OMG- I Pebbled Something!

So, last night as I was practicing my quilting, I decided to get crazy and try pebbling.  I was pleasantly surprised that this did not look too bad.  It seemed to be very forgiving.  I am usually so chicken to venture outside the box (The box of meandering) that everything looks the same to me.

A couple things that I realized.  First, I practiced drawing these pebbles on paper.  You should see my notebook at work.  Oh, wait, you can.  Duh. 20160812_083523 While I am sitting in meetings, I am often drawing (practicing) my quilting designs, sometimes I am doing it on my Surface computer.  Funny thing, I feel my drawing often looks better than my quilting (Someone actually asked me if they could have my swirls doodle once).  But it helps get the flow down for me.

I think I need to watch more Leah Day videos and get crazy with another design.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. I think they actually recommend doodling on paper before you do it by machine so good job 🙂
    Have you ever taken any Craftsy classes on machine quilting? I took one by Leah Day and it so informative ( I know the classes can be a bit pricey sometimes, but I have noticed that if you put it on your “wish list”, it miraculously goes on sale soon after 🙂 )

  2. You did! Congratulations, it looks terrific to me. I always practiced my freehand designs on paper before I did them on the longarm. Some people use Etch-a-Sketch the same way, but I liked pencil and paper. =) I keep them in a composition book – the kind with a spotty black and white cardboard cover – you can find them everywhere school supplies are sold. A nice friend made a cute little fabric cover with ribbon ties for me. =)
