“I’m coming of a 6+ year sewing break (for the most part). My oldest is 4, my youngest is 6 months and I have an almost 3 year old in the middle. And I’ve chosen now to get back into it. Especially quilting and small quilt projects. And I’ve got the bug bad. Lately my inspiration is coming primarily from my baby boy’s clothes. Just about each time I put something on him I have a visual of how those colors could (and should) come together for a baby boy quilt for someone. Sadly, all the babies being born around here these days are girls. I guess I’ll have a great gift stash for the next wave of births!” Â Â

“I see quilts everywhere! One morning it was a hot air balloon floating above my neighborhood that looked like a bargello quilt! I see a quilt designs in a tile floor, or it may be a man’s shirt at the post office. Most recently, I used a poster that my daughter had made as the inspiration for a cheery wall hanging. http://quiltscapesquilting.blogspot.com/2011/02/garden-quilt.html Most often though, the inspiration and clues for a project come from the design, colors and shapes used in the fabric its self. Yes, fabrics speak to me!”
