I wanted to share some quilt patterns I found while I was traveling with my family over the holidays.
This is the chapel floor in the church of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice. It’s an interesting geometric floor that reminded me of a LeMoyne star quilt block. The colors are dark but very striking.
This is one of the mosaic floors in the Vatican museum in Rome. Look at all the quilt blocks! (Sorry for all the feet.) There’s a couple of Square in a Square blocks, or Ohio Stars – which ever way you look at it. In the right hand corner ( I couldn’t get everything in) there are some Flying Geese blocks and there are some 4-Patch blocks in the middle.
Everyone else was looking up but I just happened to look down. It made me smile to see these quilts blocks under all that beautiful art. Of course, I think this is art too.
You just never know where you’ll find some quilts!
