Quilty Inspiration #2 - Circles on Earth

Welcome to Quilty Inspiration #2.  I hope you'll decide to link up.  Share some bit of inspiration you've received for either a quilt that may be, a quilt that's in progress, or a quilt you've already made.

Here's my bit of inspiration for the week.  These are aerial photographs of earth from Earthview.  The arrangement of shapes make me think of quilts.  (You can click on any of the images to see them larger, then click again to see them even larger:  I'm not using Lightbox.)

I may never make a quilt based on any of these photographs but who knows what my brain will do with the images or how it will combine them with other ideas.  Circles have been on my mind for a while.  These images just add to my ideas.

Now it's your turn to share your inspiration.  Perhaps you were in the middle of a quilt and changed directions from how you thought it would be.  Share what happened.  Maybe you read some words that created an image of a quilt in your mind.  Or maybe you were sorting fabric and the colors inspired you.  Please share.

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 other participants and leave a comment on their posts.

  1. Thanks for hosting again. I really enjoyed the blogs posted so far.

  2. Me too! I think this could be a great linky idea... just need to get a few more people on board. I know Instagram, etc are a quick way to share your work, with no added explanations required, but I really enjoy reading about that initial inspiration, the processes involved, and how each ended up where they did.


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