What inspires your quilting designs? That question came to mind when I was taking pictures of my quilt this morning. This quilt is one I pieced about a month ago and quilted it this weekend. I felt compelled to just quilt straight lines on this one giving it a modern feel. And as I was trying to find the right location to take pictures the only place that felt right was on the dock.
Then I took this next picture and that is when I thought....could have this been my inspiration for this quilt? Hummm...we have been working hard to get the new dock built! One never knows where inspirations might come from.
Anyway I am really happy with how it turned out no matter what possessed me to just quilt straight lines.
Oh, I just received a shipment of new batting on Friday. Two rolls of Quilters Dream Blend and one roll of Deluxe Cotton which I have not ordered before. It is a 6oz batting ( Select Cotton that I have in the packages is only 4oz) and should have a nice loft when quilted.
