Free Motion Doodle Birds
Free motion quilting and doodling naturally go together. For this workshop Claire created many different 'Doodle Birds' from just thread and paint. If you enjoy free motion quilting this is the class for you! Choose a bird to make - or better still, create your own unique Doodle Bird. Once you have made one you will want to make more!
Claire uses acrylic paint, fabric medium and Derwent Inktense pencils/blocks in the class. Fabric markers and commercial fabric paints would also be suitable.
Important note: This is not a class that teaches Free Motion Quilting, but the more experience you have, the more ambitious you can be.
In this live and interactive online class Claire demonstrates how to create different types of doodles which translate well into stitched free motion quilting patterns. After stitching Claire then shows different painting techniques to complete the design. Participants can ask questions and chat throughout the demonstration. The same techniques are used to create all the designs you see here, so participants can make any of the designs they wish or even create their own. It is fun and informal and suitable for those who are comfortable with free motion quilting.
