Victoria Pearson, photographer. "Deep in the Heart of Texas." Country Living.
September 2013. page 101. Print.
I spent part of today working on my list...going through magazines...winnowing out the chaff to recycle. The danger there is that I get sidetracked so easily. Like when I saw this quilt in a back issue of Country Living (Sept. 2013).
I'm very attracted to the graphic nature of this antique quilt. And I immediately squinted closely to see how it was put together. I think it's manageable to figure it out...even for me.
In the past, I would have torn out the page and dropped it in my old-school manila inspiration file, but it has been ages since I've even seen that file. I have no idea where it might be. These days I just "pin" my inspiration images. But an image has to be online in order to "pin" it, and try as I might (and I spent an inordinate amount of time trying) I couldn't find this photo online anywhere. I finally decided that if I scanned the photo and put it on my blog, I could then "pin" it to my quilting board on Pinterest.
So here it is.
But then, of course, I had to look up how to cite the photo, article, and magazine (because that's just how I am), so there went more time searching the Web.
Needless to say, there are not a lot of magazines in the recycle bin...yet.
