quilting inspiration on the go #3 - the Gold Coast

Mum, Dad, myself and the Little Guy have just spent a relaxing weekend at the Gold Coast.  Little Guy has previously been quite scared of the beach but he's now got a lot more confidence around the surf and is happy to spend time on the beach paddling and building sand castles.

As we walked around Surfers Paradise we came across some beautiful details in the buildings as well as the buildings themselves.

Some shells also would look great as a quilt block, I'm thinking Dresden Plate style.
