Carpet Inpirations

These are hotel carpets. Such vibrant colors. I like to deconstruct these carpets into quilt patterns and designs.

The blue one is easy to break down into a quilt. Mariners compass and snails-tails make the blocks, set on point with gold sashing and corner stones, four-patch sets make the border to create a checker design. Cute wave pattern in border makes it! Could easily substitute the compass block for a friendship star.
