I am most inspired by the colors and textures that I see in nature.

Carol said...

Colors and patterns both inspire me. I love to use fabrics in the same fabric line and sometimes mix something else from a different fabric line. I'm pretty good at picking fabrics that go well together. Then I find a pattern I like, really the pattern is the starting point. I love new fabric lines and new books such as this wonderful Springtime in The Rockies. And, since I was born and raised in Colorado, love the Rockies.

I LOVE precuts everything coordinates, it makes it all so much easier, for me at least. I can't match very well, precuts have made such a huge difference in my quilting. I can now buy some precut fabric and pick 1or 2 as main colors, so much easier. I love all the colors, like a fabric bouquet in a small package. ;-> Toni Anne

What inspires me are all the fabulous fabrics that are out there now. I'm a recently returning sewer who has been out of touch, and I had no idea there was so much offered out there now. It's so addicting.

Gunilla said...

I am inspired by a lot of blogs! To see all the wonderful things made, pictures and quilters sharing great tutorials, in that being so generous with their time and effort- amazing! I also just love many of the new fabric lines coming out, and keep thinking about what and how to make things... That gives me inspiration!!!

The fall colors always inspire me. That really is an awesome book that you are giving away to some lucky quilter. One to be treasured forever and even passed down to another loved one. Thank you for joining in the Book tour.

The colors of nature inspire me to look at those color combinations in fabric. For me, the fabric leads to the pattern most of the time.

After many years of taking a break from sewing, I am amazed at the beautiful fabrics that are available now! I am so excited about sewing, and it has given me a great gift of giving.

Gwen said...

I find inspiration form prints *and* color-- but I think that color is the thing that really inspires me the most.. and my "favorite" color or colors changes frequently.. hence the totally eclectic array of fabrics in my stash! :-)

Thank you so much for the chance to win this wonderful book!! :-)
