UPDATED with new contact for the second time on 12/2017. Free to existing renters. If you rent today, you get all updates to this video for the next three years. Jump to 2 hours and 35 minutes - or there about - to see the appended content. (Audio was also enhanced.

I hope you enjoy this session and remember to share what you create with Simulation on the PS Sim Style Facebook page.
Chunking the MK Way - PS Premium

#4

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. In this follow up, Chunking, video, MK progresses to the most current way in which she's chunking in her studio using PS PREMIUM.
No handouts or tutorials on this. Recommend you purchase and watch LO #1 then progress with this video for the full gamut of chunking instruction with MK.

Happy Chunking

Line Drawing Webinar Recording
#5
MK uses line drawings built to resemble the Quilt she was working on to help with planning and layout.
She originally used line drawings just as a teaching tool.

The Line Drawing Webinar ran past 90 minutes and had rave reviews. Many light bulbs came on.


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.
