Good Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!
Today we are back to the drawing board where all good quilts begin!
On Tuesday, we used straight lines to fill in triangles in a border. Our doodle this week is an extension of that lesson–so please review that before going on…
Grab your sketchbooks and draw parallel lines.
For the purpose of sketching, it is easiest if the lines are 1 to 1-1/2 inches apart. Once you choose a few designs that you really like, then doodle them in the size you need for your quilt.
Use a pencil to add the “triangle” lines as we did in the Tuesday Tutorial.
Try a few variations–squiggly line or jagged lines…add your own variations.
In the Tuesday Tutorial we added spirals between the rows…
What if we added the Spirals within the design?
The motif below is The Pretty Posy-Find the tutorial HERE
Now it’s YOUR turn! What motifs can you design with straight lines, triangles, spirals and YOUR doodle?
We’d love to SEE!
Doodle a day!
