Quilt ideas

This is a tile floor from the abbey on Mont Saint Michel, in France. It looks like a streak of lightning setting for triangles. The way the color is worn away, it looks like “scrappy fabric” choices. It would make a nice quilt.

This is what it looks like from another place on the same floor, where the glaze hasn’t been worn away. I also took a photo of a wooden floor that looked quilty to me.

I can’t resist adding a photo of Mont Saint Michel, which has been on my bucket list for years. It is only an island at high tide. I’m so glad I finally got to go there. It reminds me of my ceramic sculptures which frequently had small houses or castles on them.

    Wow! You must have been thinking of Mont Saint Michel while you were designing your sugar containers. Must be fabulous to see in person!
    Those floor photos are really quilt-pattern-like. Interesting how the glaze and color was worn away and made it look so pretty. I wonder how old that floor is?
    And your airbnb place must be pretty snazzy to have such a cool wooden floor! Lucky you to get to be seeing all this beautiful part of the earth.

      The AirB&B was an old building which had been subdivided into smaller apartments. Although the floor was beautiful, I was worried I’d get a splinter in my foot from it.
      I do feel lucky to be here!
