Sketch Book.....Quilting Inspiration



When I am unsure of a quilting design,
I draw it out in the back of the sketch book...


It is easier working in the back of the book.
I know that sounds silly, but it works for me.




The first pages of the sketch book can be intimidating!
Leave them blank.....start drawing in the back of the book.



 This is also excellent advice:
Fear of Failure can be crippling...




 This Sketch Book costs $5......and I am worth that.
I can draw anything I want in here without worrying whether
it is good or perfect.




 It is my little book of drawing experiments.
I am inspired by a design (this one from the carpet in a hotel lobby),
so I draw it out to see what happens.











When you are testing out a quilting design,
behave as if the pen is the needle, the paper the quilt sandwich.
Keep the pen down on the paper at all times, as if you are quilting.



 This is also an excellent attitude to adopt:
 What are you waiting for?
Start drawing today...
