    Last week I happened to look down at my bank's floor and noticed that the floor displayed a quilt block. As a matter of fact, there were three possible blocks. I want to take a picture of the floor and graph out the patterns and use them in a quilt. Has anyone noticed floor patterns before and have made a quilt out of them??? : ;-) ;-) ;-)

    I've just started looking at tiles on the floor as I walk this week.

    Not only floor, but when I go into some restaurant restrooms, I notice the tile on the wall would make a nice quilt... LOL

    I was a fill in pianist at a local church and looked up and found very intresting windows. I haven't tried to copy in a quilt, yet.

    Just last evening, as we were visiting a friend in the hospital, I commented to my husband that the tile pattern in the floor would make a great quilt.

    We were at DisneyWorld a few years ago and the women's restroom had a beautiful tile pattern. I wanted to take some pictures but people were looking at me funny and I was afraid that they'd call security if I whipped out my camera in the bathroom. Wish I would have because it would have been a great quilt.
