Chinese Patterns

Everywhere we went I saw potential patterns for future quilts. Don't you love these circles, set in squares with stars in the lattice!

Patterns, patterns everywhere...textures on walkways, painted buildings in the Forbidden Palace and Temple of Heaven, beautiful tile work...

I'm finally back to blog life, after three weeks in China and another 4 weeks trying to catch up and recover from a nasty bout of bronchitis, asthma and allergies all kicked off during our last days in China, in Shanghai where the air pollution was incredibly thick!

Now it's time to sift through 1300 pictures, capture the designs in new quilts and enjoy this wonderful summer!
