I love learning what makes other quilters “tick”. Where does that creative inspiration come from?
I want to share just one example. Audrey of Quilty Folk posted her amazing quilt “Sunburst” today (here). Isn’t it fantastic? I marvel at her choice of colors and her creativity.
Here is what amazes me…This is the quilt that inspired her.
In 2006, I made a quilt (”Pennsylvania Palette” ) using this same quilt as inspiration.
I had seen a photo on an auction site and I fell in love. Years later I found out that Ann Hermes purchased the quilt and Dawn of Collector with a Needle made the pattern shown above called “Calico Paradise”. I ordered it immediately. I must say that Dawn does a fantastic job with her patterns and I highly recommend getting one for yourself. You can order it (here). Even if you never plan to make it, the pattern is so lovely it is worth owning!
So you see how two people can come up with two such different quilts based on the same inspiration. What makes you tick? What gets your creative juices flowing?
