Aren't these just gorgeous??
Whenever the camera comes upon one of these pieced beauties, I'm focused on it instead of the action!
For example, this ice skating shot.
This couple gave a great performance, but look at that background! Love the different 'fabrics' and how the diamonds break up at the edge. So pretty!
Here's a big display in orange
And this beautiful purple board at the hockey rink. Go USA!
Just design with no color was enough to distract me, like the 'kiss and cry' area for the skaters
Isn't that a pretty background? Oh, and congratulations to this gentleman that won the mens skate--most fitting.
After seeing so many awesome images of the patchwork, I'm feeling inspired to make my own. But then again, it's also fun to make quilts in my head! Or I could just order a T-shirt
but not sure how it would get here from Russia!
What about you, feel inspired?
