Inspiring Photos

Since I've been busy this past week quilting and completing some neglected household chores, I don't have any new photos of quilts to share. I have a gorgeous customer quilt on the machine now that will be done in a few days if all goes well. I also have several fabric postcards ready for embellishment and finishing. I'll post photos when I have them completed.




In the meantime, I thought I would share a few photos that have been the inspiration for a few of my landscape quilts. I've done a bit of traveling around the country as well as a few trips across the seas into Asia and one trip to the Yucatan penisula of Mexico. Some of the most inspiring landscape for quilts has been on trips through the western United States.





This photo was taken from the north rim of the Grand Canyon. I have a small quilt in progress from this photo. It's appliqued and ready for embellishment and quilting.



The photo below is from Southern Utah. I made a small quilt using this photo as inspiration and it is hanging in my living room now.

This photo is the Double Arches at Arches National Park. I haven't made a quilt from this photo yet, but it's on my "To Do" list. This quilt will need some time to complete.

You need to e-mail me when you've done these quilts. We were just there to some of these places earlier this month. We also got lots of good photos. I want to see what you do.

I'll try to remember to do that. It may be a while before I get them completely finished, but my goal is to have them done within the next 3 weeks.
