a big idea: art for inspiration

It's no secret that I love doing applique.  Here's some inspiration for applique designs from the art world.  These images are all from Laura Nugent's website.

This would be a simple design to applique...all straight lines!  Use two shades of green fabric to give the illusion of hills.

A beautiful blue bird on a gold patterned background.  I love the bold colors.

These trees are so pretty.  I think my fabric version would be fabric circles appliqued with hand embroidered leaf designs.

I think I will have to raid my fabric stash and give some of these a try in fabric form.

Laura Nugent has the most amazing work. I especially like what she does with the bird, so many variations. Thanks so much for sharing her work!
