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!
