Use words or phrases as a jumping off point for design ideas. Think about representing the phrase in fabric, or how you can play on the words with an existing quilt block name. Think about the image the words bring to mind, and how you could interpret the image in fabric. Try starting with song titles or lyrics, favorite lines of poetry, beautiful quotations, or even silly jokes! How about this one?
