2021 Inspired By
Inspired? By What?
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? Well, here’s your chance!
EBHQ’s latest at-home sewing activity, Inspired By, hopes to get your creative juices flowing. Everyone sees something different when they look at a picture. If our photo prompt inspires you to design a quilt, go for it! Your fabric creation can be any size. Design a postcard, a quilt block, a wall hanging, a table runner, a placemat, a lap quilt, a bed quilt. You decide.
How will this work? Each month a new photo prompt will be revealed at a Thursday night Meet Up Zoom. The announcement will be sent on the following day via an email to the entire membership. Each new photo prompt will also be added to this webpage.
You can join in any time, sit out for a round or two, or complete every one. You can make more than one quilt each month if you want. We encourage you to finish your piece in a month, but take your time, show it to us whenever it’s finished. Quilts don’t have to be quilted to be shown.
How long we continue with Inspired By depends on the response of the members, but we plan offering a new inspiration for at least the next few months.
When you’ve finished sewing, you may be inspired to share your creation. Here's how and where:
Our second photo prompt is a flower taken by Paul Hennessey, Susan Dague’s husband.
