Good Morning, Quilters!
I’m soooo far behind! After our trip to Chicago, I used all my creative energy (and physical energy) decorating the house for Christmas. My husband and I are crazy about Christmas. We have an entire storage room dedicated to lights, wreaths, candles, ornaments, linens, art work, vases………..That’s a lot of trips up and down the stairs!
Unfortunately, I did not get to the Tuesday Tutorial….
Fortunately, BERNINA’s blog, We All Sew is featuring my Pine Bough and Holly tutorial today-including a short video of the stitching process.
It’s fun to watch and I think it is very helpful for many people to see the video as well as to have the step-outs.
Of course, you should DOODLE FIRST!
Doodling is the fastest way to learn a motif and create the muscle memory required for smooth stitching.
If you hesitate for a fraction of a second while stitching-the line will be less fluid.
The more you doodle, the better your quilting will look!
Once you know how to doodle the Holly and Pine Bough, use the motif to decorate your notepad, or Christmas packages, or stationery….
Remember when it comes to doodling,
and candy and people and presents and Christmas decorations—
The More, The Merrier!
