Inspiration for my quilts come from far and wide. I love scouring books, magazines, Etsy, blogs and Flickr for inspiration. Just recently I happened to be at the right place at the right time, when Victoria from The Silly BooDilly updated her Etsy Store.
I could not resist this gorgeous pincushion pieced with iridescent shot cottons, featuring both machine and hand quilting. I absolutely love Victoria's unique style of patchwork and quilting inspired by Japanese Boro Textiles.
This pincushion sits alongside my sewing machine, has been admired from every angle, and has inspired me to pull out a selection of my Kaffe Shot Cottons:
And the woven checks and stripes:

More on my new project soon.
