Inspiration Wednesday

Just two quick Links to explore today. I have been trying to get all my work completed so that I can take Thursday and Friday off.

However, I am very inspired by both of these sites with many, many wonderfully inspirational things to see. First off this site which has many quilted and appliqued items to gawk at.


Japanese Quilting Crafts

And then I happened by this site which has some amazing applique work. I would love to know where these people find their textiles. Maybe I haven't spent enough time hanging out at my local Fabricland, but if you've been to one, you'll know it's pretty much run of the mill stuff in there. But it's all we have in our area. This applique site has alot of cute felt/fabric combinations. Take a look around by randomly clicking links such as the sold section.

Oh! That applique site is wonderful! It looks like maybe they're needlefelted to the cloth? Hmmm.

Oh Man, if anyone could make use of my Inspiration Wednesday Links you can. Thanks for stopping by, from my brief look at your blog you are very talented!! I don't know about whether or not she may have felted directly onto the fabric. With a pile like that, appliqué would not have shown. Please, if you try it, let me know. I would love to know.

Ok Oops, I must say your observation must be correct. I think those appliques are needlefelted in place as well! Awesome new technique! http://www015.upp.so-net.ne.jp/sourire/hitorigoto.htm
