Headed out today to pick up more of the blue/brown damask fabric I used for the vintage bridal shower cake in my gallery. I'm making a larger dummy version of that cake for a show/contest.
I had to tear my self away from the fat quarter quilting squares. So many patterns & colors that would be awesome for cake. Limited myself to 2 pop-art flower fabrics. Electric pink-green-orange on black and pink-green w/stripes on white.
Now I need a reason to make some fun flowered cakes.
Anyone else get inspiration in weird places?
i love the online quilting stores, like equilter.com, for inspiration.
I was walking around taking pictures of the fabrics the last time I was in the fabric store. I'm surprised they didn't try to kick me out.
I do the fabric shops, and paper/stationery and art stores. Plus fashion and home magazines! Anywhere, really!
Scrapbooking magazines, checking out palate and patterns in craft magazines, home decorating magazines for palate.
I'm an avid sewer - so fabric stores are already a danger for me.
Yep - fabric and scrap paper provide a lot of inspiration!
