Blog Hop | Diane Doran

Today I’m hosting a stop on a blog hop/tour for Diane Doran‘s new DVD “Digital Collage for Quilt Design, from Start to Finish“.

Diane shot her video the day after I did mine, so I was lucky enough to meet her and see her fabulous work in the green room – I was packing up and very relaxed, it was great fun (for me…she of course was trying to concentrate! 🙂 )

Diane is an exquisite machine quilter, and she’s a real pro at using digital images in her quilts (thus, they asked her to film a DVD about it!)

Here she is on the set:

And here is an excerpt from her DVD:

In this DVD, she’ll’ teach you how to:

  • Combine a variety of image types to create imaginative collages to print on fabric
  • Use Photoshop Elements 9 for basic digital enhancement and layering techniques
  • Consider color, value, and contrast while designing
  • Explain printing, basting, and finishing options for your collage, and demonstrate ways to enhance your design with quilting, markers, and pencils.
She has generously offered to give one away to one of my blog readers! If you’d like to win a copy, leave a comment on this post by this Friday, October 21, at midnight PST. I’ll pick a winner and send her your information (so be sure to leave your email address) and she’ll ship it to you as soon as she returns from Quilt Festival on November 7 (that lucky gal!)
I’m right in the middle of her tour, you should definitely check out the other stops as well (more chances to win!)
Congratulations Kristen!
If you don’t win a copy, you can purchase the video as a download right now at Interweave, or pre-order it from either her website or Interweave.
