Found my inner child and “Doodled” my dog, Rocky. He is a mixed breed; half Basset hound and half Husky.
First, I used a light box and traced the outline with a Sewline pencil.
Next, I put black thread in my sewing machine and free motion quilted the outline.
Looking at my paper copy for the doodle designs, I free motion quilted this cutie in no time. Can you say, “FUN!”
I used denser fillers where Rocky is black and more open fillers where Rocky is white. I am very excited to show a full class of 12 students how I create “Doodle” quilts tonight!
Both of these quilts are 12″ x 12″. Do you want to “doodle” your dog? Simply take a photo. Then enlarge it and draw an outline on paper. Then section the drawing. I use thin cotton batting and wool batting in my quilt sandwich. I used black thread for Rocky and dark brown thread for Sammy. My “doodle” designs are shown in my “Doodle Dog” pattern available at Emma’s Quilting & Sewing and online http://www.inspiredlayers.com.
Send me photos of your “Doodle Dog”.
