When I was growing up, I wanted to be an architect.  I was told in the 1950s that girls didn't do that!  I really didn't have the ambition to swim against the tide, so I chose another life journey with never a moment of regret!   

 Fortunately over the years, we have been able to do some traveling where my focus has always been the architecture --- from castles and cathedrals to cottages. 
I have observed some great accomplishments of talented architects.  I love the juxtaposition of modern buildings with traditional, older structures.

I'm always inspired and wish I could transfer my love of architecture more effectively to my quiltmaking achieving that energy of juxtaposition.

 In this recent small quilt, I have combined the modern architectural triangle with a traditional quilt setting.  To read more about my triangle inspiration check out my other blog,  (Click Here.)

I fussy-cut the fabrics enclosed by the triangles to remind me of
the treasures found inside some great buildings I have visited.
