This week's inspiration is a cactus plant. I used the idea on a small scale, but thinking about it further, I wonder how it would look starting out in the center of a large quilt and working your way out to the edge.

While out shopping I saw this really cool packaging design. I thought it would make a very different quilting design so snapped a photo.

I've been back in the pantry. Today I crumbed a chicken breast for my dinner and noticed the wheat design on the breadcrumb container. I thought this would make a good 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.

Whenever I am out walking, I look for designs. Designs for quilting or ideas for making a quilt. I always try to take my camera to capture images so I remember them.

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.

The other day when I was making my latest flower block I thought the dahlia would make a really cool quilting design. I liked this flower in particular so thought I'd use this photo today and create a double petal design.
