After years working at a desk I find it difficult to talk on the telephone without a pen or pencil in my hand and a scrap of paper to doodle upon. I still take a note or two when the conversation includes something I will need to remember. These days however, instead of a note pad, usually any available piece of paper will do. Sometimes those important notes are hard to find later!
|Silk Eagle Doodle Quilt, 2008, 9" x 12"|
I use these small sandwiches to set my needle tension, practice new quilting designs, or just practice machine quilting when I spend too much time away from my studio. I also make up a quilt sandwich to play with new fabrics, like a piece of silk a good friend shared with me. These small pieces seldom become actual quilts, but they can! My 'Silk Eagle Doodle Quilt' was the result of doodling on a piece of silk dupioni while working out some ideas for an eagle design I was considering for a larger quilt.
Dus, hoe maak je fantasietekening?
