I was in my kitchen when I was inspired.My thinking went a little like this.....
I like the scallop on the inside with the narrow pink border separating it from the white. I like the contrast of the black and white and also the checked "binding".
I like the contrast of the white on blue. I also like the red "binding" and the gold "center". Not as sure about the aqua.
How about appliqued flower petals inside a border like this? AND, how about the undulating line with the red dots? How could I give that effect?
Maybe a more simplified appliqued "feathering" between a blue binding and the gold narrow border.
Maybe I could get this effect with yo-yos placed side by side along a border.
Hmmmm....I like the idea of an applique in a scallop. Maybe even a scrolled design similar to this as the applique.
I'm inspired by so many things around me.....the lines of a pretty gate, the colors of a salad, the circles of irrigated fields as seen from a plane, and on and on. I don't take them exactly as they are. I might like the color scheme or maybe the graceful lines. It might inspire me to put two fabrics together that I might not have considered before.
Let yourself be inspired by the things around you and you will find that the world will look different to you! Find the beauty in the everyday object.
What inspires you?
