This is for Linda, about a week ago, linda asked me where do i get my inspiration to quilt. and the explanation that i gave her, i don't know if she understood what i was trying to tell her. i realize that i get my inspiration from life. what i see around me. just seeing what is around me gives me inspiration to quilt. i get my ideas from just looking at things, sometimes ideas come from dreams. i am just coming back from a trip and while i was on the train i was looking out the window and looking at the trees. i love looking at trees in the fall because of all the different colors of the trees. but i never realize that when i look at the trees, i don't see to many flowers. but on this trip all the trees were green and i was wondering where are all the flowers. and the next thing i know i am thinking about making a quilt with flowers and trying to work threadplay into this quilt. i also get my inspiration from other quilters. i love quilt shows and i love seeing other quilter's work on the Internet. seeing their work inspire me to try things, or try things another way that i am already working on. the inspiration to make this quilt was inspired my you linda, because the whole time that i was working on this i was think about the question you asked me and this quilt is call INSPIRATION.

There are certain things I'm more drawn to, but like you it, it is everywhere.

You have a summer quilt here :) Do you change your quilts in your home according to season? I have a particular hard time with creating for a specific occassion/season/theme...maybe one year I will make myself focus on such.
