I had tested Inkscape with an image in a similar size here and had no stress either in export time or in memory usage (although my system has more RAM than that, a crude monitoring I set up during export didn't show any significant memory usage when creating the output image).

I think the best way is to use Pattern Along Path under menu Path -> Path Effect Editor. In this way it's easier to edit. :) Here's the steps: Create a rectangle that looks like the one you want to deform Convert it to Path (menu Path => Object to Path) Copy it into the clipboard Create a bezier curve of the deformation Select the bezier curve and go to ...


To deform a rectangle we need to convert it to a path first. Draw and select rectangle. Choose Path > Object to Path. Choose the Edit Path by Nodes tool (or F2) Select the corner nodes of the rectangle's top line Make the selected line a curve by pressing Push/Pull the curve handle until happy Repeat step 4. to 6. for the bottom line.
