180 Doodle Quilting Designs!!!

I am so super excited to share a new book that I was so very fortunate to have a part of!!!  It's called
180 Doodle Quilting Designs and it is packed with a bevy of Free Motion Quilting Designs to help aid you on your free motion quilting journey!!!

Each design in the book is shared in a block layout, a triangle layout, and a border layout, so you can use each design to really fill the space you need ;)  And its as simple as tracing, doodling, and then free motion quilting!!!   You can watch this fun little video Martingale put together to show just how easy 180 Doodle Quilting Designs is to use ;)  

And if you are wondering what you can practice tracing, doodling, and sewing from me . . . Well there just might be some of my all time favorites which you have probably seen around here in quilts time and time again!!!  You can learn the Swirl and Curl ;)

And then take it the next step to the Swirled Paisley

And then add in one more element with the Swirled-and-Pebbled Paisley :)

And not to forget, my favorite variation to the Swirl and Curl,  my Feathered Swirl.  

And I had one more design selected to share of a different nature . . .my Fireworks design!!!  

I can not even begin to say how excited I am to be able to share these favorite Free Motion Quilting Designs!!!  They really are my "go-to" favorites and I am so happy to be able to share them in a way that makes them easy to see, practice, and do!!!  

And there are bevy of additional free motion quilting designs from some of my wonderful quilting friends!!!  It is such an honor to be sharing free motion quilting inspiration along side of  amzing women like, Karen Burns, Lori Kennedy, Maddie Kertay, April Rosenthal, Vicki Ruebel, Shelia Sinclair Snyder, Angela Walters, and Christa Watson :)

I am just tickled pink to be a part of 180 Doodle Quilting Designs and hope you will love it and use it as one of your free motion quilting resources!!!  And . . . You can even win a copy of it!!!  Martingale is having a Giveaway!!!  So pop on over and cross your fingers that you get lucky!!!  (and watch for a TTGD giveaway day in the near future that will be featuring this wonderful resource as well, so fun!!!)  

Thanks for stopping in today and each day ;)

I hope you all have a very Happy (Free Motion) Quilting Day!!!!
