The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Hawaiian Quilt

I'm going to have to muzzle Laurianne she is doing such a fantastic job for all of us.  I've spent all day on creating something based on her stitches tutorial, which was perfect.

I've had these quilt squares around for about a year and did post them on my blog as quilt squares.  So I used them to create a quilt for printing.

Along the way I learned a whole bunch of things including stitiches.  Most important I finally broke through my personal barrier about layers and spent more time creating and working with layers than all the other pieces combined.

I used, if it is any help
scatter for the blanket stitch (sorry Laurianne mine does not do your tutorial justice)
blocks and quilting spirals done with tiled clones.  I used stroke dashes for the stitches except for the blanket stitch.

I have attempted to design this as a template for those as impaired as I am but without the time to sit all day and figure it out.

There are 6 layers, including the pattern.  I envision that you could delete the pattern, play with the colors and add your own elements/patterns...at least I hope you can.

I most likely will not share this svg on my blog as I'm not confident enough to send it out into the world but if you can use it it is yours, I would ask that you let me know what technical changes you made, or if you found a better way of doing it.

I love that this forum has so many Inkscape experts and wouldbe experts for me to practice upon.

Don't delay in donating to this forum so that we all benefit from all the great tuts and information provided here.  See Angela's post on donating.  It is a small price to pay for great info and tutorials.

Happy quilting!

Beautiful project....love it.

And I had posted a request for a grandma in rocking chair in this forum...didn't get any help,  but don't worry about it...I got one and colored it...now how to make it animated...like grandma rocking in the rocking chair.  If not, my brother's going to have to made do with the grandma sitting in the rocking chair for the webpage.

Thank you.

Looks good Susan. A lot of different techniques involved.

Carolyn, sorry you didn't get any help with an image of grandma in a rocking chair.
I will get in touch with Belinda who posted about that other program and ask her to visit and tell us more about it.
