Summer Travel

Summer is a great time to rejuvenate, to be outdoors and to look for inspiration among the bright colors and patterns that surround us.

That’s exactly what I did this summer with an eagerly anticipated trip to France.

It can be very motivational to visit a new place.  One appreciates things that are often overlooked if they are part of your every day environment.

I am always looking for inspiration and ideas for new fabric designs and there was no shortage of these in France.

This tiny shop was tucked into a passageway in the medieval center of Annecy.  Just imagine if your favorite fabric store was in a stone fortress built hundreds of years ago!

Not everyone likes fun patterns and colors. Not too many quilters in this shop:

Shown below, is the picturesque town of Honfleur. 

Closer inspection reveals a color combination in the making.

And check out these café chairs for a delightful burst of color.

I will leave you with a few of my travel photos. I hope you had an inspirational summer too.
