More Greenwich, in the mean time

So while I wait to get the right light to take photos of the new baby, here are some shots I took last week at North Greenwich. The buildings there gave me some great ideas for quilts but I need to bone up on some drafting skills before I undertake a anything, in the mean time (sorry the puns just keep coming) I can ogle good design.

It kind of reminds me of a fractal. I just love the play of shapes. I can see a chain, stars, diamonds, hexagons, so many shapes.
Here are the other buildings, they remind me of several modern quilts I have seen. Great lines, repetition & shapes.

This metal sculpture in the background reminds me of a game called "Kerplunk" that we played as kids. You put marbles in the top & pulled out the sticks, first one to drop a marble lost.
Try to see past the car park.
Actually now I look at it again, it looks like a swarm of bees or a flock of birds.

This is something I would love to do but I as I have a bad fear of heights I know it would only be if I was blindfolded, drugged & dragged on board. Kinda defeats the purpose really huh?
I promise shots of the new Singer tomorrow. May have to have a naming competition as I am a bit stumped.

Loving what I do.

  1. Wow, what cool buildings! What are they?

  2. Hi Helen, I have no idea what they are except for there is a Costa Coffee in the base of the fancy pieced one. I was more interested in the patterns outside rather than what they housed LOL.
    I will have to pay attention if I am ever back there :)

Sorry folks but too many spam comments lately so the word verification is going on for a little while. Once I am no longer "BIG" in Russia I will take it off.
