I love the morning glory shape and design it forms so I thought this would make a great quilting design.
I love the design in paua shells. Paua is the Maori name given to a species of large edible sea molluscs, otherwise known as Abalone. The photo I am using today is not actually a paua shell but a garden ornament that represents a paua shell.
Today's photo is of a monarch butterfly. I have to admit it took me many shots to get one okay photo to use. I didn't use the actual photo image but I did use the photo for inspiration to create a butterfly design.

We are now halfway through our 52 weeks of machine quilting by photo inspiration. Today's photo is of a curved wooden chair. I capture a leaf design and then transferred that into quilting.

Today I decided to go back to the pantry to find a design to quilt. I wasn't having much luck, especially when a can of tomatoes fell on my finger - ouch! That ones going to be black in the morning.
Inspiration in the pantry? I was fixing pasta for my dinner today when I thought, hey the farfalle would make a pretty good quilt design so I photographed it.
So what do waffles have in common with quilting other than they make an excellent way to start a quilting day? Add a little cottage cheese with some canned or fresh fruit and you have a wonderful breakfast. It also makes for an interesting quilting design.
