Inspiration

A lot of the quilts I make and quilts I like have repeating forms.  I don’t know why, but I find repetition soothing.

I find tile patterns interesting because much the same thing happens so I try to snap pictures of them when I see one I like. These are some that I think I’ll use to make a quilt some day.

The one here reminds me a lot of a French Braid quilt I’ve seen on the wall of a quilt store.

I’ve noticed that older buildings have some of the most interesting tile patterns whereas newer ones tend to go with a more conservative approach.  Either that or there’s the Italianate villa mosaic border kind of thing that goes on a lot.
