Did you know all line drawings are made up of lines in these five shapes:
- straight line,
- S curve,
- spiral, and
in different combinations? Look at a line drawing or quilting design you want to reproduce and analyze it by breaking it down into the shapes that apply. Repeat the shape names to yourself as you quilt/draw the design.
Understanding this simple concept will give you the courage to try complex shapes without marking. It was a major breakthrough for me.
