Amy’s Inspiration: Patterns in nature
dandelionfluff copy


I am obsessed with patterns in nature…particularly during my summer sabbatical in Northern Michigan when I am able to observe and photograph constantly… Unlike Kansas summers, Michigan summers allow for living outside most days… I see pattern everywhere- in water, loons, on a petoskey stone, and I am compelled to record it.

Will I use them in a fabric or quilt design? Maybe… All I know is that Mother Nature is the most imaginative designer I’ve seen, and it’s always good to look to her first.

Check out my gallery of Michigan images below. Where do you enjoy finding pattern in nature?
