The prickly pear cactus flowers are blooming and they have such amazing colors!
I took these photos to one of my image programs and wanted to see the quilt-worthy colors in the flowers. Here is what I came up with:
Not only is there natural beauty in nature, but it can clearly become hand-made beauty in quilting! So, the next time you are out and about and see colors in nature, take a snapshot of them and then see if you can create a quilt that truly exemplifies all of natures colors – surrounding yourself with quilted color love from outside and inside!
btw – Speaking from experience, I do not recommend photographing a prickly pear cactus unless you are very sure-footed.
I have said it before and I will say it again – MANY of the food items that we eat are quilt color inspirations. This is a photo of a delicious pasta salad I made. Take a look at the colors (below the image) that would make a fabulous quilt!
Look no further than your refrigerator for quilt color inspiration!
