Atlantic Inspiration

Despite the fact that inspiration is all around, I sometimes find it difficult to focus on how I want to spend precious time.  Should I work on tried and true patterns in favorite colors or pick up something I've never tried before?  Indecision gets the better of me.  Half-square triangles never let me down but I can also make them in my sleep.  Sometimes I feel stuck.  Really, really stuck.  And that's how I'm feeling now.  So I'll continue to watch for images and colors that inspire me to pick up some fabric and scissors.

There is something about that blue-green ocean view that stirs my soul.  Blue was my favorite color until my mother passed away.  And then there didn't seem to be enough yellow in the world.

Even during times when I don't have the time or perhaps just the inclination to work on a project, I can be quite satisfied reorganizing fabrics or patterns, tools and all that stuff we accumulate.

Hiya Coral, It totally makes my day when I see you've posted something. I look forward to reading them! I am hoping to you to get some inspiration that will bring enjoyment to your quilting studio this week!

I adore your 1/2 square triangle quilts and recently saw some old 1800s quilts (on blogs and in books) that use the 1/2 squares around a center medallion. Just awesome - reminds me of your BIG 1/2 square quilt with the applique around the edges.

Lots of the modern quilt girls are doing 1/2 squares too these days. They are simple, but amazing.

If you feel like connecting online or even in blogland for any kind of quilt adventure let me know! I treasure the times we have spent together!
