Inspiration from a home improvement store?

I know lots of quilters have found COLOR inspiration in Home Depot’s paint section, but have you ever found QUILT inspiration there?

These are Behr’s new paint chips.

I see some awesome templates!  Don’t they just scream “applique”?

How about a whimsical tulip with a leaf?

Or maybe a dogwood…

This one looks kind of like a gardenia or hibiscus.

I don’t know what kind of flower this would be.  Poinsettia?

One thing’s for sure – I’ll definitely be using this petal template in a quilt soon!
