The Dear Jane Software
May 1, 2011 § 3 Comments
I get asked fairly often where did I get the icon in my sidebar that keeps track of my Dear Jane progress. This is how I do it:
I have the Dear Jane software from Electric Quilt. The screenshot above shows what my project looks like. I color the blocks as I make them. Then I export an image of my quilt and save it to my computer. It only exports in bitmap format so I then open it in Photoshop and convert it to .jpg and save it to a smaller web size.
I love the software because I can print out each template as I need them. Actually, I print to .pdf and safe it on my computer in case I ever need to go back to that template. Poor Jane has been neglected. At the rate I’m going I’ll be 100 before I ever finish this quilt. I really need to spend some time with Jane this summer. There have been too many distractions over the last few months.
