from “Quilts in America” by Patsy & Myron Orlofsky, 1974.
Over the last 6 months, I have been receiving “Artist’s Magazine” Each month it provides interviews with various types of artists and lots of thoughts about creativity.
I loved this particular comment…..
This can apply to quilting as well….. instead of making a “flower quilt”, how about making a “petal” quilt or a “sepal” quilt???
Now I need to start looking at things in a different way!!
I friend sent this article from the Washington Post and it is worth a read……
It is such fun uses of traditional quilt designs!!
If you have 30 extra minutes….maybe when you are on the elliptical at the gym…. enjoy this documentary about the making of batik fabrics……
It makes me want to head to the fabric store!!!
This inspiration is a bit closer to home, coming from Atlanta, Georgia!!! I saw this one day while we were driving to the Shakespeare Theater in Midtown Atlanta. I have no idea what this building is, but I love the tile work around the front windows…..
Looking closer, I see a wonderful border pattern……
This just goes to prove that, when you quilt, inspiration is EVERYWHERE!!!
