Has anyone else noticed the quilt-like design of the Olympics artwork? It looks like diamonds patchwork. There are purples at the snowboarding venue & blues at the ice skating venue. Really pretty!

Oh, I agree Eileen, the colors are very beautiful.  And indeed, it looks like diamond patchwork.  A quilter must have designed them.    Ginny

Thanks Kris. I had tried googling everything related to the Olympics. When I tried Olympic banners they popped up.

Thanks, Kris, for answering Judy's question.  Like so many, I'm having problems getting on, posting, etc.

Carol, thanks for the article.

Hope everyone is well & quilting,

Debbie, I might have misread my email from Hancock's of Paducah - I thought they had a kit, too, but I don't see it. Sorry!
