A Case of the Dizzies: A Quilt

Inspiration comes from many places.  In this case, my husband's vertigo was the source.  He would say "I've got the dizzies this morning."  That got me to thinking...
The green represents that sick feeling one gets in their stomach while dizzy.  The wide rickrack trim is Pepto Bismol pink.   The black and white swirls create the illusion of the dizzies, of course!  At one time, my husband could not look at this quilt.  Now it hangs in the den where he spends most of his time!

I'd like to know what inspires you.

My oh my, that is some quilt! Your eyes must have gone whoo whoo when stitching the black&white. Pepto Bismol Pink - that made me smile. Love it. This should be an official colour for when we buy paint.

Happy Pink Saturday from the UK!
