Have you've gotten ideas for quilts from a strange or unusual source?

Funny you should ask. Just the other day when I was I was sitting on the 'potty' I noticed that my bathroom floor tiles would make a great block pattern. :mrgreen:

Oh my gosh!! Cissy beat me to it! I don't remember where I was, but it was a public restroom, and the designs in the floor tiles were perfect for quilt designs! LOL

I was about to ask you what that pattern was!
Did you make it up or is it a variation of a pattern that already exists?
