2021 Inspired By

Have you ever looked at a photo and been so inspired by its colors, shapes, mood, or perhaps a memory, that you felt the urge capture that inspiration in a quilt?

Last year, EBHQ’s presented Inspired By, an at-home sewing activity, hoping to stimulate our creativity by offering a monthly photo prompt. 

How did it work? Each month a new photo prompt was revealed at a Thursday night Meetup Zoom.  An email announcement with the photo was sent that same day to the entire membership. Everyone was invited to participate.

Fabric creations could be any size: a postcard, a quilt block, a wall hanging, a table runner, a placemat, a lap quilt, whatever. When finished sewing, many quilters were inspired to share their creation. Their photos were displayed at Meetups and uploaded to the Inspired By Member Gallery where you can still view them, and read how the photo inspired the design.
