We realize it’s not always about quilting, but it is certainly
always about ‘inspiration’. Here is a great example of how
one of our readers was inspired to step outside the box. Beautiful job,
“About a year ago I happened to read your magazine (May/June 2007) and
was intrigued by the quilt called Nancy’s Fancy by Nancy Martin. My
quilting skills are limited, but I do enjoy cross-stitching. So
I took the pattern layout design and matched the colors to the sunset
picture which is now on the opposite wall in our guest bedroom.”
