf, so now I just need to take some time to read through it and see if I can figure it out. (I'm a visual learner, and can do things in no time if I see someone show me - just reading it and trying it myself doesn't always work so well.) :roll:

    Go to http://www.gimp.org - it's free software to download that is similar to photo shop.

    Thanks for your sharing. I am really excited to try the software. I have looked into the expensive software but was too cheap to get it. That is a great tutorial to use.

    Gee Michael, I almost didn't open this thread because I thought it was making a quilt using gimp (the notion that you use on upholsstery edges, etc. Glad I did, now I have a new toy to try. THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!!!!:)

    I thought I would create a tutorial to help others who might be interested in doing this, but didn't want to spend the money on Quilt Design Software.

    Anyway please feel free to try this out and see if my instruction make sense. :) And also let me know any changes, errors or instructions that might be unclear.

    ENJOY!
    I have looked at GIMP before but thought it looked hard to master...will have to take a second and third look.
