There are times when whim governs my quilt-design process–I just jump in and see where an idea takes me (believe me, it’s a hit-or-miss strategy). More often, though, my ideas are jumbled mental clutter. I’m sure there’s something doable in the mess, but I just can’t grasp it. One way I dig myself out of a mental morass is by perusing my collection of torn-out magazine pages because I like to see what my subconscious is telling me (sometimes very cool things). Nowadays, armed with a digital camera, I’ve added another element to my creative process by taking photos of appealing things.
Here’s what I have so far . . . enjoy! (Yeah, I know, I’m clearly attached to pinks, oranges, and yellows right now.) FYI: I’ve embedded links in each photo so you can visit the sources that interest you.
