Open Line Friday-Best Posts for Beginners

Green Quilt Squares, LKennedyGood Morning, Quilters!

Welcome to Open Line Friday–Everyone Asks, Everyone Answers!

I recently received a note from a new follower of The Inbox Jaunt.  She said she was enjoying poking around but wondered which were the best posts for beginners...

It was one of those lightbulb moments for me…something that has been percolating in the back of my head…a project for fall–

I need to read my blog as if I was new to it and as if I was a beginner…

Needless to say, blogging is not linear.  I didn’t start at the beginning and discuss the ins and outs of free motion quilting…those posts are randomly spiced over the last three (yes, three years!)

Starting in September, I will be remodeling The Inbox Jaunt to make it more navigation-friendly and more Beginner-friendly

That is a lot of back story for today’s question:

QUESTION OF THE DAY

Which posts have been most helpful to you as a quilter?

(Which ones did you Pin to Pinterest or share with friends or write down in a notebook?)

What would you like to see more of going forward?Green Quilt Squares, LKennedyYOUR QUESTIONS

And of course, we always have time for YOUR questions!

Thanking you in advance for YOUR help on my back-to-school organizational quest!

May your bobbin always be full!

Let’s Doodle a Circle Composition

Circle Doodles, LKennedyGood Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!

Today is Thursday, and as we get ready for the busy weekend, let’s add a notepad and a few pens to our bags so we can squeeze in a little doodling!

Even if you are very busy…

There’s always time to doodle!

Today we are going to create a composition with circles.

Start by drawing a large square or a rectangle on your paper.

Search out a few circle templates in your house…

Spools of thread, CDs or DVDs, lids to plastic containers, cups and saucers…

I also use a set of circle templates I found at an office supply store.

START TRACING

Trace the circles in a random order.  For the first composition, don’t overlap any of the circles.

Circle Doodles, LKennedyOnce you have several pages of Circles… consider making copies of your favorites by tracing or at your local office supply.

Now the real fun begins…Use your markers and start filling in the circles and the spaces.

Don’t limit yourself to flowers…Circle Doodles, LKennedy

Who needs adult coloring books when you can doodle!
