At the bowling alley and think this is a nice meander. Lol

That's funny. On a quilt yes but on a carpet it's ugly.

Carpet like that has a very interesting look when there is cosmic bowling.

I often find myself daydreaming of quilting patterns looking at bathroom floor tiles like in restaurants and airports!

We dream in quilt patterns! I see quilt patterns all the time, a lot of inspiration in architecture, but I guess design elements are the same, no matter what you are building! This is what fascinates me about quilting!

I get ideas for FMQ patterns many places -- even toilet paper or a Kleenex box. There are designs everywhere! Just think outside the box.

Nice to know someone else noticed those designs on the TP. Not sure I wanted to mention them, glad you did.

I see quilts in rugs and pavers (like sidewalk/driveways). I think it's a part of my brain that I haven't tapped into yet...ha ha.

When I see the trees in the fall I think that would make a pretty abstract looking quilt. Just small squares of color.

In my last journey to Potugal (http://chantosnachaira.blogspot.com.es/2016/01/ovar-azulejos.html) I kept taking pics of the colorful ceramic tiles houses are covered with, as they looked so quilty-like:

Some also look like embroidery or cross-stitch inspired:

My niece lived in Paris for a couple of years and took these great photos of the wall, floor and ceiling tiles. I always thought of quilt patterns when I saw them.

I bought a packet of straws in the HEB grocery that the colors were green, blue and purple. You've guessed it, immediately thought of what a pretty quilt they would make.

I see quilts in everything....either colors or patterns...it really is a sickness, for which I glad there is no cure.

I found a really cool "quilt pattern" mowed into the grass at out local professional baseball field.
