Sketch Book.....Leaf Designs 5

More Leaf Designs from my

Quilting Sketch Book...

Again, I chalk out the basic leaf shape

on the fabric...

Then fill in the leaf with designs.

If you can draw out the designs without

your pen leaving the paper...

then you can stitch them out onto your quilt.

Your pen is the needle...

your paper is the quilt.

Draw the designs out a few times on paper,

then go to the machine and stitch them out

onto your quilt.

This Doodle Leaf was inspired

by the design below...

Bubbles, Swirls and Curls Fill Design

More Leaf Designs to Come...

A trip to the Aurora Colony Museum:

Vintage Linens.....For Sale

The museum is located in Aurora, Oregon

The museum hosts a quilt show

in October each year.

Always FUN to see the vintage quilts on display!
