I have a folder on my PC (Quilts I Admire) to store pics of Pinterest quilts I want to try my own version of.  I like them because of technique, or color combinations that interest me.

Bright Quilt 1.jpg 

The photo examples are scrappy which I adore, and modern which I think is cool.  It is simple to see how to build strips in a crazy quilt fashion.  Stitch and flip technique.  Even if I only use the crazy quilt pieced strips for a border--wouldn't that be interesting???

Bright Quilt 2.jpg 

Above photo shows more detail--how it is constructed in strips.  I'm going to use telephone tissue-like paper for the foundation strips, cut into 4" or 5" wide strips????  

This will be a fun type of foundation piecing to try--especially with hand crank sewing machines I like to take to summer/fall shows.

Will you share pics of quilts, and techniques that inspire you?

Oh, why not have a sharing of quilt patterns, magazines and books that we have finished with and would be willing to pass on to the next person at a future gathering?  (I have been gifted stacks from a local quilter.)

I like your idea Mavis.  Perfect.
