CPP Response #121: Aquarium

I know I have said this before, but sometimes I really do wonder what has possessed me when I pick the words for the prompt. Some prove to be more challenging for me than others. Know when I select the word, I select it for the promise of what the response can be and not what I have in my mind. I often do not have a response in my mind when create the prompt.

This one was part of the giant series of drawings I did over a few evenings. I really wanted to catch up with the ones I missed/neglected. I can always go back and redo some as I did with Beckon, so the ones that aren’t as detailed may get a redo someday.

I don’t know why I am making excuses, but I don’t feel that this response is up to my usual standards. I guess I have to be ok with it.

Look at the original prompt and create your own response. We would love to have you play along.

Entryway tile
Entryway tile

I am fortunate to live in a place where I can walk down the street and see a quilt pattern. Recently I saw this tile entryway and it reminded me of the Basketweave Baby pattern I mentioned some time ago.

This tile pattern is also similar to one I saw in Petaluma. I was lame and didn’t take a photo of the corner of that older entryway, but there may have been a reason. I do like to take photos of the corners, so if I decide to make such a pattern into a quilt pattern, I know what to do with the corner – or at least I know what someone else did.

There would be a lot of partial seaming if I made this as a quilt.

Do you see how the piece looks like there are curves. If you click on the photo to make it larger, you will see that there are no curves. That illusion is so interesting to me.
