Inspiration hits at funny times...
I walked through Target a few weeks back
and saw this shirt above,
and the color palette lit me up like a firecracker!
I bought TWO XXL shirts,
went straight home and started selecting fabrics,
diving in my scrap bins to pull
things that went with it.... and well....
A quilt is born!
( I had no idea the colors would actually look good on me,
perhaps I go back and buy one for me!)
WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO CREATE?
THAT, is what I love about the creative process.
End of story.
That spark of creativity that makes your WHOLE DAY
go into a whirlwind of AH HA's!
I proposed this on my 15 minutes play site, and asked people to find
something that inspires them...
For the WHOLE week, hop over and see what inspires people!
Either it will hit you over the head, or you have
to look for it, and be open to it...
What will it be for you today? What will inspire you and set
you off in a flurry of excitement?
I made a commitment to make one BLOCK a day for this quilt
I have to many projects
on my plate right now, but this will be my 15minutes of playtime...
15 minutes to keep that creative energy connected to my process.
This is another thing that set me all a flurry. Have you seen HISTORY REPEATED??
This is one SMASHING BOOK!
I was influenced by the Patchwork Diva's a while ago, and started making thee blocks above,
which are all finished,but I have not decided on their setting yet... But this new book of there's
gives me lots of ideas... The quilts are made from inspired OLD quilts, but let me tell you,
there is nothing OLD looking about these gorgeous quilts...
Stunning stuff.. go check it out.
INSPIRE US ALL!
