100 Days – Week of Inspiration – Introduction

It’s the fifth week of 100 Days of Modern Quilting and we will take a glimpse into a few of the things that inspire modern quilts.

As with many other forms of art or craft, there is almost an unlimited number of sources of inspiration for a quilt. It is interesting to hear about quilt inspiration because it often tells the story of the quilt. A quilt can be inspired by another quilt. It can be inspired by a piece of fine art. It can be inspired by a textile design. It can be inspired by color. Inspired by words. Inspired by an event.

This quilt was inspired by a pattern on a rug coupled with a traditional log cabin design.

This quilt was inspired by a baby name, Cici. Can you see the two C’s?
