Today I decided to focus on inspiration. What inspires you?
For years, I made quilts only from published patterns. There is not a thing wrong with that. I just didn't have the confidence to branch out. I'm very much an "in the box" kind of person.
And then one day I was having lunch with friends at a favorite Mexican restaurant. I looked down at the floor and thought, "That would make a GREAT quilt block!"
became Neon Ninja Star, a quilt that was later published in the book, Modern Bee: 13 Quilts to Make with Friends.
This pick of the week app from Starbucks
turned into Missing a Cog.
These Pattern Play block cards purchased for one of our grandsons
became Pattern Play.

So. Where do you find inspiration? My challenge is to look at the most common things all around you. You never know what will spark your creativity.
