Friday Finds--May 8

   A couple of quilts full of inspiration were found this week.  One solved a problem for me, and the other filled my head with ideas!

From Wedding Dress Blues
 Remember my delimma with the rail fence 2+4 blocks that were too washed out in my design?  See it here.   Well, this "pin" gave me an answer as too what to do with those extra blocks that were not working.  I can use them later in a scrappy one like this!   Or at least do a small version.
A good tutorial is given with various sizes and color schemes....worth the pin!

Red bow
From Timna Tarr

  After seeing this quilt, I think  there is another Bow Tie project in my future!  Visit Timna Tarr for her inspiration  for this bow tie.  She also did a multi-color version that is a knock out.   I love how she used that negative space of white to create interest/light source/focal point.  
   All reds, or using batiks, all blues, or ocean colors......I think this modern setting of bow tie blocks has lots of inspiration potential.  

As always....please visit the highlighted link for pinning to get the details.  
  Happy Mother's Day wishes early.....may you get breakfast in bed, a basket of fabric and thread, and a lot of love.  Happy stitching.

Love the tweaks on the bow tie quilt.
I don't enjoy breakfast in bed, but I'll take the basket of fabric and thread, thank you. : )

Nice finds, I like them both but the scrappy one really calls to me.
