    Does anyone else see themselves thinking quilt at unusual places. I was sitting in the front row at a conference yesterday. I kept looking at the repeat in the design in the carpet. It was real ugly but might make a great one block wonder!! I want to start my obw an it was really on my mind I guess.

    Definitely! Anytime I'm in meetings at work and they get "boring", I pull out a clean sheet of paper and start designing quilt tops. I've come up with some great designs during those sessions.

    I agree. I am always thinking of new things, or looking at things to give ideas for how to quilt the top. That is part of the "addiction" :thumbup:

    When I became disabled I took up photography..I soon started looking at everything with composition, light ect in mind, when photography took me to painting I looked at everything wit color and proportion, now I am quilting I too am seeing blocks in everything from brick walls to cracks sidewalks! LOL

    Those inspirations are everywhere. My kids just laugh at me when I say "that pattern would be great in a quilt"
