I rarely need instructions to make a quilt but I do look at a lot of quilt photos to find inspiration. One of my favorite sources is an eBay search. The iPad app allows me to quickly view lots of quilts and only zoom in when one grabs my attention.


This is a quick drawing I made last night to capture one idea I found on eBay. It will be perfect for my 2.5 inch strip challenge I’m doing in 2014. I haven’t drafted the entire quilt … Just enough to point me in the right direction when I’m ready to start.

    I look forward to seeing this quilt. I love that it would be simple to make but elegant. You are giving me inspiration. I just might have to make one.

    What a good idea…I had not thought of this. I use Google images a lot for ideas. Looking forward to the 2.5 Challenge !!!

    I am afraid to do that….the last time I looked at quilts on ebay. I bought an unfinished top. Not that I needed it. But the biding was just so low. I couldn’t resist.
