Inspiration in the Everyday

Taking photos from my everyday life and finding design inspiration in them. Inspired by my participation in the Quilt Design A Day (QDAD)  group on Facebook.

May’s inspiration is our usual sidewalk.


My first design is a study of perspective. I began with vertical lines growing smaller towards the center. Then I duplicated and rotated this set of lines 90 degrees to make a lovely crosshatch.

 The second design is inspired by the line of lampposts. Once again I started with the vertical, then duplicated and rotated the set 90 degrees. When a design is not quite right, this is my favorite method to play with my idea.

The third design is another study of perspective.
