Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

An Old Inspiration

Back in the olden days…maybe the 1990’s…… we didn’t have instant access to all of these wonderful patterns, designs and ideas. And the thought of writing a guild newsletter and having it appear only online was out of the question!!

So, back then I was in charge of our guild’s monthly newsletter which was pasted up, photocopied and mailed each month. I was always looking for fun designs and photos that I could use as fillers or to just jazz the content up a bit.

To that end, I spent a great amount of time combing books, newspapers, and websites looking for these simple designs. I have NO idea where this particular design came from but it has always appealed to me for a quilt pattern…..

When I look at it, I see shades of the Southwest US and also of Italy or another exotic country. Could I possibly want more?

I love the mixture of architecture, birds and sunshine….who knows, maybe I will add it to my growing “to do someday” list!!

Hope you are having a wonderful creative Tuesday!!
