A rainbow of inspiration for you....

Friday favourites - a rainbow of colour

Looking at the above mosaic I think it's kinda obvious that I'm more often than not drawn to items with lots of colour which is probably why I like scrappy quilts more than anything although it's also a great excuse to play with lots of different fabrics ! :-)
This past week I have been inspired by the following items appearing in my reader:
  •  Designer pins by Patty Young @ Modkid boutique. She also has some pretty ribbon collections in her shop. Just saying...
  •  Laura Gunn's sneakity peek of her next fabric collection here.
  •  A new to me blog called 'nanaCompany'. Always inspiring with cute projects and pretty fabrics. (pretty fabrics get me every time!)
  • I'm very tempted to join up with Carina's Christmas stitches class since I was reminded by Susan that it's only 3 months till Christmas!! but not sure whether I have the time.
  • Also tempted to join this quilt along. One block a month sounds like my kind of pace:-)
So what's been inspiring you recently ??

Actually, you've inspired me! I just posted on my blog about a quilt I'm working on that was inspired by one I saw on your blog. I love coming here to see all the beautiful colourful things you do, so thank you!

I just adore the small patchwork coin purse. i am thinking I might try one for gifting. What do you think? Too fiddly? I saw one tute where they used glue instead of stitching.
