Finding the "IT" With Color and Pattern

Recent conversations with sewing/quilting friends has rather had a theme. In general we are not sure if it is change of season, the stage of creativity where one becomes stagnant or stalled, or just general malaise and disorganization. I have experienced all at one time or another and sadly, some all at the same time!

Reading any journal dedicated to artists of any kind reveals that this is a common thread among those artists. Painters, fabric artists and even bead and clay artists experience this frustration with their work. Why does it surprise me that IT happens with quilters as well. Finding the inspiration can be as simple as being intrigued by a certain pattern. For example:
Thank you Susan, this quilt does indeed inspire!
