Drawings of possible border flowers for Free Style Quilting

Drawings of flowers to free style sew onto the border of my
French Rose Quilt
Practicing, as told in class to do, so when I go to sew them it will come automatically, easily.

  1. Hi Lynn , this is great exercise! I like the shape of your flowers!

    Someone, Susan, left a note on my blog today, go have a look if you have the time, she has enrolled a "doodle class" for textile use, very amusing and interesting

  2. Those look good. And count as your daily drawing. ;)
    It is true tho. you get it ingrained in your brain and it does stick and come out much easier. I am finding that out from my daily drawing this month.

  3. I will go look into the doodles class. Sounds like fun and right up my alley.

    I am glad the flowers "count" as my daily drawing, as my daily drawing as mostly been by machine lately! Cheating?

  4. Seems like a good idea to practice these shapes. I can't wait to see the final quilt. Good luck.

  5. Hmmmm...Well they didn't say it had to be 'pencil' drawing. Grin

  6. I've seen quite a few free hand flowers on quilts and it always surprises me that they were done free hand. I guess I doubt I could ever do it.

  7. Annie I am just learning this free style /motion sewing. It's really quite easy. I love doing it. It's like drawing with a pencil. Kind of.


Thanks for leaving your comments as I love hearing from you. Your words of encouragement are why I continue to draw!
