Looking for ideas

I See Quilts!!!

Even when I am not quilting, many things make me think about quilting.  I'll see a tiled floor or wall and see a quilt pattern.  I'll see a child's drawing and imagine how it would look in a quilt.  I have to admit I am a doodler and have been known to doodle quilting designs and patterns during a staff meeting here and there.

I was working with Tangrams ( a set of plastic shapes you use to duplicate a shape or design shown on a card ) with my class at school and found it very easy to move the shapes and develop quilt patterns!  The shape cards have abstract shapes and things such as animals, boats, tents, houses and more.  All of the shapes can easily be cut out of fabric and pieced into a quilt!!!
