I LOVE TO DOODLE
As you know, I love to doodle…
No piece of paper is safe if I can find a pen…and no piece of fabric is safe either…
This idea came from a photo I saw on Pinterest…Read more HERE.
A QUILT SANDWICH — BEGGING FOR DOODLES
I created the quilt sandwich with a piece of hand dyed fabric that reminded me of a school “blackboard”.
Then, every time I had this Sulky Rayon thread on my machine…
I doodled for a few minutes before I started my bigger project.
TEST YOUR TENSION
This also served as my “tension test”. I like to check the tension on my sewing machine before I started quilting each day.
A TRUE DOODLE QUILT
Give it a try!

PAPER PIECED MOTHER’S DAY HYDRANGEAS
Today, we have a gorgeous hexagon rendition of the Mother’s Day Hydrangeas. Peggy never ceases to amaze me! I wish there were more hours in a day and more days in a week…Another project for…AFTER The Wedding!
NOTES FROM PEGGY:
- The hexagons, if used the size they print out, are 4″ from tip to tip.
- The full project will be 24″ x 34″ using 18 different fabrics.
- The hexagons, of course, can be reduced to any size and the internal fracturing can be simplified.
- The hexagons are meant to be paper pieced individually and then either hand sewn or machine pieced.
- There are several files attached — hoping to satisfy those who asked for more details.
- The flower portion of the pieced hexagons do not have to be strictly pieced according to the pattern, but the window edge and vase edge and its shadow will look most convincing if they are carefully sewn and aligned according to the pattern pieces.
- The paper piecing PDF is 24 pages long and includes each hexagon, full-sized.
- The pieces are laid out in horizontal rows, the print-out assumes I meant for them to be sewn that way and indicates horizontal strips of hexes, but of course that’s not probably the way most would choose to assemble.
