Sketch Book......Background Fillers 1

When trying out different filler designs,
I partition the sketch book...

6 sections seems to work best for me:

Rather than fill up an entire page in the book with 1 design,
I can experiment with 6 different designs on one page.

Filler designs can be time consuming to draw out 
1 design on a full page.
6 designs on a page is much more appealing to me.
It is enough space to let me know if the design
is working or not.

When I am experimenting with new designs,
I draw them out as if I had the piece under
the needle quilting it...
keeping my pen down on the paper, moving it as
if it were a needle and thread on the machine.

I never know what will work until I try it out in the sketch book.

The yearling heifers keep me company just outside
the Thread Shed.

The hydrangeas are putting on a show this time of year!
The flower beds are just illuminated with their beauty.

  1. Luann,

    Thanks for the filler design ideas. I see a few I'm going to try out, especially in the last page of designs. Love the one with the bobbles on either side of the double line.
