    OH! We will definitely be over more during this summer. Mom loves to camp and they also like to stay close to home. They have a motor home but, won't motor very far :lol: so we plan at least one trip for camping. And will definitely give you a holler! :wink:

    I use those, too! Good tip. :-)

    Of course Kathy would keep her quilt blocks in chicken boxes. She keeps her cute little chickens in pottery!

    Hey Susan I had a similar experience only in a restruant bathroom. I fell in love with the mosic tile on the floor so I took a paper towel, laid it on the floor and with a pencil scratched out a rubbing from it. My hubby thought I was nuts. But we all know when inspiration hits us you just gotta act on it the best way you know how.

    I have used pizza boxes for quite a while now. Also, a really good item is an Avon box that the representatives get their orders in the mail. They will hold a good sized project. I happened by a house where the Avon lady was throwing many of them away. I got all that my car would hold.

    Did you ever use the pattern in a quilt? You know that might make an interesting challenge! To make a block based on a pattern inspired by an eye catching design encountered while out and about :D

    No not yet. But it's on my to do list. It was kinda hex shaped with triangles and diamonds. Each shape had a darker thin line around it, almost like stained glass. I thought I'd only make one big block and maybe frame it. Haven't decided yet what colors to use.

    Before you get into hexagons maybe you should check out that subject in the forum. Some of our member quilters are apparently being driven somewhat bonkers over hexagons. :lol: :roll: :idea:

    I did a baby blanket once with grandmas flower garden (has hexes). It started out hard to match up cuz I was sewing by machine. Half way thru I decided to sew it by hand instead. It worked alot better cuz you have more control over your stitches. I'm glad it was a small quilt or I never would have finished it. That's one reason why I'm only going to make one big block for my wall. I found my colors, 3 shades of blue, 2 shades of rose, 1 shade of gold and 1 black for the sashing.
