patterns patterns everywhere...

aj and i just got back from a wonderful little trip to sweet little helen, georgia. my parents are (finally!!!) freeing themselves from the soul-sucking miami and moving to northern georgia. helen is an alpine (read: looks like germany as featured in "it's a small world" at the magic kingdom, but with more candy stores) town in northern georgia, and was the site of many of our family vacations "back in the day". on our last full day down there, we went a-hikin' at anna ruby falls (i use "hiking" very loosely because it makes it sound more woodsy) and having just been discussing quilting (really), we walked through these beautiful shadow patterns, which we both decided should be the basis for the next quilt mom makes us. the moral of the story is: inspiration is everywhere; and you should make efforts to hike more.
