    Quilt Patterns

    I'm seeing quilt patterns everywhere I look. I saw a lady today with a very nice jacket with swirls on it. I immediately thought that the swirls would make a very nice pattern for free motion quilting.

    Isn't that just great where you can see quilt patterns! I have seen some wall paper on a wall that would look great as a quilt.

    I know just what you mean. I saw a quilt pattern in the hub caps on the car parked next to us at McD's the other day. So I started checking the other cars nearby. Only the one next to us inspired me.

    I never noticed "quilt patterns" before until I became a member on this board. Now, that's all I see, even when watching TV. haha The patterns just jump out at me.

    I think that we all have a "one tracked mind". Yep I see patterns everywhere I look.

    My dentists' office has some beautiful Art Deco wallpaper that I would love to try making a pattern from.

    sometimes my family has to look out for me as I walk around. My son had a soccer tournament in Las Vegas. My husband had to lead me by the arm as I snapped picture after picture of the carpet, the walls, the ceiling, the......! I kinda feel like I"m a bit obsessive....hehehehehehehe!

    I was with my brother in intensive care with our father. He had just come from work and I asked him or his tie when he didn't want it. My father and brother thought it was very amusing and it did break the tension.

    I think we all do that. I see quilt designs and potential quilt fabrics everywhere. Not long ago, I made DH take a picture of a carving in a restaurant. I know it will make a great quilt. Fortunately, he is used to this by now.
