{inspiration: manhattan}

This quilt by Bernadette Mayr, from The Art Quilt Collection, just stopped me in my tracks yesterday. What is it about little houses that makes me just fall in love?

One day, I'm going to make a quilt based on this. A redder version, perhaps, and not so much in tribute to Manhattan, or any big city, but to represent the way I want our home to be -- filled with stories, people and windows onto different worlds, with a space always free for family and friends to stay.

Redder. Definitely redder.
