New York Part 2: Quilting Inspiration

While in New York, we took some time just to look around the city. Isn’t it amazing when you take some time out, just the places you find, that are inspiring. Here are a few photo’s of things which may land up in some way, shape or form in my quilting projects in future.

  1. Bluish Mod-Style Window facade of the building in middle of the photo. I can already see a great pieced quilt design in this building, the blocks all made of squares, rectangles and framed; each block being of a different size:IMG_7519
  2. This building struck me with shape and the vivid white-black-blue coloring. Once reviewing the photo, I also loved the addition of the orange and red that were captured in the overall photo.IMG_7520
  3. The windows of this building amazed me…I loved the composition of a quartered circle within a square within a square.
  4. The stain glass dome in the roof here, could be the next FMQ pattern I could use for a large hexagon pieced project.
  5. I love the design/composition of this pop art piece. Look at the vibrancy of those primary colors, blue, red, yellow, with the white and black. There is a splash of green which works out perfectly. IMG_7485
  6. I see two things I really like in this photo….the obvious one are the irregular shapes and colors used in this outdoor art piece. Secondly, look at the windows in the background…are those log cabin blocks I see?
  7. Lastly, I was super impressed with the walls and walls of M&M’s. The photos were made at night, which is not the best, but hopefully you can still get the idea of a cool striped quilt or blocks out of these:

Linking up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced WiP Wednesday (after all design is part of the work in progress right ? )

      Thanks :-)…Before I forget, the paints have not been fixed yet…so before you wash it put it in the dryer to set. Let me know if you need more directions….pink just isn’t my color 😉

    I love seeing Manhattan from someone else’s view point but it was so good to see that you’ve photographed some of my favourite buildings, looking forward to seeing how you bring all this inspiration into future projects 🙂

      Thank you for your timely post…I had lots of fun in the City Quilter. My 5 year old son must of taking about 20-30 photos of the store and all the fabric, he loved it too 🙂
