I'm curious! How and when did you learn about color? Do you rely on what you learned in your schooldays? Have you taken formal color or quilters' classes? Do you still struggle with color? Do you work intuitively?

My 52nd day of quilting designs. Woo Hoo I made it! Today's inspirational photo is of a wire frame design which is a decoration above a door however could also be used as a hanger for a small quilt.

Over the last few weeks I've been using Christmas themed photos for inspiration in quilting. First I used the bell cookie cutter and second I used a real Christmas tree. This week I'm going to use a stack of Christmas gifts.

This has to be a milestone, 50 weeks worth of machine quilting with a different post and photo of inspiration each week. Last week I showed how I used my cookie cutters for inspiration. This week we will continue with the Christmas theme. Now I know you've all seen one of these. Have you thought to use it as inspiration for quilting?

I was out shopping and bought some cookie cutters for a project I wanted to make - no not cookies believe it or not - when I decided that these cookie cutters would make really cool quilting designs. There were six cutters in the pack, but I decided just to make one into a design.

This week's photo is a little difficult to see, so it would be easier to go in search of one and study it. I'm talking about a cobweb. We all have an idea of what one looks like, but have you really studied one up close? They are amazing. You can see how interwoven they can be.

Yesterday I gave out my ripe for yummy pumpkin soup, today I'm going to use that same pumpkin as a quilting design. I used a straight bird's eye view of the top of the pumpkin to create my design.

Pretty much every day I am on the computer using some sort of graphics, text or photos. Every day I write in some form (blogs are a good example), so I thought why didn't I think about this as a quilting idea before. Fonts. Selecting the right fonts can make excellent quilting. I decided to target one word and write it in one of my programs.
