Do YOU find doodling challenging? Do YOU have difficulty thinking of what to doodle?
The solution: Start with a grid!
Start with a grid and repeat any simple design to create very complex looking designs.
For this exercise, I used a ruler to draw a one-inch grid. (If you have a grid template-now is the time to use it!)
First, choose a simple design…and doodle a single row, alternating the orientation of the design.
Next, fill the grid with the simple design to create a basketweave effect.
Create a new design by changing the density of alternating grid squares.
Then alternate two simple designs…
GRID DOODLING AND GRID QUILTING ARE EASY!
Wasn’t that easy? The possibilities are endless!
Now try two new motifs…
And quilt a sample…
Then try it with two different threads….
See where we are going here??? Those complex looking quilt backgrounds are often grids!
