Good Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!
Today is a doodle day!
Last time we had Doodle Class, we were working on one of the essential quilt doodles, The Sweep
Once you are comfortable with basic right and left Sweeps,
Be sure to review both of these lessons before beginning today’s lesson.
THE SWEEP BECOMES A LEAF
To make this lovely leaf,
Begin by doodling the basic sweep (lower of the two doodles below)
Then “Sweep” back-from right to left with a shallow “sweep”.
Doodle a page of left leaves.
Start with the lower doodle and add the upper doodle from the photo below….
For more detail, add a loop inside each leaf…
Choose YOUR favorite and go right to the sewing machine!
Tomorrow: Let’s ALL share tips for quilting The Big Quilt on The Little Machine–Open Line Friday!
