Madness Moving On, Photographic Inspiration Challenge

The quilt top proceeded very smoothly.   A little rearranging and the first half of the quilt was ready to sew into it’s 4x8 layout.  The sewn half was then pinned with painter’s tape and hung up on the wall next to the design board.

It was playtime with fabric distribution again.

The browns ended up in every column and every row in a seemingly “random” arrangement.  The blues, yellows, pinks and greens are scattered throughout.   It will be a cheerful bed quilt in a happy yellow room!

Borders were added for two reasons.  My husband suggested, when asked, that borders would help to contain the cheerfulness of the quilt and secondly, they added a little length and width that will be useful.    The quilt will shrink up a bit with quilting and I want to make sure the result fits the bed.

Summer travel provides photographic opportunities.  This week we challenge you to upload one or two of your photographs to our Flickr site.  Please include a brief description of how this photo inspires your creativity.

This is a metal fabricated trash can that has gorgeous lines that might inspire quilting or beading.   They show such energy.

This is the front side of a set of stairs.  The risers are a mosaic of "agates" and the grey lines are the treads.   The rhythm is interesting and the textures are so opposite one another.  Fun to think about.

Meet here next Tuesday.
