Manhole-covers

I went to a quilt-show once....ages ago it seems. And there were a lot of beautiful quilts there, I am sure. But for some reason, I only remember one quilt, this was before digital cameras, so I don't have an awful lot af pictures!

The quilt was called manhole-cover, and apparently, the quilter had taken pictures of these for years, and had finally decided to use one of the designs in a quilt.

I thought it was beautiful, and a fun idea.... I took these photos today, wouldn't these designs make some fun quilts?

What a great idea. I especially like the last picture. Wouldn't that make a fun quilt with the little fish on it? Thanks again for your "tours" I loved your previous post with the tower bookstore.
