Needleprint’s Infinity Charts are Wonderful!
I love Needleprint! Jacqueline Holdsworth is a very generous needlewoman. I love her infinity charts, and my first design using the software is taken from one of the Quaker medallions in Ackworth Motifs II. I’m doing it as another pillowtop in 4 shades of rose with black. I’m still struggling mightily with the Jane Greenoff software (my heart definitely belongs to Pattern Maker Pro), but I hope I’ll be OK once I wrestle with it more. Perhaps I can purchase an upgrade to Jane Greenoff’s software, I’ll have to ask. I know that there’s no perfect software, butPMP comes really close for me … editing with it is just soooo easy compared to everything else. And Jane’s software was about the only program that I hadn’t tried. Does anyone use her Designer Gold? Does it make editing easier? Are upgrades possible, or are they stand-alone products.
Anyway, this design ( Keys to a Neuro [ Necker Squares] Quaker) uses 4 shades of any color plus black. The symbols to the top-left of the chart start with the lightest color (heart symbol) and progress down to the darkest color (m symbol) and then black at the bottom.
Any Color Quaker and Neuro Quaker are going to live on my living room couch when they grow up and become pillows.
I’ve posted a file of the Symbol chart in the green, my Shared Files box, and put some alternate color scheme patterns into the blog as well. I’d like to try it in two colors also … maybe light and medium shades of purple and green.
Infinity Charts (software and editable patterns) are available at http://needleprint.blogspot.com and are going to give you hours and hours of enjoyment.
I also re-designed the Beatrix Potter Infinity Chart to suit myself and am thrilled with it! I love old samplers, but I absolutely have to make them mine if I’m going to stitch them. Jacqueline’s Infinity Charts are pure genius! Now I may actually finish my Beatrix Potter sampler! More to come!
PS This is a free design, but is not to be used for anything except your personal pleasure.
