Unlikely Inspiration

Be open and receptive to inspiration, even from unlikely sources. In her book Inspiration Odyssey: A Journey of Self-Expression in Quilts, Diana Swim Wessel relates her story about waiting in a parking lot with time on her hands, and seeing many different hubcaps and wheel designs on the cars around hers. She sketched the hubcaps in her design notebook, and used her sketches for quilt design inspiration later.
