And the moment of truth...which is that Pinterest gets a bit confused with the search term "paper bag quilts." I get it. It's not a normal search phrase, but I'm not anything close to normal. In the end I had to relinquish and let Pinterest have a win. I do have some things going on tomorrow that requires my being up an some insane time of the morning. It's so early, that I won't even mention it. So here's what Pinterest offered--bags, paper piecing, and EPP.

I suppose we'll call this one a bust. It's not bad I suppose, but I like the rules of finding quilts inspired by the inspiration theme. Ha, does that even make sense? Even more important, did YOU find some inspiration in today's post?
