I like to warm up before I begin
sketching or stitching...
My warm up design is usually a
feather or leafy vine like this:
I call this.....Big Leaf Vine
This design gets me warmed up and loose so I can
sketch in my book or stitch into my quilts.
Because it is my warm up design...
it is so enjoyable to stitch....it relaxes me.
27 years ago I only dreamed of machine quilting...
After years of practice and dedicating myself to getting
as good as I want to be with machine quilting...
I can stitch out the big leaf design and be totally happy
with the quality of my work.
You can add curls to the inside of the Big Leaf Vine
You can echo the leaf inside the big leaf vine
You can add large veins inside the big leaf vine
Challenge yourself to try new designs.
I added curls and different shapes of leaves
to this big leaf vine.
Get out your dry erase board and try out a design...
it just might become your Warm Up!
