I took 3 Sketch Books along on our trip...
and I filled 2 of them up
I try to give myself a diagram as to how I should approach the designs when I am stitching them out
onto a quilt surface.
You think you will remember, but sometimes I don't.
It is much quicker to look at my diagram and then I am
off and running with the free motion quilting.
I drew this pebble design a few months ago.
In the one above I echo quilted around the words twice.
I didn't echo around the numbers.
When I stitch this out, I will echo around the numbers.
Irrigation Wheel Lines Design:
Here it is October and many farmers are still irrigating their fields.
Irrigation Wheel Line
This was a FUN design to draw out.
It should flow beautifully when I stitch it into a quilt.
We heard from Heath last night in Yellowstone.
Autumn is brief there.
The park is preparing for a long, snowy winter.
Heath climbed the mountain in the center of the photo in August.
