I’m continually amazed at the never-ending stream of quilty inspiration on the internet. I was trying to get to sleep early tonight, but I started visiting some of my favorite quilt-related sites, and now it’s late and I have to get up early. But I started thinking…where else do our readers go for inspiration? Here is a list of some of my favorite places:
Bonnie Hunter’s Quiltville! If you haven’t visited yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. More than forty free quilt patterns are listed down the right-hand side. These are guaranteed to get you sewing! Some of my favorites are Patches & Pinwheels, Chunky Churndashes and Boxy Stars.
The International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska has its entire collection (literally thousands of quilts) online and searchable. Be prepared, you can spend hours looking at these treasures.
Just for fun, try your hand at the Art Pad Digital Canvas.
This tool gets a different part of your brain thinking, working and creating. Check out other people’s paintings to see what is possible with the art pad.
For color beyond your dreams, try out this Color Scheme Designer.
Click on the myriad options and you’ll be amazed at how this could revolutionize the color choices in your quilts.
Where do you go for Quilty Inspiration? I’d love to know. Leave a comment with a favorite online inspiration and on Tuesday, July 20, I’ll select a winner who will receive a very inspirational box of fabric and other quilty goodness. And hopefully I haven’t kept you up all night!
Update: The random winner is Lisa, comment #50. Thanks to everyone for participating!
