Summertime is often a time for outdoor music festivals, a musician playing on a street corner, and music wafting through an open window at night.
One of my great inspirations is music, and all of our children have become musicians and music lovers. We often are going out to hear them perform, or going to hear live music in the community.
One of my favorite ways to get creative is to load up my multi-CD player with several hours worth of music of a particular genre, to evoke a certain mood that I want to express in my creative work. Jazz, classical and world music are all favorites, plus a few pop favs like Sting!
I like to play around with the settings on my camera when I have a chance to photograph an interesting subject, as I did last week at a jazz club. Here is a black and white mood photo, with a collage of eQuilter fabrics.
You can put fabrics in your shopping cart and then dump them onto our Design Board to play around with color combinations, as I have above. We know your favorite part of starting a new project is auditioning fabrics, i.e. playing around with your real or imaginary stash! Me too!
I wanted to let you know that Dana's heart surgery today was a success, with the best possible outcome, so thank you for all your prayers and good wishes. We are starting her Healing Quilt shortly so if you are still sending an 8" purple/green Heart Block for our project, drop us an email so we can save a spot for your block!
My new studio's flooring goes in Thursday, and then we start moving on the weekend!
