Lisa Calle shows us the simple technique of Divide and Design in action. She starts with a blank block, shoots a black and white photo, and prints it out. Using a pencil and her circle and arc tools she begins drawing a pattern on overlays. By adding overlays the design becomes more intricate and you will soon be ready for quilting open spaces.
