Getting Inspired by Little Things
When you get ready to make cats in a quilt as I did with this quilt from the Out of the Box with Easy Blocks book think about why a cat has to be brown, black or gray...isn't a cat better with color and prints? I sure think so.
Quick! Name three things that blessed you today! Now try to name seven more....
I think maybe this is true....
And we complain about carrying our machines to our workshops...am I right? And she is smiling too!
I am always inspired by different things I run into. Today Connie my neighbor and I were looking at a quilt made a couple of years ago by someone who had seen this I guess. It was pretty close. I am thinking myself that I would like to do an American flag bright colors and fun shapes different than this but this led me to think of new things. Pinterest does alot of this for me. :0)
Can you think of a flag (American or not) that you might do some change on? This is what invention is all about.
Someone in my Hoity Toity Houses class in Florida started this quilt and I just loved how her nest looked with the colorful fabric and texture. FUN and is going to be a super quilt!
I was just taling about solids today and how they differ from prints...I think they show every little goof up and detail. I had someone send me this photo and I think it is very cool and so easy to do the hoochy method way too.
Speaking of solids, look at this painting...wouldn't it be cool in some small patterned prints? Very happy and whimsical and colorful too!
This map made me laugh because it is so silly. I got this from Facebook....
I loved this photo from my library because it looks like an Edwina Hughes piece..she has inspired many of us with her wonderful style
This quilt is by Roxanne- Roxanne has one of the BEST quilt shops in the world...go to Carpenteria and you can spend a day there! Ask anyone. Great people, great fabric and great fun and she inspires you with her ideas too!
And finally here is a gift to you to listen to and be blessed. It is so true and a nice thing to listen to before you go to bed....
