  2. Import your printed fabric swatch into PreQuilt.

03 | Use a Printed Fabric Swatch in a Digital Coloring Page

Once you've found and prepared your printed fabric swatch (Step 1 above), we can now use it in our digital coloring page.

For this example, I am going to use Suzy Quilts' Tiny Meadow in Nova fabric from her Evolve collection from AGF.

  1. Click on the Edit button associated with the Fabric Link you'd like to change. In this example, I'll be changing C5.

  2. Click on the PRINTS tab on the fabric swatch panel that will slide out.

  3. You will see all the prints that you have already imported to PreQuilt here.

  4. Click on the Select button for the printed fabric swatch you'd like to use.

  5. You can now see the quilt using our fabric swatch!
