Another Wednesday of quilting, 36 weeks in a row in fact. My photo this week is sea foam. This photo was taken while traveling on the interislander between the North and South Islands of New Zealand.
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 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.
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.
