Construction Zone Continues

jill here.....We're still under construction, working hard to get quilts photographed.  I enjoyed  a quick visit to Washington DC where I love to look at architecture.   Of course, there are many famous and stately government buildings but even the "regular" neighborhoods are interesting. Century old row houses are transitioned into modern!  This one caught my eye.  In Iowa we have barn quilts; this is the first modern transparency I've seen in the city.  WOW!   Must be an artist living there!

If you zoom in, you will see to the right side of the center windows,
the brick work is exposed in its original color.
Such a subtle touch connecting the old with the  fresh paint.

Check out the brick along the corners and the top.
A fantastic detail that all the ''''row" has in common.

So just like a parent who is short on time, I will bribe you with a request.  Send me a specific site that inspires "modern" (one chance).  If you share a photo on our facebook site, you'll receive two chances for these 8 fat quarters of Robin Zingone's for Robert Kaufmann "Stockholm".  The drawing will be totally random...doesn't matter if you've won before (like I would remember)!

Have a great day, enjoy the beauty of the season.  Check back next Tuesday for another video!


  1. This site is something I stumbled across a few weeks ago while looking for something else...

    lots of modern architecture pics that inspire modern quilts in my mind, anyway!
