If you’re like me, your quilt inspiration comes from a lot of different places. Maybe you get that rush of new ideas and enthusiasm to create something new from pretty fabric, fashion, fine art, beautiful quilts, quilt books, or even other quilters. I never leave a quilt show without a dozen new ideas swirling around in my head.
But I also love how quilters seem to continually draw from the natural world to invent new and completely delightful quilty creations. From animals, flowers, and leaves to dramatic night skies and sweeping landscapes, the natural world finds expression in our quilts.
Lately, I’ve been collecting pictures of nature that I find inspirational. I’ve gathered a few of them here to share…enjoy!
