Inspiration May 03 2019, 0 Comments
What is design inspiration? Honestly I am all over the place when it comes to design! Our senses are flooded non-stop with inspiration. I never know when something I see/hear/do will trigger my creative side. I work hard to channel this energy in the right direction, whatever that may be - ha. I want to be a modern quilter and sometimes I am. I'm also very traditional, but then I can be very eclectic as I am also a collector of antique quilts. I love the life that lives in those old quilts, they speak to me. I feel the life of nimble fingers working their way across the layers of fabric, possibly making a quilt for warmth, a gift - maybe to welcome a new life or celebrate an old one. Our quilts tell a story, always. Regardless of their roots coming from a planned purchase or the scrappy leftovers. I love what I do and if you are reading this, you must have my passion and fickle nature as well. So, back to the question - what is inspiration? Today it's a sunny sky and a spring breeze. It's broadway show tunes and the pretty spring flowers in my yard. I found this table topper I made years ago and now I want to finish it... I've been inspired, easy as that, sometimes it just doesn't take much!
