SOUTHWEST INSPIRATION Posted on 14 Oct 02:00 , 0 comments

Too much fun looking through my resource books, cruising through Pinterest, and browsing image searches for inspiration ... SOUTHWEST DESIGN INSPIRATION getting ready for Regina's quilt.

This quilt, a Block of the Month offered by Stitchin' Heaven in Texas called Fiesta de Talavera in White features some graceful traditionally southwestern shapes to contrast nicely with the typical angular hard-edged southwestern piecing shapes. 

And so ... designs began to ooze out from my mouse cursor ... I love being in the "flow zone" but it's also scary because I feel like I have to work really fast to get all of the ideas down so I don't forget. My cad work-space becomes a crazy creative disorganized pile of possibilities. It always takes me a bit to sort through everything editing down to the best and then getting all of the files in order ready for testing and publication/uploading to the store.

These are some of my favorites featuring the blossom shape from the quilt.
