In May I was in Toronto, Canada on holiday. It is a beautiful city and it was good to escape a Melbourne winter for some Ontario spring weather. While in the city, I was fortunate to find that the 14th “Doors Open” was on the weekend I was there. At 160 different locations, private city buildings were open to the public for viewing. It was so well organised with helpful volunteer staff in each location to give quality information about the structures.
Naturally, while walking through some of the buildings, I kept looking out for some designs or ideas I could use in my patchwork. I was delighted when I saw this tiled floor
Then in another building I saw this foyer floor
From another angle this pattern is more obvious
And around every corner of every room there was another ‘quilt’ just waiting to be made with fabric!
And finally – the border for the quilt!!
I am told that on 27 and 28 July, Melbourne has public buildings open for viewing http://www.openhousemelbourne.org/ . So for those of our blog readers who live in Melbourne or will be visiting this month, it may be worth investigating.
