Quilting with Nature

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:

Cactus

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.

    Food for Quilting Colors

    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!
