Jejuri Temple Inspiration

Back in 2016, we spent several weeks in India and one VERY memorable Saturday visiting the Jejuri Temple just outside of Pune.

I took a photo of this ceiling as we were leaving the temple and as I have looked at it over the years, I am interested in the dimension that it exudes. Sometimes I only see a flat design when I look, but sometimes I feel as if it has some dimension to it. Perhaps it was painted in a dome and that is the dimension that I see, but either way, I really like it!!!

…and would love to use the pieced circles in a quilt someday!!

Our day at the temple was one of the most memorable of our trip and…..the yellow doesn’t come out!! If that intrigues you, read further……

So….a fun day of sightseeing AND a new quilt inspiration…..


If you enjoy this daily blog, please share it with your friends!!!

Staircase inspiration

Back in 2008, we spent a week in Porto, Portugal.

While there I took photos and made quilts from two sets of staircases…..

This staircase was in our hotel and I have never figured out how to turn it into a quilt…..

….but it sure would be fun to try!!!

Bottles on a shelf

I have always loved the shape of bottles……wine, liquor, olive oil, beer, ketchup… name it, I love it!!!

This photo was taken while on a trip to Italy back in 2010…….

We spent 3 days in Tuscany, visiting with a lovely couple who lived in an amazing villa. If you want to read more about the trip…..

Anyway…..this photo reminds me of those wonderful 3 days.

If you were going to turn this into a quilt….what would you do??
