How did I come up the idea? Well, the thing about this design is that the square is going to be auctioned off at the Schweinfurth Art Center's 10 x 10 = Art. So I thought not only does it have to have a decent design BUT it has to capture the interest of the bidder. That got me thinking. What would I like to buy at an event like this??? What would make me stop and say, "Oh, I like that". The light bulb went off and my latest obsession on Pinterest popped in my head, Vintage Sewing Machines and Notions.
With just an hour or so before work, I took my normal route from idea to quilt and picked a picture. Then it was time to play with different crops. After a bunch of trials I settled on a nice simple one bringing the word Singer as the focal point.

Finally - a good idea - that I can't wait to finish!!
So what have you been up to creatively?
