When the modern quilting movement is described a word that gets thrown around a lot is 'urban' and as I live in the most urban part of Minnesota I strapped on my trusty Canon G10 camera and set out on my bike to see what I could find. Surprisingly I found plenty of quilty inspiration just on my ride to work and back. Here are a few examples:
|Some nice color blocking on my restaurant...|
|...and up the street.|
|Great pavement markings on the bike path.|
|I love this color block on the door.|
|How about this wonky swirl for a quilting design?|
|This graffiti mural is a modern take on a traditional Native American motif. It is also ready made for a quilt block.|
|Jamie's bird rides on his bike!|
And here is a photo of my coworker's bird because I thought it was a neat shot.
My conclusion is that there are fresh, original design ideas all around me and I need to get outside more and seek them out instead of staring at a computer screen all summer. Thanks for following along!
