    I did this the other day! I was sitting in the bathroom at Wal-Mart and looking at the tile on the wall imagining 4 patches and 9 patch designs in that white tile!

    I didn't get strange looks tho! Noone else was there!!

    Mplsgirl there is another thread about how we see quilts in floors. I was referring to that.

    How funny we all are.

    :lol: I did the same thing at my doctor's office. She came in and asked me why I was staring at the floor so intently? I told her I am a quilter, always looking for designs, she thought that was pretty cool and said she'd never look at another tiled floor the same way she did before! Too funny.

    I went to Kohl's the other day to get myself at least one updated summery top (I needed something semi-dressy to wear to a wedding reception.) Anyway, I tried on about 7 different ones in different styles and colors. What did I see in the mirror -- quilt fabric....

    I did manage to buy a short sleeved sweater -- in black.... :lol: :lol:

    Am I too far gone to be saved?? :roll:

    I went even a little further in a restaurant. I was in thier bathroom looking at the floor tile thinking what a neat quilt pattern. so went back to our table, got the paper place mat took it back to bathroom and traced the floor tile onto place mat. I still have that to this day. When I think I am going over the edge, I drag it out and say you were once worse than you are now. There is hope there is hope. :?:

    LOL on top of LOL...you both made me laugh.
    I can honestly tell you that i have never...gone anywhere that I didn't see quilt patterns all around me, since becoming a quilter.
    I have even stopped women and asked them the name of the color blouse or dress they were wearing! :oops: :mrgreen:

    I can certainly relate. Our Lowe's also has the most wonderful tile in their bathroom (and it is always sparkling clean, I might add). I have also seen quilts----do you think this is some kind of an illness???? It seems to be contagious, too!

    It was offset squares. A large one then a small one half the size then another large one. I stared at it thinking how difficult it would be to peice with all of those right angles that don't match.

    Yep I have done this too. It was in mexico the tile work down there is mesmerizing! It is everywhere ... on buildings, floors, walls, steps ect., ect. I enjoyed it so much though, who cares if it seems crazy to someone else? I guess I am forever hooked on designing quilts. Hey that's why I am here too ... Gee I do have a problem. LoL!
