archiT36 - Lines and Octagons

Lines and Octagons #archiTEXTure #patchwork #textileart #inspiration

This is inspirational photo #36 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

Again we find inspiration in something very banal - the pavement of a very ordinary parking lot. Octagons are always a favourite at Quilt around the World and when combined with surprisingly complex lines and a variety of texture, they become a feast for the eye...

This is inspirational photo #34 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

In the picture you can see the combination of old and new - the control tower of the former Munich airport and now a national landmark and the modern architecture surrounding the tower.

Combining old and new, reusing and making do has been practised by quilters for centuries.

archiT30 - Bothy in the Scottish Highlands

#archiTEXTure #patchwork #quilting #textileart #inspiration

This is inspirational photo #30 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This picture shows a bothy in the Scottish Highlands with lots of dark grey clouds threatening with rain. A bothy is rather primitive building to shelter people trecking through the wilderness. Most bothies date back decades or even centuries and are mostly simple stone buildings.
