Drawing Pugs

I suck at tracing with a mouse/stylus.  All I want to do is trace in EQ7 several pugs to make applique patterns for my friend.  I figured if I could do my own via software I'd have this quilt looking spiffy and it would piece of cake to draw them out.  All I had to do was make the applique blocks and then put sashing between them.  Actually; I have a quilt style in mind, but I'm not going to show it here since my friend may read my blog.

I'm thinking I may need to raid the library for a book on pugs or buy a calendar so I can draw them out via the old fashioned way with a pencil and then get the fabric needed for the applique.

My printer even won't print out the pictures I have in mind insisting I don't have paper in there.

I've even tried my Adobe Photo Elements and Corel Draw 4 to work through this.  I'm heading to bed so my brain can unwind as I know I'm making this much harder than it should be.

If my friend is reading this, don't panic about this post.  I got it figured out.  Your quilt is in good hands.
