Fisher Inspiration

I took a fabulous tour today with Lorna and Corey to the Fisher Building in Detroit's New Center.  Led by a Wayne State history graduate student, Pure Detroit offers free tours of the Fisher Building, the Guardian Building, the Ren Cen, and downtown.

I must admit the marble floors made me itch to pull out a pencil and sketchpad for designing quilt tops!

Can you just imagine pulling out your scrappy grays and antique whites to make these beauties into a quilt?

This one especially.  LOVE the stars!

The building was designed by famed architect, Albert Kahn and a very talented design team.  They must've had some amazing quilts in their childhoods!

Have you ever seen a floor that inspired you to create?
