Ideas for any creation begins with an inspiration. What inspirers one to come up with the idea for a new work? It can be a quote, a photo, a bird song, a touch, a dream … it can be anything.
Though all the quilts in this series are inspired by something I chose a few to place in this category. The inspiration and variety of techniques and medias that they use to create their final work of art in itself is an inspiration.
Note: I will be dividing the quilts up into themes for this presentation. The center does allow photos (no flash!) as long as the photographer gives credit to the artists (always!). I did not take photos of every quilt. Most are for sale. Contact the center or go on their website for more information. Or…better yet…go there yourself and experience this magnificent display of a beautiful art form.
