I often look at pictures and think "how could I express this in a quilt"?
I see a 19 inch grandmother's fan ruler useful here.

The top of this building---what a fantastic border !

Love simple quilts with just the plainest of a few star blocks.

Oh, my head becomes a tangled mess of ideas when I have quilts on my mind.
How does one decide which idea will work,?
which idea to do first,?
which idea do I have fabric at home to use?
{ which idea will I remember till tomorrow}?
I think today I am going to do what 
my "steady eddie" does,
I am going to invest in a small note book so I can get all these ideas out of my head and onto paper.
Hopefully then I will be able to prioritize what I can honestly accomplish without becoming a slave to my second love , my BERNINA.

If you are me I would have to leave myself a note as to where I left my notebook! Your stairs picture is great!

You have a creative mind...and I'm sure your quilts reflect that wonderful creativity. Who'd ever have thought about the top of that building being a border...but I agree it would look great!
Thanks for the award, Eileen! Believe it or not, I got the same award last week from another blogger!
