Fabric and quilting inspiration from the road

Across the miles in my southeast territory, the quilt shops and independent sewing centers are doing and making fabulous things with fabric, thread and stitch. After I do a double-take, marvel at the creativity, skills and talent, I try to remember to snap a few photos of the glut of inspiration I encounter. Check out a few of the sights... from the road!

Everybody knows your name...

Once you get over the fact that the TV in your room knows who you are... sometimes you can find good art and pattern inspiration at the hotels. 

How does the television know my name???

There is inspiration on the walls, on the wallpaper, and elsewhere.

Just keep your eyes open...
