Sadly, I didn't take any photos showing whole horses.
This is another image from the zoo that made me think of a quilt, particularly an appliqued quilt.
And then there were the pale flamingos with their creamy eyes and coral feet. (They weren't interested in posing for photos, hence the incomplete face/head in the photo.)
I often see color combinations for quilts but I sometimes find it difficult to find fabrics like the colors I see.
How about you? What are the sources of your color inspiration?
