Tablet design with Carla Barrett 2013,

I have had a day to myself today - so I have been working on my tablet classes
( doing some sewing too)
I drew this design from some wonderful fabric I have from designer Peggy Toole - which I have used in the past for fussy cutting my POTC blocks.

This is the beautiful fabric...I copied and pasted each of the little pieces th..till it filled up the circle/  Took me a while!

Then I put my drawing onto a new layer,  and cleaned it up a bit - that took me longer :)

Another exercise was to straighten up the photo of a quilt...and as this is what I am up to...

I took a photo of my progress...

.....and straightened it.

Then I had to make an end to end pantograph design . and as I had no designs I could use...
I drew two sets of feathers...and must admit I did do them a bit too quickly, but was pleased with them anyway.

...and this is what I ended up with.

I am so happy to be doing Carla's classes again 

So a good day today - and I am off to work out some more of my sewing while I can.

I hope you all have a nice day/evening.

Joan, thanks for sharing the tips and skills you are learning in her classes. I am sitting on the fence about signing up since I don't own a tablet> This is probably an ignorant question but is that just a laptop or something more special?
I'd love to learn more and that quilt photo straightening technique would be an asset besides many more of the wonderful class samples you've shown. Jane
