Sketch Book.....Spines with Curls & Plumes



Here is a curvy spine with 
curls and plumes added to it:

I drew out the very curvy spine.
Then added the big curls.
Then decided to add plumes between the curls.
Note:  I make a note to keep spine curvy, not too straight.




In the next image you can see how I worked out
this design as I went along:


I highlighted the steps 1 to 4
(they aren't in order, but you get the idea)
I worked my way drawing out this design until it
looked they way I wanted it to.
I would chalk out the spine and big curves.
Then go in and begin the quilting on the machine.
