Quilt Designs

Graph Paper?

Graph paper is one of my favorite quilting tools.  I like to sketch quilt designs on graph paper rather than plain paper because it's easier for me to make the pieces fit!  Sometimes I just sketch with a pencil.  If I want to see how colors work together I use colored pencils to color the designs and get  a better idea of how the pieces will fit together.

Sometimes I'm not designing a quilt but am working on someone else's quilt and want to sketch out custom quilting so I sketch their quilt top and work on my stitching design.
