Back in August, I went to a quilt show in Manchester, NH. For inspiration, I'd like to share photographs of some of the interesting quilts I saw....

DK Quilt Guild: A place for quilters to gather, share ideas, projects, and to make the world a better place, one quilt at a time. Join us and share your thoughts, projects, questions, and tips. Quilters here are at many different levels of skill. Beginners and non-quilters are welcome, too!

Since the show was in NH, it wasn't surprising to have a section with the theme of a walk in the woods.

And an additional very northern New England scene:

Another section of the show was devoted to quilts with patterns inspired by stone tile floors.

I loved this one ~ the detail was amazing..... not normally parts of the color spectrum I am drawn to, but this works!

Some very modern takes ~ I'm finding myself drawn to patterns like these more and more:

These have a very limited (and fairly non-dramatic) palette, but they work:

Hope these got your hands itching with ideas ;-)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
