Machine Doodling 'Celebrate Who You Are'...

Last Friday I posted about how I created the beginnings of this piece which I've called 'Celebrate Who You Are'. Today I want to show you the next steps in this on-going 'work in progress'.

Using an off white thread, I stitched the lines from Sue Pelletier's Loose Woman #1 stencil over the image on the fabric.  I intentionally used a very loose stitch line, going over each line two or three times, to create a very 'imperfect' doodled line in keeping with the text on the piece.
 I outlined the text boxes and loosely traced over the text.

Here are some close up images of various parts:

And the finished focal piece in it's entirety.  I plan to mount this element onto another quilted piece, and then add some hand stitch and maybe some beading.  Hopefully I'll be able to show you the finished piece in the near future!


  1. Linda, This is wonderful! What a great piece.

    1. Thanks Lynda. I'm really happy with how it's coming along. Should be able to post the finished piece soon!

  2. Beautiful job Linda...with all our imperfections, this looks pretty darn perfect to me. xox

    1. Thanks Corrine. It's working out really well.
