I look all over for inspiration for my own quilting. I found this amazing piece when visiting the nearby town of Winona, Minnesota. I love the way that the borders and center are different, yet all are related to one another. Notice the graceful curves and organic shapes.
Who is this amazing quiltmaker??
Perhaps this photo will give you a clue:
Yes, it is the embossed tin ceiling of the Winona Art Center. Tin ceilings were popular in buildings beginning in 1880s as an economical way to decorate a room’s ‘fifth’ wall. Many historic buildings still exist with their tin intact. Don’t forget to look up for design inspiration!!
