If you have any interest at all in sharing the inspiration for the quilts you make, either before you choose and cut fabric or during the process of creating the quilt, or if you are interested in reading about the quilty inspiration of others, please leave a comment. Better yet, please write a post and link up. Those of us who are interested will thank you. (And please help spread the word!)
I pulled out and matched paint chips (instead of pulling out fabric because I knew I wouldn't be working on a quilt with those fabrics for quite a while). The chips don't match exactly, but I knew fabric wouldn't match exactly, either.
A few weeks ago I pulled a few pieces of fabric (without looking at the photo above) to use on scrappy backgrounds that I posted about in Quilty Inspiration #7 and Quilty Inspiration #9.
I like these fabrics together but I may not use all or them and I've already added several more. I never feel the need to have the exact fabrics that inspire me.
That's the great thing about inspiration: if we keep working/playing, it keeps coming and someone else's idea alters to become our own work.
What's your quilty inspiration this week? Please share and invite your blogging friends to share, too.
