Today I have random inspirations to show you.

This one is a lamp from Ikea.

And a table at my hairdressers.  I can so see stitching this one.

Love the stained glass from Duluth, MN.

And I love the shapes the foam makes in the water.

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. I look at things to see what inspiration I can find. Its just great to have an eye.

    Great inspirations

  3. I owned a lamp very similar in the early 70's; who says things don't come around again.

  4. That foam really is interesting. It would be fun to dye some fabric that way, if you could figure out how to do it. Then not cut it up, just quilt it according to designs you saw in it.

  5. Suzy, you are a lot like me in looking at things around us for inspiration! I especially like the foam on the pretty and just imagine that on fabric! Wow!

  6. I love the colors of fall! There is my inspiration!

  7. Some great inspiration! Like the foam in the water!
