new quilt started

Inspiration can come from many sources. Some of which will not be the first ones you think of, like the pavement. This picture shows some pavement with pebbles.
By sketching the most important lines and enlarging it to the size I wanted (20"x20") I ended up with this line drawing:
Which in turn led to this starting point in fabric. The white is raw silk, the red is a hand dyed one and the black comes out of my rather large black and white stash.
Right now there is still too much white showing, but that can be changed easily by adding more pebbles.

I realy like your "pavement", it's just like you said: inspiration is everywhere, it just has to catch you.
