Weeks 32 and 33

Somehow, I've messed up my flower posting. I posted one flower twice and found a few flowers that were never posted. This is all happened during our move to the new house and week and half of vacation. I think I'm finally on track again!

This photo was taken among the PETUNIA's on campus.

As a quilter, I draw inspiration from all around me. I keep a notebook of ideas, color schemes and patterns as the come to mind. I seem to especially be inspired by floors. As in carpet and tiles. I'm not sure why, maybe it's the often simple patterns? Anyway, while I was using the ladies room at the student union the other day, I fell in love with this awesome floor.

Those hexagons are so small! This section of the student union was built in 1931 so I'm guessing that's how old the tiles are? (I don't know enough about preservation to confirm this.) In any case, seeing them certainly brings the "They don't make 'em like they used to" thought up.
