Good Morning, Quilters and Doodlers!
Today we are going to doodle fabric patterns!
We all have so many fabrics we love. We can use the fabric patterns as inspirations for our doodle practice. Look at each piece of fabric carefully. Repeat the shapes, continue the lines and then continue the design with your own patterns. In no time, you’ll create interesting combinations and potential quilting motifs.
Dig through your scraps and find one or two of your favorites. (Can you limit it to three?)
Cut the four scraps into wedges or strips.
Then glue all five on pages in your doodle notebook.
Choose a new pencil or marker.
For this project, I used dip pens to create a distinct line. Dip pens create uneven lines which create a characteristic look.
You will have to slow down a little to use the dip pen, but it makes doodling more fun.
Continue the Lines
Continue the lines created by the fabric.
Repeat shapes and create your own combinations.
Don’t over think this exercise. Just play and have fun!
See if any new quilting patterns are revealed.
