Today's Inspiration: Quilting with literature

I was over at Kirsty's, as usual (I wish I had more hours in a day to get to all the Creative Spaces each week), and at link #1 was Kate's One Flew Over and her beautiful quilt.  Not only is it a beautiful piece of craftswomanship, but I really liked the printed word sections.  I'm not sure how she found/made those sections, but I am inspired to work pieces like that into my work.  Pick a favorite or interesting passage from a novel, cookbook, etc., print it onto printable fabric and add it to a yet to be determined creation...

All these wonderful inspirations floating around and so little time.  How do you all do it?


  1. I'm visiting from Kirsty's. Funny you should mention printing your own fabric. I've just made a postcard for a swap. The theme was "love" so I printed the words of a John Lennon song onto fabric and used it as the background. I just wrote out the words, scanned the paper and then printed it. Lots of fun and limitless to what you can print. Give it a go, it's huge fun!!

  2. Thanks so much for the quilt love!

    Words on fabric looks great, I think the one I used was a japanese fabric but I reckon having a go yourself would be fabulous.
