edpatterson Posted May 9, 2011 Share Posted May 9, 2011 I searched the forums but it turns out 'pattern' is a really silly search term :-) My sister is trying to recreate/repair a quilt my mother made. It consists of many 8x8 embroidered squares sewn together. Genius that I am I figured I could simply take a photo of each square, load it up into paint.net, add a layer and trace over the lines. Turns out I really, really suck at tracing. Next I tried embossing the image and finally posterizing (sp?) it. Now I am here. What is the easiest way to make a pattern from a photograph. This are pretty simple line art kind of things, lots of chain stitches. I would be more than happy to send a sample picture of one of the squares if that would help. I'd like to get the patterns done before she figures out just how much work she is in for :-) Thanks, Ed Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
