I am inspired by anything that catches my attention in the world around me.

Lara Gibbons

There are so many places to be inspired by colour, just looking out the window at the changing landscape is great. My biggest trouble is then trying to convert to fabric. Sometimes fitting a fabric to my palette is tricky and other times it results in an unexpected combination. Congratulations on the book and thanks for a give away.

Kathie L

I get a lot of inspiration from other quilters.

Lisa Marie

I see color inspiration outdoors, and in photos in books and magazines, and especially in my sewing room where at any time a couple fabrics may catch my eye and lead to inspiration. This book looks wonderful, thanks for the chance to win! Enjoy that grandbaby!


I have to echo your comment . . . anything and everything!


I love City Quilts so I can't wait to see your quilt in this book. Thank you for the giveaway !

Joyce Mitchell

Cerise is beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win.

katie r

I usually like contrasting colors- especially in things like stationary or pillows :)

Jill B

I find lots of inspiration for colour in nature.

Cindy A

Oh, I like the new Cerise color, nice.

Deb DeChurch

Inspiration comes, for me, from many things. Daily life, nature (especially sea life), and works of art that I love. ddechurc(at)indiana(dot)edu

Tracey @ The Peony Teacup

What can I say? I'm a sucker for pink and purple.. Cerise and Wisteria FTW!


I love color, my inspirations comes from a variety of place, nature, furniture, and old books, and vintage clothing,


I get inspiration from photos a lot of the time. Congratulations on the new grandchild.


I've been noticing the colors in some of my floral tops and think it would be fun to get the solids of those colors and see how they look together in a quilt!

Carol Y

Sometimes I get inspiration from nature, sometimes just from a particular print. Like you said - everywhere!


I find color inspiration everywhere, everyday, all over the place. It's there if you just look for it. Instead of thinking the leaves are green and the sky is blue, really really look at the colors you see. Colors are so much more than the image of it we've come to know. Love your City Quilts book by the way.

Donna Fuqua

I find my inspiration in flowers and anything outdoors. I have been seeing this book everywhere! Thanks for the giveaway.


Fun! The grandbaby and the book :) I have been loving my garden for color inspiration right now. I also am addicted to the solids! I can't wait for the new colors (the greens! the neutrals!).


I get a lot of inspiration from some of the great photos that many bloggers share. That cerise really IS beautiful. My favorite is the Kona Tangerine! Thanks, Cherri, and congratulations on the new grandchild! I've got a new one, too!

Carol in E TN

I find inspiration everywhere and I love looking at quilting blogs! Can't wait to see all the new colors. Thank you for the giveaway!

Victoria Gibbons

I have always been drawn to green. So I know the new Kona greens will soon be on my shelf.


The book looks great of course and love the new Kona colors! thanks!


I Love Color too! Thanks for the giveaway!


Congratulations on the new grandbaby! The book looks very interesting. I'll need to add one to my collection.


This weekend I visited my daughter's college campus and boy they have a wonderful garden full of just magnificently colored flowers and greenery. So I guess I am mostly inspired by the colors I find in nature. The flowers I received for Mother's Day inspired me to get out my dyes and hand dye some laces and pieces of fabric! I also pounded color from the flowers...again nature. Of course one CANNOT help but be inspired by the cacophony of colors used by quilters, artist, sewist and such!!! I love color...see it everywhere! I look forward to seeing the quilt as I do admire how you use colors!!!


I'm like you Cherry. Everything inspires me. Love the new colors. Thanks for the chance to win.


I find inspiration in nature, but I also love to go to the fabric store and see what jumps out at me.

Kim H

Hmmmm, I like both of those colors but it would be a challenge to use them together. I like a challenge, especially a quilting one!
Thanks for the giveaway!!

pam cole

would love to be this lucky person xoxo fingers crossed thanks


Just about everything inspires, especially what I see on people's blogs. I am not a very big fan of purple/lavendars but I do like the wisteria that you are showing - and the cherry. We have a lot of wisteria in our yard and tht color is the perfect match. Please count me in on the drawing for the book.

Kaaren Babb

I'm so excited about the the Kona Kolors....... wow. And I am trying to make something right now that requires the Wisteria, so it couldn't have come at a better time!


Mike Pearson

Maybe this is strange, but I get most of my color inspiration from looking at other fabrics :) If I'm drawn to one particular print, I like to work around that one as a focal point for an entire project. Picking out complementary fabrics is the most fun!

Maria do Carmo Pezzuto

Em tudo e todos os lugares,ontem,no varal de roupas da vizinha,tinha um lindo degrade de azuis e roxos.Obrigada.tiacarminhapezzuto@gmail.com


I'm the same about finding inspiration for color everywhere. Sometimes I just want to look through gardening magazines or quilt books, or walk around the store looking at clothes. Congrats on the grandbaby:) Lovely way to spend your time. Looking forward to reading your story on the quilt pattern.

Amy C

I actually find inspiration on the sidewalks/pavements. I walk A LOT so I am looking at the sidewalks all the time and the designs on the man hole covers, the sewer grills, the elecric board covers - it is all so awesome. I even take pictures of them for quilt designs!! Would LOVE to win!!


Congratulations on the new grandbaby. I recently got a glimpse of this book at Jo-Ann's and loved it. I'm wrestling with conscience on whether to go back and get it now or to wait. All of the projects looked divine.

Diann Cornell

I think nature is the greatest source of color inspiration.


Color, color... EVERYWHERE! But, the colors outside are most inspirational to me. And now, I know about design-seeds.com. Wow! Talk about inspiration! By the way, Cheri, 'Centered' is absolutely stunning!


QUILTS!!! of course :) I get so much inspiration from my fellow quilters - helps me to step out of my comfort zone!


I find color inspiration everywhere too! Mostly in nature, but sometimes you find a building or photo that makes you think "I NEED A QUILT WITH THOSE COLORS!"


I find color inspiration everywhere too! Cerise looks too yummy for words! Thanks for such an amazing giveaway.


Congrats on the new grandbaby Cherri. Nature and abstract artwork inspires my color choices. Thanks for the chance to win!


Whenever I see a color combination I like, I make a note. My favorites are those that include blues or pinks. But I love all sorts of unique color combinations.


Most of my color inspiration comes from nature right around my house. In the summer we spend time kayaking and at the beach. There are always glorious combinations to be seen.
I can't wait to see the new Kona colors.
Enjoy the grandbaby.

Miss Nancy

Color is everywhere for me. I love seeing color in the bright sunlight as well. The book looks super good. Thank you for the giveaway.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day.


I hope I can win a copy of the book or some fabric - both look amazing!


Just love the new Kona colors, and I'd love to win the book.

Sharon B

From magazines and catalogs to nature. Yes, everywhere!

Carla G

I find color inspiration everywhere... Especially in nature & all the flowers that are blooming right now! :) Thanks for a chance to win! :)
