What was your inspiration for the last quilt you made or the quilt you're working on now?
I will soon be able to put a binding on a quilt I call "Dark Strings."
My inspiration for the quilt was a basket of strings sitting by my sewing machine and the quilt "Snowball Strip" in 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts by Judy Hopkins and Nancy J. Martin.
Since I didn't want a light quilt and since didn't have the fabric to make one exactly like this one, I chose the colors, the size of the blocks, and the corner triangles based on the the fabric I had available.
If you're feeling uninspired you might like to read Diane's post, Quilter's Blocks: the do's and don'ts, at Butterfly Threads. Be sure to read the comments, too.
I hope you'll share a post about the inspiration for a recent quilt.
