During my recent trip to the East Coast, I stayed in a hotel while attending a work meeting. I saw the carpet and thought it would make a great quilt, recolored, of course.
I like the simple design.
There is interest even though the design includes just squares, using different sized squares and subtle changes in “color.”**
I can see this design with a solid background and a variety of bright colored something fabrics for the squares. Prints or solids would both work. I was thinking about it, designing this in my head and then I saw….
almost the exact same design in Modern Quilts, the Winter 2015 issue. I couldn’t believe it.
Back to the drawing board.
**Nota bene: color in this instance is generous as I consider color to be something I can actually see. 😉
