Cotton Pickin’ Bee met last week. Got some help with this troublesome motif. It’s continuous, too!  I practiced on paper and now I’m ready to put it to fabric.

You know me. I’ve got to draw it out and break it down. I had been trying to start it at the loop. Well, it’s easier starting away from the loop.

Start on right make a curve down and start back out.

Then, loop back up.

We’ve done this next step on waves and spirals.

curl and back out.

Almost there.  Now just cross the line and echo down.

Then here is the 2nd paisley.  Just continue down the column.  Easy.

Took a little doing, but paisley is done.  Now to go sew it.  But before I do that, I wanted to share a tool with you.  It’s called Kwik Klip.  It saves fingers from getting sore when closing those safety pins when pin basting!

Handy dandy tool.

So here is my practice run photos of the paisley.  This is my first attempt on the machine.  I am pleased.  🙂

Now, I’m going to sew paisleys on the comforter quilt.  It may take a few days, but watch for it in WAYWO posts.

How do you learn a new motif?  Would love to “read” your process!

God Bless!
