For the last two weeks we have seen how to take a Doodle and turn it into a quilt.
Then we used Wavy Lines to create the Little Village Quilt:
This Sunflower quilt is a sampler of quilt motifs using a Medallion Composition. (Learn more about Medallion Compositions in my Craftsy video (50% off HERE)
All of my quilts begin as doodles–though not all of the quilt is doodled first–usually just a basic idea.
It doesn’t have to BE anything…just try one of YOUR doodles and see how it looks in thread.
I have stacks of practice doodles. Some show promise for a bigger quilt…others are just part of the learning curve.
So when I say “The Little Village quilt only took me ONE HOUR to quilt”…what I really mean is…
This quilt took me twenty years of Free Motion Quilting practice PLUS one hour to quilt!
NOTE-The Sunflower quilt was stitched on my old BERNINA 150 with Aurifil cotton 28wt and Sulky Rayon 40wt thread.
