Doodle Quilting

It was a good sermon I swear, but I had to draw the floral pattern on the blouse of the woman in front of me at church. I think I may have a slight addiction here, but my hands just itch when I see a pattern that would make a good quilting design.Then I just had to stitch it out. Here it is in progress. It's on a commercial batik/dyed fabric and it's on top of Peltex, destined to become a postcard to send to a new quilty friend. I'm trying to make some smaller works and I like the idea of postcard type quilts. It's great practice and practice is what builds those quilting skills. I haven't mailed any yet, and I will just have to put it in an envelope when I do. I'm scared to let something like this travel without protection.

How about you? Have you mailed quilted postcards? With or without envelopes? Have you been compelled to draw a design that's on someone's clothes? At least I've moved on from my crazy quilting obsession where I'd want to take scissors to someone's clothing!
