Little Miss Muffet on Open Line Friday

Tuffet.Karyl.002Good Morning, Quilters!

Welcome to Open Line Friday!  A few weeks ago,  I mentioned that I wanted to make one of the tuffets that were so popular at Quilt Market.

And of course, you came through.  Several of you sent information about tuffets.

Thank you to Karyl, who sent photos of her tuffet.  She made it in a class by Sharyn Cole of Tuffetsource.

The One Shape Every Doodler Must Learn

Doodle LessonsGood Morning, Quilter/Doodlers!

Welcome back to Lesson 9 in Better Quilting Through Doodling

First…a little blog update–The Free Motion Quilting Tutorial Page on the header has been updated.  All of the tutorials should be there.  (That was WAY overdue…there were lots of missing tutorials!)

I also added a blog button (See the Sidebar) for you to add to YOUR website for direct access to The Inbox Jaunt.  I have had technical difficulties with the button in the past so if someone could test it and let me know I’d be grateful!

While I was at it, I added a Doodle Tutorial Page –also on the top header.  All of the tutorials can be found in one place.  Click on the photo to go to the full tutorial.

There are now nine doodle lessons–How is it going?

Are you confirmed Doodlers now?

DOODLE LESSON NINE

From the photo above, can YOU guess which is THE ONE shape every doodler must know?

It’s the “Cigar”.

Every doodler must learn the cigar shape.

It’s a little tricky to get just right.

As you are practicing this flattened circle, use some fun markers and create designs with it…

It’s more fun that way.

Doodle LessonsAs doodlers, we will call this shape “The Cigar”

Artists call it The Foreshortened Circle and they talk about boring stuff like the Major Axis and the Minor Axis

Skip it…just draw Cigars and have fun with them!

Doodle LessonsOnce you can doodle a Cigar, you can doodle a lot of fun things…Doodle LessonsSo light up your doodles with cigars!Doodle LessonsAnd light up your quilts with doodling!

Daisy, Daisy…Free Motion Quilting

Daisy Quilt, Free Motion QuiltingDaisy, Daisy, Give me your answer, Do!

I’m half crazy all for the Love of YOU!

Good Morning, Quilters!

As you already know, I get song lyrics, little ditties,  stuck in my head all of the time and sometimes they become quilts…(Let’s Go Fly a Kite, Let’s Twist Again, and many more.)Daisy Quilt, Free Motion QuiltingMost of the time, I’m not sure what the origin of the song is…

Is Daisy a 40’s era song?  Is it from a movie or play?  Daisy Quilt, Free Motion QuiltingI stitched this little quilt using several threads:  Superior’s Magnifico for the white outlines, and Sulky Rayon for the yellow and pink backgrounds.Daisy Quilt, Free Motion QuiltingNotice-my substitute for stippling–little leaves and Pebbles!

Daisy Quilt, Free Motion QuiltingWhat about YOU, have you ever turned a song into a quilt?

Of course, some songs…well, they just don’t translate to fabric….

Your Singing Seamstress,

Lori
