Doodle, Quilt, Doodle Method

Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy, Flowers

Good Morning, Quilters!

WILL THERE BE MACHINE QUILTING 4-5-6???

Only Martingale knows for sure….

I am over at Stitch This! –the Martingale blog-discussing THE Book and a little of how it came to be, my vision for the book, etc….I would LOVE it if you would join us there!  Leave a comment for the Martingale peeps–they are a friendly, chatty group and they LOVE to talk to quilters!  (Especially friends of The Inbox Jaunt!)

HOW TO GET STARTED

For those of you who have your books….

May I recommend the Doodle-Quilt-Doodle Method?

Choose a motif that is calling your name and begging to be stitched…

Doodle it until you don’t need to look at the page anymore.

Doodles, Lori Kennedy

 

Then stitch the pattern a few times on a practice piece.  Once you stitch the motif, you’ll get a better feel for stitching order, stopping points, etc…

Doodle some more…(Doodle the motif until you will dream about it tonight…)

And then you are ready!  Stitch it into a quilt.  Once you do that,

YOU OWN IT!

Put it in your personal workbasket..

AND

Choose another motif to 

Doodle-Stitch-Doodle!
