I'd like to share a few quilts with you that really inspired me. Like this one (below).
The lady who made this stood right next to it and told us a list of prizes she'd won.
Perhaps you've already seen it somewhere.
A beautiful and colourful lady herself, but I did not write down her name, I'm sorry.
Standing in front of it, you could nearly feel the heat of that scorching sun.
And here's and original kind of communication; I remember mostly doing this with my oldest.
Their hearts and thoughts were beautifully embroidered with beads and all kinds of buttons
There were a number of quilts made on the theme: Parade
I love this military take on row after row.
As it was my son Laurens' 23rd birthday, this coffee corner in the church was very apt:
Art quilts with children's drawings as inspiration
And second place takes this huge one. Last year this was a craze in the Netherlands. Building houses from scraps: make a small house every day (by hand or paper piecing on the machine). At the end of the year you'll have 365 houses and a big one in the middle (your own?), which you made in between, somewhere (pattern here on Etsy).
Not my cup of tea (no patience), but I loooooooved this one. So many other things were added: trees, dogs. And all her colours are bright & light.
Sorry for the wrong angle, but I wanted to get all of it in one picture.
Here are some close ups; the dog barks: wraf (what does an English dog say?) She lives next door!
And here are the last ones: Well done YOU!!
The yellow table topper (top right) was made by a 12 year old!
Hope you have a lovely week full of inspiration!
