Houston Hotel Carpet

Houston Hotel Carpet
I spotted this carpet at the Hilton while attending the International Quilt Festival in Houston. I seem to remember reading that the quilt festival is Houston's largest convention, and I couldn't help wondering whether they didn't have quilters in mind when they chose this carpet. My friend and I were sitting on the carpet talking about how to turn it into a quilt when we saw Alex Anderson walk by. Maybe it's a sign that we need to make that quilt...

On October 5, 2006 a copyright infringement lawsuit was settled in favor of well-known quilter Paula Nadelstern whose kaleidoscopic quilt designs from her book, Kaleidoscopes & Quilts, were used for this carpeting without permission.
