Wholecloth Layout PS Premium with/MK
In this session, we take all the skills and techniques you've learned in Layout and Rendering #1 and #2, and wrap them all into one to come up and plan out wholecloth layouts.
Wholecloth is different than laying out a quilt, because with wholecloth, we are always thinking toward stitching the end product which involves thinking through and planning stitch order.
We learn the stitcher order functionality from within PS Premium, but also spend a little time in Art and Stitch working with the resequence and machine throat depth tools in that program to help us group items and plan stitching passes.
The sky's the limit here, folks. Dream it up, layout it out, stitch it down and you've got a beautiful quilted piece of art.
Layout and Rendering #2 (PS Standard) w/MK
This Layout and Rendering #2 session builds on what you learned in LO#1. Go to the next level with mixed layout techniques, like to block to block, sashings, and on point layouts. And end up with the MK Way of dealing with those tricky, L-Shaped, corner connected type border applications. A little bit of Art and Stitch instruction is included with this session.
Layout & Rendering #2 PS Premium w/MK
In this "recorded live" session of Layout and Rendering #2, you will review the MK Way of chunking borders, mixed layout techniques (i.e., block to block layouts) and the more complex border treatments known as L-Shaped, corner-connected borders.

Walk through the chunking process with MK starting from the basics. First, A very elementary explanation of chunking and details about how to pre-chunk you borders with some simple math. Continue into using simulation to plan and chunk borders and finally, MK's latest way of chunking called chunking on the fly.
This video is intended to be a follow up to Layout and Rendering #1 / PS STANDARD.
In that LO1 video, you get all the basics of chunking including marking, placing and stitching. The instruction is from within Standard, but it's all the same base instruction, you just apply it now to Premium.
