After our family trip up north, Mr. Riley and I headed to Boston for three days. He conferenced and I toured. With a quilter's eye I found many interesting architectural details to take pictures of. It sort of brings to mind the chicken and the egg question. Did the motifs appear in quilts first, or other places? Are they just generally pleasing to the eye and that's why they are so popular?
Anyway, if I had much time to spend I could do a whole series of quilts inspired by Boston. Unfortunately I'll probably just have to look at the pictures. Which, by the way, aren't the greatest. We decided to leave the 'good' camera home and just use cell pictures.
