Turtle Quilt

I recently finished this fun quilt for a client's grandson.  She asked for turtles, and I had a hard time finding something I liked.  So, I decided to make my own!

I had these little turtles printed by Spoonflower.  

As for the design, I was inspired by some great quilts I found on flickr, like this one and this one.  It's very simple, so the fabrics really stand out.

As always, I used scraps of fabric from the front to make the back.

So today's question is... 

What inspires your quilt designs?  For me, flickr (this group in particular) is a huge influence and inspiration.  There are so many talented people out there who post pictures of their beautiful quilts!
