While Divide and Conquer focused on how to break down quilts and blocks with different compositional styles…

Doodle to Design emphasizes doodling, creating your Personal Motif Library, and includes more than 50 motifs-doodled and demonstrated!

Each lesson ends with everyone’s favorite–A TRUNK SHOW!

CREATIVITY

It is an  important part of creativity to allow ourselves a little time to “play”–a few minutes or hours every week to try new materials and experiment with ideas.

Even if the process leads to nothing more than scraps for the bin, these experiments help a quilter grow by eliminating some ideas and fostering new ones.Bird Mini QuiltI started this little quilt because I wanted to play with some new embroidery threads and because I have a mountain of “quilt tutorials” and practice pieces for which I’d like to find a use.  Read more HERE

Bird Mini QuiltI also wanted to play with hand embroidery-which I have always enjoyed. (Like many of you, I started my sewing life by embroidering.)Bird Mini Quilt

A CHALLENGE FOR YOU

This week I’d like to challenge YOU to “play” with intention.

  • Is there another hobby or skill you could add to your quilting like painting, embroidery, weaving?
  • Is there a material in your sewing room you could use in a new or novel way?
  • Is there a supply that you would like to buy and experiment with?

Summer is time to play!

INSPIRATION

Please take two minutes to watch this video about the Hokkaido Garden in Japan-it’s a very creative musical approach to a garden.  I know YOU are going to love it!

Happy Stitching!
