    The other day I was looking at my kitchen floor and I thought , that would make an interesting qult block. So I got out a piece of scrap and made a block. I liked the way it turned out, but where in the world could I use it? :| It could be something like a "yellow brick road" I guess............

    I love that fabric.

    I can relate. When I did bead work I was always inspired by different tapestry and upholstery.

    And I thought I was the only one that looked at floors for inspiration for a quilt. We recently went on a cruise & I just HAD to take pics of the floor in the Atrium. I have a long list of quilts to make, but someday I want to make one like the floor on the Carnival Freedom ship. My DH thought I was crazy & kept saying what if someone sees you taking pics of the floor, what do they have a patent on it,lol! Now if I can just find the pics!!

    I see I'm not alone. Floors, chairs, ppl's shirts. With a camera phone i can take pic's without anyone noticing, then send it to my email.

    My bathroom floor has an interesting design...I often think of adapting it into blocks just to satisfy my curiosity!

    Just keep making it bigger and then you will have a quilt. That fabric is cool.

    I think that there might be many of us!! Ive got one on my phone of the flooring in the hotel lobby we recently stayed at. The world is full of inspiration if we just keep our eyes and minds open and stay aware of our surroundings and carry our cell phones/cameras!!

    My laptop/internet is acting up and almost no web site will load all the way so I can't see the picture but, my sister and I were at a seminar and I was taking a picture of the carpet in the hotel banquet room. She asked if I was taking a picture of the carpet?? I said yes. She said for a quilt? I said yes. :)
