Sunday Quilt Inspiration: W E A T H E R

Here's to scheduling a post and forgetting to check on it: apparently I do not know how to schedule nor do I have the memory to check. So a day late...apologies everyone!

lightning, sky, trees, outlines, stars, bad weather, night, orange, birds

Weird weather? Inspired quilts!  Here's hoping you're not having weird weather. Well, nothing worse than our strange hot-today, cold-tomorrow, stuff.  

Bad weather can make good photos, but it can also damage your gear. Protect your camera in extreme weather using these tips.:

I wore long sleeves and a sweater this morning and kicked up a sweat (without the sweater) walking this afternoon. No more of that craziness...I'm keeping an old tee close so I can change quickly when the weather mood strikes.

Camille Seaman is a photographer, born in 1962 in the USA, chasing extreme weather across the country and capturing it at its peak. Some of her clients include National Geographic Magazine & Newsweek.:

Now this...this is just terrifying! Give me the misery of humidity and mosquitoes any time. Yes, the mosquitoes are just as annoying in January as they are in July.

Clouds - variations of white..... This is why I'll fight anyone for the window seat on a flight. Amazing.:

So, a storm at sea quilt surely goes into the weather-inspired stack, right?

Kathy Loomis glacier quilt: Last year I was privileged to go to Antarctica. I've always been a lover of cold weather and the big ice we saw, sailed around and walked upon was breathtaking. I was fascinated by the myriad of colors of blue in the ice, the veins of dirt, the complex fracture patterns as chunks cleave and break away. I attempted to depict these fascinations in my quilt "Big Ice."":

Such wonderful weather photographs--the last one of the Golden Gate Bridge is magical. And all of the weather-related quilts are beautiful. My favorites are the glacier quilt and the umbrella quilt. Such different approaches, styles, and colors, but the two I would choose to own.
