I took pictures of patterns yesterday and this morning when I was out walking. These are all patterns in metal and I thought I'd share:
If you've heard me lecture, you've heard me say that I pay attention to what I see because I often see something interesting. Some of what I see might be good in a quilt. The diagonal lines (above) could be quilting or piecing lines. It looks like the size of the diamonds might be different above and below the squares. The designs in the squares could be applique! The scalloped line at the edge is nice as well.
I loved this manhole cover. Look closely at the way new lines are added to the wedges to the outside of the circle.
This would be fun to piece.
What got my attention first were the circles. Then I read the words. Sanitary sewer... couldn't that be a very clean sew-er? That's us!
