Doodle Thursday


Doodles, FlowersGood Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!

(and by now All quilters who read The Inbox Jaunt are Doodlers, right?)

Sometimes we just need a prompt to get the doodles flowing.  And what better prompt than a slice of fabric?


Take a slice of several fabrics and glue them on to a sheet of paper or into a notebook.

Doodles, FlowersThen use that design to prompt your doodles.

You can try to continue the lines,

Or draw a mirror image of what you see.

Or copy some of the shapes.

Just play.  No rules.  See what emerges.

Try a few slices…maybe YOU are the next fabric designer???Doodles, FlowersPAT SLOAN PODCAST

  1. Good Sunny Morning, Lori-
    I have a favor to ask. Could you go back to May 26th on your blog (apple blossoms) and address Vicki’s question about large quilting spaces? I like her idea of using various flowers too.
    I think I know what your “reveal” will be. I read something about you “somewhere”. Your secret is safe with me! I’m sure excited!
    Thank you, thank you for making our lives more beautiful.

  2. Yay on the podcast!! I knew she would pick you up! I noticed a bunch of theinboxjaunt followers were also Pat Sloan followers! Can’t wait to hear what the surprise is! That’s awesome Lori congrats!
    Ya know what this doodle reminds me of…. Highschool art class we had to cut out a pic of a person , cut it in half, paste to a page and draw the other half lol!

  3. Congratulations Lori! I can see you moving forward at a rapid pace because of the talent you generously share with us. I know that all followers applaud your being appreciated by others, it was just a matter of time. A Franciscan recently remarked to me that with God’s plan it all comes to our Surprising fruition. And, HE smiles at our surprise.

  4. Love this doodle lesson, can’t wait to try it! I also think I know your “reveal” but mum’s the word You go girl! Hopefully I’ll remember to listen….sigh. Do you have remembering lessons also? Lol

  5. Love the doodling from fabric what great fun. Can you over doodle or over FMQ on a table runner. I never know if I have done too much. Can’t wait to hear or see you on the podcast. I follow you and Pat but have never done a podcast before. Keep up the great work.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
