Day 14 of quilting. As I was walking along the sidewalk near the park I noticed a piece of pine tree broken off laying on the ground. I figured I can make a quilting design of this so snapped a photo.

Today's inspiration photo is something you most likely see a lot - floor tiles. These kitchen floor tiles are various sizes so make for an interesting design.

Last week's photo was of palm trees. I created a quilting design that could be used for a border or over all design using the whole tree...

My machine quilting photo today is palm trees. How could you use this as a quilting design? Maybe a border design? Perhaps a fill-in design?

The most obvious place to look for a quilting design is probably in the fabric you are using to make your quilt. This is especially so if using a floral or print, but you can also find design ideas in batiks and other fabrics.

Day 9 of our machine quilting by inspiration. Last week I mentioned making larger designs for a border or over all design - an iris was the subject. This week I am continuing on with that same thought using a rose leaf instead.

For my machine quilting days so far, I've been working with mainly fill-in quilting stitches. For the next two weeks, I want to use a more open design which could be developed into an overall quilting design or border design.

What do strawberries and quilting have in common? The other day I was cutting up some strawberries to eat - they were large so I cut them down the center. As I was doing that, I discovered a cool design inside. Who would have thought to look for a quilting design there?

Would you have thought to use a tree, bush or plant as inspiration to find a quilting design? That is what I have used today. This shrub was ideal, I could see an obvious quilting design.
