Where do you get your Inspiration from?






Sometimes things on pinterest and magazines catch my eye and they get filed in my head for a rainy day.

Reading one of my favourite French crafty magazines, Marie Claire Idees - October 2012  I saw a cute little black board map of France.



and all the vintage school maps started popping up everywhere - which I really liked too

and I cant forget to mention Pip Lincoln who made an embroidery version of an Australian Map

and then I meet Annabel Wrigley at Portland Quiltmarket this year and saw online her awesome patchwork map of the USA that she was doing with kids.....


and then I jumped on the map bandwagon and made my own Australian version!

and...
Its now happily hanging in my studio

Siobhan! It's gorgeous - I'm so inspired to make an England version. I love the contour lines on yours too. Florence x

Hi Florence :) So glad you like it! I would love to see an English version!! makes me think a Flickr patchwork map group would be great??? Maps of the world!

Super idea!

Did you use raw-edge appliqué? Liberty prints are perfect for this kind of scale aren't they.

Siobhan Rogers said...

yep - raw edge & a great way to use up tiny scraps

gorgeous! I love a map & yours is fabulous. I just went to the V&A quilts 1700-1945 exhibition at the GOMA in brissie & one of my favourite quilts on display ( see this pin: http://pinterest.com/pin/71987294017000146/ ) had the most exquisite applique maps in the corners. Inspiring stuff.
