Sunday Quilt Inspiration: EMBROIDERY

I discovered a fabulous Pinterest board filled with embroidery stitches, designs, and patterns curated by JudyK. Oh Judy, the designs are absolutely stunning! I want (very much) to play with some embroidery for a while. Actually, I've spent the last 15 minutes toying with the idea of starting a small piece that could become a pincushion.

Once I started choosing pictures from Judy's board, I found it difficult to stop. There are almost 500 gorgeous pieces and tutorial photos. After pinning many to my own "embroidered, ribbonry" board, I decided to get back to the task at hand...quilts!

I have this pattern & the quilt is on my design wall.  I've changed it 50 times.  Hope to get it done soon.  This one is beautiful.Now this is talent! Beautiful job of quilting that makes the quilt design come alive.

Talk about inspirational.  I must make something like this...

I think I've been gravitating toward circular designs, so maybe they are trying to tell me something. Do you think the circular designs in the embroideries may have influenced my quilt choices? lol Maybe I should change the post title.
