I want a "quilt" three blocks by three
blocks. My "quilted" quilt block is 117 pixels square. After
some quick math, (117x3=351) I know what size to increase my canvas.
First, copy your block. (click the two little pieces of paper) Then,
increase your canvas size. ("Image"..."Canvas size")
Use these settings:
You should now have a square with your smaller block in the left-hand
corner. Paste as a new layer 8 times. ("Ctrl"..."L")
Move each block to meet like a quilt. Zoom in if necessary to line them
layers. ("Layers"..."Merge"..."Merge all
Reduce the size of this image by 25%. Sharpen once. Your image should
now look something like this:
Now, we're going to make the quilt piece longer. My image is 88x88. I
want two quilt pieces, one on top of the other. I'm going to copy this
image first, then increase my canvas size. This time I will leave the
width the same (88), but I will double the length. (176) You may have to
make adjustments on these sizes, depending on the size of your quilt.
Now I have a quilt that looks like this:
may want to tube your quilt at this point, for later use. (First, merge
your layers, visible, then export as a
let's "hang" our quilt.
