Free Motion Friday: FMQ Doodling

My birthday was a few weeks ago and I asked my boyfriend for some new quilting books. Lucky me, he was happy to get me exactly what I asked for. Two of them are FMQ specific, Graffiti Quilting by Karlee Porter and Shape by Shape by Angela Walters. They are both amazing! I've been having a lot of fun going through them to get new quilting ideas.

Of course, the best way to practice these motifs is to doodle them. I got these Stabilo pens in a swap last month and they are the best ever for this type of doodling. Plus, I like to change colors every page or so to keep the book extra pretty.

Here's some practice from Angela's book. I really love her signature design - it's instantly recognizable as hers. I'll have to practice this one some more but I think I'm getting the hang of it!

And here's some practice doodles from Karlee's book. I need to practice hers a lot more as I've never been one to just doodle all the time but I absolutely LOVE her style. 

So now YOU go and get your doodle on!
