I kept thinking and taking photos of what could inspire quilts that are beyond what I think I could make. I will post some of my photos later, but Bushwick, in Brooklyn, there are street artists working, http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/05/nyregion/a-son-of-bushwick-turns-the-neighborhood-into-a-gallery-for-street-art.html. The streets are on the cusp of change from a broken down industrial area that was abandoned by residents and businesses in the 70s- helped along by the 1977 blackout when it was looted and burned. The street artists have made it a cool, hip place for those who always seek the cutting edge. Among all the street art, graffiti, and brokeness, there was one mural that had a bee with a needle that seemed to be sewing a quilt turtle. It stopped me in my tracks.
So, while my brain is cooling off and I get some rest, enjoy the art.
