I always get inspired when the quilting magazines come in the mail, don't you? There are some really pretty ones in the August 2011 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting now on newsstands. Don't you love this magazine??

See more quilts that appear in this issue from the magazine website - All People Quilt. There are lots of free patterns for small quilts in the archives too. Also, check out the how-to videos! I need some time to go through some of them.
I am also totally inspired to make a small version of this simple quilt I saw in the latest Fons & Porter Love of Quilting magazine. Don't you just love the scrappy antique look?
I think I might even be able to use some of my scrappy nine-patch blocks I have stored away in a drawer that were made with 1 1/2 inch squares. And I know I have the right pink and indigo for the background and sashing.
The latest edition of Quiltmania has a nice review of my new book and their usual inspiring photos of terrific quilts. Speaking of French magazines, Delphine from France sent me an issue of one of her favorite magazines.
Is this not one of the cutest scissors holders you've ever seen? I can't read the directions (French!) but it looks easy enough to make from the pictures.
Well, I certainly can't say I'm not getting enough inspiration. Now I just have to figure out a way to make time for everything.
