I loved putting images together for my design board, covering it with pictures of things that inspire me. However the challenge this year is to use someone else's inspiration as a jumping off point to make a quilt.
The first board I received in December was Sara Kelly's. It is covered with pictures taken by her husband Gary O'Neill, (many of them in black and white), and inspirational thoughts from various creative minds. hmmm. It has lived in my Studio for so long, it feels like mine. :) And yet I had trouble acting upon the inspiration.
Maybe I'm stuck in a river rut, but it was the photo of the river that immediately caught my eye.
Now here's what I call inspiration:
The Design Boards (along the table):
The resulting pieces (minus the iris in the center):
And on that, I need to go work on the quilt show.
P.S. I think this project may have been my last week's goal? I got close to finishing, I definitely got close. This week's goal? Gotta get the BOTV program together and off to the printer. And make name badges, and get the BOTV blog rewritten and up and running and...well, it's going to be all quilt show, all the time. Hopefully I'll have a minute or two to come up for air. See you then!
