Alphabet Scramble and AQS Winners



Alphabet Free Motion QuiltingGood morning, Class…please take out your notebooks and begin doodling…

Remember, Doodlers are Smarter!

I started doodling the alphabet…

Pretty soon it turned into Chicka Chicka Boom Boom–Does anyone remember this children’s book–it was a favorite at our house!

Alphabet Free Motion Quilting

This little doodle needs a bit more work—before it could be a tutorial, but  I think it could be a fabulous fill pattern…

In the meantime…I hope you are enjoying yesterday’s Perfect Pencil or The Inbox Jaunt, New-Record- Setting, The Dizzy Daisy!

If you are working on any fall projects, you might enjoy: “A” is for Apple–a Free Motion Quilt tutorial

Alphabet Free Motion QuiltingFor several more free motion quilt tutorials, please see my column in American Quilter Magazine.  The September issue is on news stands now or subscribe HERE.


Thank you to all who entered the drawing last week by supplying ideas for future free motion quilt tutorials.  I made a LONG list and will work through as many as I can doodle…(sorry, cats are still hard for me to doodle, so this may take a while!)

Feathers?  Do you really want feathers?  Aren’t there enough feather tutorials?  I guess there aren’t many step-by-step photo tutorials so we will work on feathers….the number one request….

The winners…

  • Deonn (Quiltscapes)

  • Suzette German

Congratulations!  Please e-mail your address to me at and I will get those right out to you!

Happy Stitching and Doodling,

  1. Feathers are gorgeous,j but I think your free motion motifs make a quilt more interesting. I can pick one or several designs that will coordinate with my quilt and it turns out great.

  2. I want/need to practice some of your ideas. Is a 12″ square big enough to start with and get a good feel for the design?

  3. Hi Lori! Feathers were number one really!! I like your stuff soooo much better than feathers…they are so over used…but that’s just my opinion. 🙂 Kind of right up there with stippling for me…haha! OH…and you spelled my name wrong for the mag. winner. (heehee) JK…congrats to the winners.
    Glad you reminded me about the doodle book…going to grab mine quick…my turn to spend the day and night at the hospital with Mom…she had her other knee done. I have burp rags to crochet edges on and will have plenty of time to doodle too!! yay! I love doodling. 🙂
    Have a good day. 🙂

  4. I like the pencils a lot. It makes me think of Teacher gifts. We have a lot of teachers in our family. Thank you.

  5. A told B and B told C, meet you at the top of the coconut tree…. My grandson loved that book. Thanks for the memory.
