Whats on my inspiration wall?

A couple of things have really inspired me in recent days and i do hope, they will eventually inspire a quilt creation of some sort.

Sochi Patchwork

Did anyone else see the beautiful patchwork based paraphernalia for the Sochi Winter Olympics? I really loved the colours, design and patchwork foundation.... so pretty

Check out the Bosco site for history behind the making of these gorgeous designs....

I'm wondering how i could turn this design into a pattern easy to patchwork? Perhaps triangles? Suggestions? I really like the idea of isolation colours by dark to light too.

Mokoh Design Eco Greeting Card

The other thing that has got me pondering how to make a quilt pattern like it is a card i bought the other day. I really like how the colours are grouped and the triangular/diamond shapes that create the blocks of colour..... a little like the Sochi patchwork i guess....

Linking up with Gemma at Pretty Bobbins for I Quilt Thursdays at Pretty Bobbins


  1. That card! has my wheels spinning too - SO into triangles lately! There has to be a way to pull that off with fabric! :)

    1. It sure is funky isn't it! I think it will sit on my inspiration wall for quite a while. I do hope to work it into a quilt top later in the year....I don't usually work much with solids, but this could be a good opportunity to work with varying shades....thanks so much for your comment! Let me know if you have any ideas....

  2. Your triangle quilt is looking fabulous! I am also wanting to respond to your kind comments left on my blog. But you are a no reply blogger. Check this out if you would like to receive more replies. http://www.venustrappedinmars.com/2013/06/google-ultimate-no-reply-blogger.html

  3. I did see those beautiful Olympic diamonds and got very excited too! I actually think I saw someone had created a pattern. If I can remember where, I will let you know.


Wahoo.....I'm always stoked to receive comments so thanks so much for taking the time.

Wishing you many happy quilting hours!
