Early Morning Inspirations

Once again I am in a quiet morning house, trawling the internet while waiting for a baby to go to sleep.

This morning I came across the Doodle Stitch Along at Lark Crafts.  As well as the stitcheries being very cute, I was quite taken by the finished quilt
I'm quite new to the idea of the ticker tape quilt and am keen to try it out.  It's a really easy way to use up scraps by the look of it.  I'd never thought of using stitcheries in this way though!  I have only ever thought about using embroidery in quilts in a structured way such as the baby elephant quilt I completed, or the Birdie Stitches one I am currently working on.
I can't wait to start a new embroidery project so I can try this out!!  It would be very easy to incorporate small embroidery details, such as the little mushrooms above, and not have to have lots of big 'scenes'.

Also at Lark Crafts while looking for all the Doodle Stitch Along posts, I came across a post with these Zodiac Constellation hoops by Miniature Rhino, for sale on Etsy
I've had a plan for an astrological quilt brewing in the back of my mind for many years now.  These could be a bit more inspiration to develop my idea.


  1. Hello Karen, I liked the concept used for scraps and stitchery in the little quilt you featured..Warm Regards, Lyn

  2. Hm...I like that little quilt...and I LOVE those constellations!
