Building permit #15

Finally it is my turn , I honestly am not sure how I ended up with #15 . 
I was very inspired by one of the previously sewn polka dot trees. 
And I tired to think outside the box by not making a green one.
For sure we can all get in a rut with favorite colors and playing it safe. 
With the coming new year why not challenge yourself to try 
some new techniques and colors.

I am reading several books right now. And was lucky to attend a short lecture by
 Cindy Griselda at Quilt Market this fall. 
I really love her work and her latest book covers the principles of design.
(Always wise to review those from time to time. )

Below is her latest book.

She is not afraid to walk away for a while if her project is not falling into place.

You have to be willing to try, try, again.
When I started quilting the makers told me to have a light, a dark and a zinger.
This has been great advice.

Below is one of Cindy Grisdela's quilts that was on display in Houston this fall.
She has a love and a way with solids.

Well that is my weekly inspiration for now.
Get out there and try adding a few new colors to your work.

Take care and happy sewing.

  1. I love the relaxation I get from sewing and quilting. Sewing and quilting is my "me" time whether I am making something "just because" or creating a gift for a friend. ~ Thank you for the inspiration you share through your blog.
