I was in awe at how many quilting grids were just a step away: rail fences, checkerboards, 9-patches and blocks surrounded by sashing strips!
Every few blocks, I would encounter an alternate grid layout that required me to pause and study the pattern from different angles in attempt to decipher the repeating pattern. Once I cracked the pattern, I would then try to figure out how it could be recreated and pieced with fabric!
While we oftentimes turn to quilt books, magazines and the internet for quilting inspiration, I encourage you to explore your own neighborhoods for possible quilt layouts and designs! Your next quilt top or design could be right there at your feet!
Of course, some of the grids were much more intricate featuring octagons, circles and other geometric patterns.

Several photographs were reminiscent of modern quilt trends: improvisational slab blocks, chevrons and woven patterns.
Of course, I also spied some quilting filler designs: pebbles, micro pebbles and on point gridwork.
