I've been looking at how to create patterns. As I look around it strikes me that making an intarsia pattern is very similar to making a stained glass pattern. I use a software tool from Dragonfly Software ( Has anyone attempted to use this for pattern making.
One of the best features is that you can upload and scale an image to the size you want to make. Then the software can try to find lines between colors. The user can then correct, add, remove lines as needed. Here's an example of a project I did that started with an image downloaded from the web.
Thoughts? Could this work?
