doodle#3 Floral fill
white gel pen on black paper - a very fun way to doodle!
 did you know how much doodling can improve your quilting?  I've never been much of a doodler, but I'm taking a class from Carla Barrett - Quilt Whisper - and our assignments include a lot of sketching, drawing and doodling.  I've been an admirer of Carla's quilting for some time - I've been following her blog Feathered Fibers and when she announced she was offering a class, I jumped at it!
I've progressed from this:
sketching from inspiring fabric
to this:
doodle#2 Feather fill
combining doodles
to last night I doodled on fabric:
doodling on fabric
just letting go and letting the doodle emerge!!
Have you been doing any doodling?
Happy quilting!
