The Grave of Buffalo Bill

It's amazing where you can find inspiration for your quilting designs!

Back in January I headed out to Denver to record more video content for Fons & Porter.  We are offering an online Longarm Quilting Fundamentals class that contains all the information I wish I had when I got my first longarm machine out of the box and knew nothing.  This class is over 13 hours long.  It is always fun to be in a studio with a large crew, four cameras, and cue cards.  It is also a little nerve wracking too.

After the shoot was over we did a little sight seeing.  One of the fun things we found was Buffalo Bill’s grave!  Take a look at the fencing around the grave site.  Isn’t that iron work great?  I find most of my vacation photos look like this.  Everyone else is taking wide shots and I come back with closeup photos of door knobs and tile work. 🙂 Can’t you see this as a feather or a border design?

The fence around Buffalo Bill's grave has a really interesting look that would work great as a border or feather design.

Here is how I would interpret and use this photo as inspiration for a quilting design.  What do you think?
