Sunday Quilt Inspiration: L I N E S

22 landscape photographs that use power lines to great effects

I've found that I've been drawn to lines lately. I've played with some ideas of using lines in blocks. It's a work in progress, of course, but I'm hoping this quilt inspiration will help me to visualize what's in my head just a little better.

Since I've started this latest interest/infatuation, I've noticed lines in a huge variety of places: farm buildings, power line structures and towers, houses and buildings, fireplaces, kitchens and so on. 
What lines have you noticed lately?
