In the last blog we talked about finding new ideas from former art, perhaps taking just a section from another painting for inspiration. I really like this piece of another painting, especially the colors.

It has been awhile since I designed a quilt, but somehow, I couldn’t help but see the possibilities in this painted image for a new and simple quilt idea.

Of course, the textured, multicolor fabric does not exist yet, except in my own mind right now. It would be great fun to create the fabric, maybe on Spoonflower, and then make this quilt! (Spoonflower is the company that will take your image and make it into your custom fabric.) I haven’t tried this yet, but would like to sometime!

So a certain visual idea can beget a newly created one. How have you experienced this in your own life? Isn’t that why we take ourselves out to shops and art museums, to get new ideas? Such a good practice, to keep those creative ideas flowing.
