There are places and people that inspire creativity in the most unlikely of locales. A facade of a building may look ordinary at first, but on second glance, there are textures, shapes, and colors that may be the spark for fresh inspiration. The world around us is our muse, and with a camera phone at hand, we can find that inspiration just by looking at something through a lens other than our eyes. Let award-winning quilt artist Esterita Austin take you step-by-step through her process of inspiration, and you’ll start seeing the world -and your quilts- in a whole new way. Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
