Images to Make You Think And Inspire Your Inner Artist
The beautiful quilt above was made by Sue Cresse. My friend who I met while she took many classes at Asilomar and other places. She inspires me. This quilt won first place and it is covered with crystals and lovely details. Sue and her friend De got into a car crash in Sept, that nearly killed both of them. De broke her neck and Sue broke most of her ribs, her arm in many places, crushed her hand, punctered her lung etc. She is still healing. The loevly thing is she is planning new quilts and what she wants to make next! That has to be healing. Many of us have prayed for her and that her inner artist gets some rest and comes out raring to go!
This girl was photographed when I taught in Galveston last year...I think she would make a lovely quilt! BUT, she needs a bit more color.....
I have two new favorite subjects....farms and farm people and trees. I thought this photo was cool and the following one is a great beginning to your own Tree of Life
The photo to the left came from my files. I am cleaning them out bit by bit and I thought these were very cute and might inspire you to make something very fun! Don't copy it, do your own version.Stay tuned for quilt photos from Road to Calfornia. Please check out my other blog as well. Google "Mary Lou and Whimsy Too"
