My Creative Space: Modern Quilt Bee inspirations

How do you come up with inspiration for a quilt?  I ask because I've joined up for round two of Cat's Modern Sampler Bee.

I went with mustard because I love it - see

but also its in fashion right now.  I've seen around in modern quilt fabric collections for a few seasons - so I thought this would be easy.

Well I was wrong sorry everybody.

I feel committed to the scheme now, so I didn't want to change horses for this round - here are some of the blocks.  I love that a little dash of pink saves this from being too blah.
from top, left to right: Juliet, Leonie, Cat, Lisa, Me, Me, Me, Juliet

Don't you love my commitment?  Wearing burnt orange tights to stand in for the bottom block, which is on the way.  

Despite my husband mentioning that he absolutely loathes my blocks this will be draped over the sofa when its finished.  He might just change his mind once I've finished (he usually does).

Oh - have you entered my giveaway yet?  It closes later today, so best get on to it!
