Quilting Patterns at your Feet

Do you ever notice the quilting patterns that are quite literally at your feet? I see four different sized hexagons in this metal cover. And look at that wonderful gear shape in the center!
Now look at an even older version of this cover. The design is more open and airier and the smallest component now looks more teardrop shaped than hexagon. Wouldn't it be fun to play with these designs using fabric?


  1. Manhole covers aren't that interesting here, but I'll be on the look-out for the newer styles. I didn't realize that the telephone company had special covers.

  2. Seems like I'm always looking down and often finding a nice quilt design *s*
