    I get inspired everywhere!

  2. Jane Beadle says:

    My creativity is sparked by nature whether the flora or fauna! It always amazes me of things in nature that remind me of quilts…

  3. Chris Jurd says:

    Usually fabric is the inspiration and Valories has been a fav for a long time!

  4. Sue says:

    I am inspired when walking with my dog. She shows me things I would not have noticed.

  5. Laura M says:

    Colour sparks my creativity. When out for a walk, the way the light filters through the trees could spark an idea or the blues of the sky and ocean might start the creative process for a modern quilt. Sometimes the colours in a specific line of fabric will also add the spark.

  6. Sharon knowles says:

    having time to think and dream encourages my creativity.

  7. Rita Romeu says:

    Nature and a well curated art exhibit, other quilters, time for meditation, all stimulate my creativity.

    Nature is my biggest source of inspiration but my fellow quilters also inspire me to try new ideas and techniques.

  9. Judy Stadler says:

    I am inspired by nature, art, poetry, fashion. I could go on and on…

  10. Robin Shilman says:

    Color and textures are what get my creativity going. I find fabric I love and then the hunt for the perfect layout begins.

  12. Ellee says:

    Colors, graphics, and geometric designs spark my creativity.

  13. Barbara Rechtfertig says:

    Lately thread has been speaking to me. It used to be just fabric. Thread is getting so diverse with colors and textures and content it’s just amazing. Who’d have thought we’d have bamboo thread?

  14. MJ Buckingham says:

    Textures, colors, culture influences me… the drive to assemble colors and prints that perhaps should not go together but do with a little finese and imagination. My Mom, who died recently of severe Alzheimers, did not recognize color names but painted her world in bright colors. She influences me still.

  15. Rhoda says:

    I get inspiration from stark contrasts. Like geese in the snow or seed pods on a lonely patch of weeds sticking up through the snow. I do have to admit…I would like to be inspired by spring soon.

  16. s k griffin says:

    Ms Valori Wells is unique and inspiring, a fresh and forward design that is delightful. What a treasure for fabric lovers everywhere.

  17. s k griffin says:

    Nature is surely the fountain head of inspiration for me, the colors give me a deep sense of pleasure, colors combined in various ways help me make a leap and go outside my usual pairings also.

  18. Eleanor Love says:

    Color, texture and mood are what get my creative juices flowing. One of the three sets the tone for the other two. Inspiration is everywhere!

  19. Cherie says:

    Looking through quilting magazines and books helps my creative juices flowing. Plus, walking through the fabric store and looking at the fabrics.

  20. Brenda Wiseman says:

    I can be inspired by almost anything. Something visual, a thought, an idea, geometry and symmetry and the laws of science. Nature and our environment. The human experience and our efforts to create in general.

  21. Jean Calhoun says:

    Color is my inspiration!

  22. melissa says:

    I’m inspired by all kinds of things — things I see, hear, smell. It all has an impact on my creativity.

  23. Judy Tucker says:

    I am inspired by day to day living and what life has to offer with the unexpected. Color plays a large part in my creative life.

  24. Pam says:

    I get inspired by thinking about whomever I am quilting for, and what makes that person happy. I also get inspired by beautiful blogs like yours! Thanks for the great giveaway and for all the inspiration!

  25. Dwana Zahn says:

    sometimes is it just a color combination in a picture or nature itself. I live in the country on a farm and the colors of nature are breathtaking.

  26. Alice says:

    I am inspired by daily living…little things that pop up when you’re not expecting it. My garden, my friends, just each day! Thanks for the awesome giveaway! akronne17 (at) gmail (dot) com

    Seeing all the wonderful things that can be made.

  35. Delaine says:

    My creativity is sparked by seeing quilts that other people have designed. And by the color blue. Thanks!

  36. Andrea says:

    For me, books and in the last years the Internet (blogs, tutorials) have been sources to get inspired. But more than this, the urge to bring joy to someone I love causes my ideas to flow. While enjoying myself I’m enabled to create things to enjoy others.
    There are times in life when grief also can be a source of creativity, then the latter can save your life.

  37. Sherry Pryor says:

    Everyday life offers endless inspiration, delicious fabrics, and prayers for enough time to frolic with my art.

