Freebie ~ Snowflake Quaker

Snowflake Quaker

I was experimenting with the newest download of KG charts today, and came up with this design that I decided to release as a Freebie.  I’m a little frustrated with the KG upgrade, as it seems that there are now fewer DMC colors than in previous editions.  I’ve got to go back and see if it’s just me (which is entirely possible!) or if it’s KG. Also, it might be my computer’s display, but some of the colors in KG don’t seem to correspond well with the DMC shades.  That’s a shame as I like using KG.  My main design program is usually Pattern Maker Pro, but I like to change programs periodically as each program offers something unique.

Small Updake:  It was just me … all the DMC colors are there.  It’s just that they’re not as easily accessible as I’d like.   DMC color correspondence to a screen image is a highly variable feast, so although I’d like to have the screen match my floss samples, I’ll rely on the floss samples!

Happy Stitching!
