The orange building and the rest of the buildings in your photos is all part of the new City Center. :)

Can’t wait to see the tutorial. It looks like a great design for larger prints.

I love seeing the world through your quilting goggles!

I see quilts everywhere too! LOVE that building. Great contrast with the buildings around it, but I also love the red “pieces” and the rows of small square windows!

I’m not sure I’d like to work in this building – not enough windows, but it will make a wonderful quilt!

I’m really looking forward to the Project Modern challenges!

Yes, I too see quilts everywhere in buildings, Mother Nature, color palettes, it’s a never ending delight.
I love your pictures from your trip to Las Vegas.

I see quilts everywhere too. I keep a photo file on my computer of “Things That Should be Quilts”. Knitting in a casino? That makes me smile.

You know, I’m the exact same way about seeing quilts. I recently moved to Europe, and the architecture and colors here really are quilts in the making! Exposed beam houses that are bright yellow, red-brown, and dark green shutters…the exposed beams look just like sashing!

I also see quilts everywhere! I’m an architect, so I can relate to your inspiration. I love your designs, very graphic!

So glad you like them both Lynne! Enjoy!

This is great, I am really inspired. I’d like to start a group for Orange County quilters. Would it be possible for you to send me the contact information for the person I need to contact to get started? I tried clicking on the contact us button on their home page but I don’t have a mail client so I couldn’t get the address. Thanks so much if you get a chance to reply back by email.

I just received the fabric and potholder you made me… beautiful! Thank you very much! I can’t wait to see your next quilts!
