Story behind the quilts and the designer

Lynda is a quilt pattern designer and distributes her patterns under her company name, Primitive Pieces. She has her own website. Lynda uses Quilt-Pro to explore the large scale blocks and primitive feel found in her quilts designs. Using Quilt-Pro helps her find secondary patterns when combining blocks. The Quilt-Pro fabric palettes help her explore color options. Templates and calculates yardage is simple as all the work is completed by the quilting software.

When Lynda adds applique, if she finds what she likes in Quilt-Pro provided shape, she will use the applique stamp for repeats. Sometimes she does not find the exact shape she wants to use, then she creates the the rough shape placement in Quilt-Pro and then hand draws the final shapes.

The applique shapes were roughly drawn in Quilt-Pro using layers to keep the shapes separate from the pieced blocks.

Designed in Quilt Pro with free hand drawing tools for the general applique shapes.
The final shapes where hand drawn.


Stars on a Tin Roof

Designed in Quilt-Pro. Star on a Tin Roof uses a single block that is repeated four times. The repeat
creates a double seceondary pattern that makes the larger center star block and the star sashing.
This is the type of design ideas that are easily explored in quilting software.
