Inspiration Comes From Many Places

I went into Bellamia for a haircut a month or so ago. On the way out, I spotted a really pretty crawlspace cover with a sweet flower on it. This is what it looked like.

And this is where I put it. I drew the flower on paper and when I had it continuous, I recorded it on my Intelliquilter computer. Then I played that sweet flower back into the alternating rows of a king size flower basket quilt.

How absolutely clever. Inspiration can come from anywhere. It takes an artist to spot it and know how to use it.

You Rock!! Have you tried to use the books from Dover Publications? I bet you could create tons of patterns from the copyright free designs.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