  38. Jackie Thompson says:

    I am inspired by beautiful fabrics. I also enjoy seeing how other crafters have used the same fabric.

    I just think about the style of the person I am making it for or what they have in mind. sonjasmith76@yahoo.com

    Those beautiful threads and fabric inspires me. I love the bright colors.

  45. carol n says:

    Actually I get alot of inspiration from blogs and quilt shop emails!
    Thanks

  46. Greta says:

    My creativity comes from nature, people, art, architecture, just about everything!

  47. Janice says:

    For me it’s choosing a theme & then just starting to play with fabrics and shapes until I get a good design. My art quilt group uses this approach and it’s also very inspiring to see the designs created by others on the same theme.

  48. amy says:

    I get inspired by reading blogs, quilting books and of course, lovely fabrics. I see a collection that speaks to me and want to make something with it.

  49. Mary says:

    Everything around me!

  50. Wilma says:

  52. Sylvia A says:

    I have always been creative, from a little girl on, when I began classical piano lessons for 9 years, then married, started having children and began to crochet baby clothes, than decorating sweatshirts, and as the kids were getting older, started my own ceramic business, where I taught for 20 years. As grandchildren arrived, I started sewing again and then was prodded by a friend to learn quilting. I’ve never looked back, still crocheting for great granddaughters, but quilting all sorts of things for 6 darling little girls, and now, they are my inspiration.

    mburnette912@bellsouth.net

  58. Nicole says:

    A guaranteed spark for me is to CLEAN UP. I have a super small sewing space, so tidiness is paramount, but I love all the potential quilts and ideas that are generated just by putting away and organizing. Thanks!

    And tell Valori I love her “colour of the week” post.

  59. Natalie says:

    I’m inspired by colors and unusual patterns. Also by lots of links on pinterest. So fun to see what other folks like

  64. Brenda Hulsey says:

    I have to wake up inspired before I can do anything the whole day! Sometimes when I see my stack of projects to start it kicks me into gear and I start working on it.

  65. Elaine Gates says:

    I am inspired by beautiful fabric and a new idea of how to speak with fabric instead of words. The ability to use many colors and patterns is an added bonus at this time of year in the Midwest when we are sooo tired of snow and cold. If I win I will challenge myself to create a new beauty to symbolize spring which is just around the corner.

  66. Allison CB says:

    i love fabric – that is the first creative push. I like paintings – so that pushes me to and threads – beautiful threads and laces and trims….then I am off the planet! 🙂

  141. Teri Hackett says:

    it seems lately, hearing about the drama and challenges in friends and family’s lives, gets me to thinking: how can I help them thru this? So, I look for inspiration from memories of happy times, and draw from Mother Nature for color and mood. I’ve noticed Good quality fabrics and embroidery threads bring all the goodness I feel.

    hi there: thank you for a chance to win a giveaway. Great products!! I am inspired to sew for my loved ones when they have a special need. Recently, I realized that my Mother-In-Law was still using a really old book bag for her trips to the library. Also, her son, my awesome husband decided to update his “jeans” for a new pair of Jason Aldean/ Wrangler jeans. So I took his oldest pair and cut them into fabric pieces along with two patchwork quilted squares, lining and sewed/quilted up a “Junk Jean Rejuvenation Project” in the form of a new book bag custom made with a personalized embroidered monogram. Needless to say along with happiness all around I have had several requests to make some more! :o).

  229. Shelley says:

Nature leads me through many moods and urges me to try techniques that might help me create the feelings that it evokes in me.

  237. Arianna Macy says:

Sometimes the fabric tells me what it wants to do, sometimes I see a design in a rug or floor tile that sings to me that that thought make a great quilt. Sometimes it is just looking in the patterns in nature, clouds, the mountains on the horizon, I once was driven to paint a shape I saw in the clouds in the dusk just before dark, it looks like Pegasus. Sometimes I just sit and listen to the waves hitting the shore and am suddenly spurred to create something.

As many have already said – color, nature, a person, another quilt, a texture, the reason for the quilt, fabrics, new patterns & magazines…..seeing someone’s work and thinking I can do that or I might want to do this or that a little different. Possibilities are endless!
