Wither inspiration?

From where might my next quilt come? Not that I need to add to my Play Load, but I always keep my eyes open for new ideas.

There is the wall at a public restroom,

bathroom wall

a garage door,

a silver and brown tree trunk,

pine bark

the fence around a playground,


leaded windows in a church,

church window

or irrigated fields in West Texas.

irrigated fields

Then I heard a mockingbird singing his spring song--how might that be interpreted in fabric!?!

Beth, about irrigated fields, I had make one. My inspiration was a google picture of Idaho.
It was made two years ago. Completely with silk fabrics, mainly upholstery fabrics.
I'll post a picture on Flickr.

I love the bathroom wall picture. I had done that once, and people probably thought it was weird because it was the entrance to the men's room. But the tiles were so cool looking. Also love the fence and the window!
