Idea for Sailboat Quilt

Where do ideas come from?

Last week I got the idea to make a boat quilt. It would be 12 blocks with different boats in a grid. I sat down and sketched.


Then things got hectic before leaving for Quilt Market in Houston. I didn’t think any more about boats until the second night I was in Houston where a quilt popped into my head fully formed with all the colors picked and everything. How does this even happen? I just say thank you to whichever power is sending stuff into my head like that and try to draw down what I saw before it begins to fade.
