Design Inspiration

It is quite popular to include elements from Zentangles into quilting, or vice versa these days. I love to doodle with my quilting, and Zentangles and similar doodling gives me a lot of inspiration.

Occasionally, I will use the Bing.com daily picture from their homepage to spark a little exploration of geography with my kids. Today's picture was of a New Zealand landscape. As part of the lesson, we watched a few traditional Maori dances. These guys are fierce! But I was also intrigued by their tattoos and one link lead to another.


These Maori tattoo designs are quite adaptible to quilting, I think! I envision some applique adaptations.
