Are you ready to go this morning? Do YOU have your Doodle-Do pad ready?
(More importantly, have you had your first cup of coffee???)
Our Ridiculous Rooster is ready for the day–so let’s get crackin’!
THE RIDICULOUS ROOSTER-A MACHINE QUILTING TUTORIAL
This motif begins with Mr.Rooster’s head and ends with his tail. It’s best to tie off between each motif.
Begin by stitching a tight clockwise spiral, ending on the left side of the spiral.
Add a triangle beak and several loops to create the comb.
Stitch to the bottom of the spiral and add four curved lines, ending on the right side.
Stitch a large scallop to create the body of the rooster and add several tail loops.
Stitch a larger scallop to create the bottom of the rooster’s body.
Stitch inside the rooster to create a wing. Be creative here!
Echo stitch the body and add two legs.
Finish with a flourish–the Curlicue Knot!
