What You Are Making

The Freshly Pieced Flickr group has been up and running for a few months now, and I love seeing what you all have been doing with my patterns and tutorials! If my graphic design career has taught me anything, it's that creativity doesn't exist in a vacuum. So the innovative twists that people have put on my designs very often inspire me right back.

Here are just a few of the beautiful things that have popped up in the Flickr group recently. If you've made something inspired by a project you saw here on my blog, please join the group and add your photos!

Fun to see all these--kind of like being a Quilting Den Mother, right? I'm glad you took some time to highlight what caught your eye--I'll have to head over there to see what other treasures have been posted.
