Posts Tagged ‘creative block’

I haven’t posted in a long time.  I have been busy hiking and quilting for customers. I haven’t been able to sit behind my sewing machine to make anything.  I hope to soon.

One of my problems is I have so many ideas, I’m not sure which to try.  I also get stuck in choosing which colors to use. They are all so pretty.

As I hiked through the mountains of New Hampshire this summer, I came up with a great idea.  There is an app from Adobe called Adobe Capture. One of the things it does is pick out color combinations from photos you upload.  (Only draw back is it’s only available for iO and Android). My thought is to challenge myself to create a quilt each month using a different picture.

So using photos from my travels, I will be posting a color scheme at the beginning of each month.  Using this color scheme, I will create a quilt of some kind and hopefully post it at the end of the month.  I challenge you to play along.  Even if you only create one block.

Here are a couple of great photos I took just in the past week.

The berries on the Precipice Path in the Belknap Range were just beautiful.  The grass on the Franconia Ridge Trail was such a brilliant orange-yellow it glowed.

I hope to create a link up for anyone who wants to join the challenge.

What creative blocks keep you from quilting? Is it color? Fabric choices? Design choices?  Let me know.  Maybe we can conquer them together.
