Portuguese Pavement & Today's News

This is a picture of Portuguese Pavement that my nephew took while in Lisbon, Portugal. He said these types of sidewalks are common there, as well as in Brazil. I of course thought of quilts. When I googled it I found many designs that would make good quilts! Notice how the stones aren't all the same size? I am still thinking of Wanda's quilt (see previous post), with the Crooked Cobblestones type blocks. lol hint, hint...Wanda.


I finished working on some patterns for my new Sampler Club #9 class. I decided to name the quilt Seeing Double.I had a reason for the name. Not sure if it fits, but I was seeing double by the time I was finished as I was making it in my spare time through the holidays. I am still working on the patterns, but am getting there. I still need to bind the baby quilt too. It's already Sunday night. Can I please order another Sunday for tomorrow?

I love this quilt and the colors. Isn't it amazing how we seen quilts in just about anything?

Hi Jean! That quilt is so pretty!

The cobblestones are cool. They have cobblestones in Germany too, but they don't do patterns like that. They just do "fans" repeating. That's a cool pattern.

Yes, when we get used to really looking, we can find quilt patterns everywhere!

The quilt is just lovely. Those cobblestones have given me an idea for a whole cloth. I have added to my idea book

Love the sampler quilt, Jean! Wish I could get going on a project. I seem to be stuck in a rut here. :oP
