These are some of the things I came across:
A hand-dyed muslin creation over at Going to Pieces
Larkspur Lane Designs has this cute number:
Over at The Free Motion Quilting Project I found this one:
This is all about the quilting pattern rather than the fabric, which is not something I'd initially thought of. I have a little experience with sewing bubbles.... several years ago I entered a competition to make a 'Bubble Dress' for a well known sparkling wine company.
Whilst not really bubbles, I also came across this one from Lesley Brankin Quilts:
Donna, over at Kindred Crafters made this lovely effort:
Another one that is not bubbles, but some fun that came up in my search results was this Twister quilt from Gen X Quilters:
Twister key ring. It was a small box with all the dots inside and you were supposed to lay them out on the floor to play the game. In my younger (single) days I used to think about making an outfit out of it and wearing it to nightclubs to help with meeting boys! What a pick up line "you must place your left hand on blue!".
Finally I found this lovely one on Flickr (couldn't work out how to include the photo here though). I always love a good silhouette quilt, and I especially love the way this one mixes the silhouette of the girl with the coloured bubbles.
So many lovely designs there.... I'm so inspired to go in different directions to my original idea, but I think I should get it sorted out first, and then move on before I forget where I started.
What have you been inspired by lately?
