On Ideas and Creativity

Garden Ornament

Good Morning, Quilters!

I am fascinated by the creative process.  I love to read about the inspiration behind a piece of art and the process of making art.  Most creative people say they get inspiration everywhere.  The ideas come to them whether they are gardening or going for a walk.

I thought you would enjoy this short video by American director, David Lynch:

Where Ideas Come From (Atlantic) 

What ideas do YOU have swirling?  (Are you consciously listening for new ideas?)

Do YOU usually take the time to write them down?

How often do you take your ideas and turn them into a doodle, a quilt, a song, a novel?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Hope YOUR day is filled with inspiration!

If You Want to Change the World, Make Your Bed (with a quilt?)

 

LogCabin.HandDye.LKennedy002I think you will really enjoy this commencement speech by Naval Admiral William McRaven.  It was given this spring to graduates of the University of Texas at Austin.

Admiral McRaven offers ten life lessons beginning with:  If you want to change the world, make your bed.   (With a quilt was added by yours truly…)

The idea is that small daily disciplines lead to larger things…
