Doodle Day: Circles and Flowers

Doodles, Quilts, FlowersGood Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!

First–I’d like to thank all of you who celebrated my Great News of becoming a BERNINA Ambassador with me.  Your kind words were greatly appreciated!  I am very excited about the opportunity and the new sewing machine-the BERNINA 770 Quilter’s Edition! Again, thank you for being part of this New Adventure…we shall see where it takes us…


Today we will continue our series that I’ve just officially named:  “Better Quilting, Through Doodling”.

Not only will your free motion and long arm quilting improve, but so will your quilt design.  Doodling unleashes creativity–(Maybe that should be the official name?)

Today we are going to combine a few previous lessons to create a new doodle (and maybe a new quilt?!)

Using a few colorful markers, doodle several rows of Messy Circles

Add a few Leaves

Doodles, Quilts, FlowersAfter you’ve tried a few rows of circle flowers, fill a full-page!

Doodles, Quilts, FlowersThere are several ways this could be incorporated into a quilt–free motion quilting, appliqué…

I’ll leave the rest to YOUR Unleashed Creativity!

Now that I have a new table runner, maybe I should dust the table…

Yep–I’m going up to my sewing room. To my new B770QE…
