Machine Quilting......Overhead Projector

I recently discovered a new use for my

overhead projector...

to help me preview quilting designs on my quilt tops:

On the right is my sketch book

on the left is an overhead transparency 

printed on an inkjet printer

I placed the transparency on the overhead projector...

It projects onto the quilt top...

This gives me a preview of what the quilting

will look like....before I ever make a stitch!

Sketch Book on the bottom

Transparency film on the top

Projected onto the quilt top...

I will have FUN playing around with sketches

and transparencies until I am ready to

put this.....under the needle.

What a neat idea! Too bad I don't have an over head projector.

Fabulous idea! I've actually seen one or two at garage sales! Keep your eyes peeled folks!!

This is brilliant! Or a video projector, which is the more current equivalent :-)
