Quilty Inspiration #1

Quilty Inspiration link-up at
Hosting a link-up is a first for me.  Let's see how it goes!  Next week I'll share an inspiration post but since this is the first week (and I'm feeling uncertain about the behind-the-scenes, technical aspects of this process) I'll just explain about the link-up. 

I hope Quilty Inspiration will become a place where we can share what inspired us in the creation of our quilts.  So, please link a post that tells about (or shows) your inspiration for a quilt you've made, are making, or hope to make.  What inspired you?  Tell us about the very beginnings, before you put scissors or cutter to fabric.  Did you see a painting that inspired the colors you chose?  Did you see a quilt that suggested the block pattern you used?  Did you remember a quilt you saw and loved?  Were you flipping pages in a book or magazine and something clicked?  Or perhaps fabric itself inspires you.  Tell us about or show us some creative inspiration that may lead to a quilt and/or share a quilt and then tell us about/show us the creative inspiration that started it. 

I've arranged for the link to open on Saturday evening and stay open until Thursday evening.  That should give all of us time to write an inspiration post if we haven't written one already. 

Just a Few Rules for Quilty Inspiration
  • Link a blog post (not your homepage) in which you've shared either a source of inspiration and/or the results of some inspiration and a bit about your creative process.  (I'm sorry but Instagram photos just don't offer enough substance for this link-up.)
  • Link the url for the post, not the url for your blog.
  • Please link back to this post in your own blog post.  You can use the button below (copy the code) or use a text link.
  • Visit at least several other participants and leave comments on their posts.

Grab button for Share Your Quilty Inspiration
<div class="Share-Your-Quilty-Inspiration" style="width: 150px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="" rel="nofollow"> <img src="" alt="Share Your Quilty Inspiration" width="150" height="128" /> </a> </div>

Let the inspiration flow!  (And spread the word.)

  5. Thanks for doing this link up. I'm so far behind with everything I didn't get a post done as planned, but I will at some point. I at least managed to comment on those who did link up.


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
