Loose Threads Challenge

I really must post our Loose Threads Inspiration Board challenge quilts.  My pictures aren't great but I hope you enjoy them.  We each made an board with things that inspire us. Then we passed the board and made a quilt that was inspired from that board.  It has proved to be really fun.  My challenge has been to make an art quilt.  I'm too traditional these days.  I was happy with my quilt till the critique.  I since have been reading and studying up on what makes a successful art quilt.  I just wish I had more hours in the day to develop all I have learned.  But I'm determined!

Sara was inspired by the feather in Barbara's board.

Grace was inspired by the strips and colors in Karen's board

Barbara was inspired by the center photo from Sara's board.

Barbara says her piece isn't finished but I love it.

  Barbara (Sindlinger) was inspired by the Starbucks card on my board. 

Karen was inspired by some of the psychedelic colors on the dog for her piece.

I had Grace's board and was inspired by the orange, circles, and lines.  I have some more work to do to it.  

Here is Adena's board.  She just joined in and we are looking forward to some inspiration.

  1. Our inspiration board quilts look so interesting on your blog. Looking forward to a series maybe with your circles? I can see you're inspiring your students.
