Why??? Well, to doodle - yes, doodle . . . like this . . . .
and this . . .
and more of this . . . .
The goal here is to doodle, doodle, doodle . . . and then incorporate these design elements in my quilting - a lofty goal - but it can happen! We did a lot of drawing in the class, and a bit of practice on the APQS machines - and then a lot more drawing. Like Jamie says, this is just the "bones" of the designs - each quilter will add their own unique style - I'll let you know what I come up with!
I also picked up a few new colors of thread . . . because I REALLY need more thread . . . ;)
..... aren't they beautiful! I can't wait to use them on a quilt!
This week I also learned how to make clothesline baskets - another obsession! It's a great way to use up scraps, and make something useful. Really, you can never have too many baskets, can you? I figure I'll make a basket with each quilt I piece - you know, something to go with the quilt . . . sounds like a very good plan to me - what do you think? And . . . you can use the same technique to make hot mats, coasters, placemats, purses, beach bags, shopping bags . . . the possibilities are endless!
