What is this?

I am quilting this school themed quilt that will be given to the a local school next month when we hold my classes there. It was part of the deal for using they facility. The person who made the top, left Alaska years ago, & donated this top to our Comfort Quilts at the ALCQ.  I was quilting on it today, & realized I have no idea what this section of the quilt is supposed to represent, other than a red tree. The blue & purple checked block below, & the purple, yellow & green squares below that are part of the "playground" area on the quilt, but what are they?

I should be able to finish the quilting on this Saturday. Yay!

We are getting hit with another winter storm. Tons of snow falling in the Anchorage bowl, & still coming down. We had about 10 to 12 fresh inches this morning before I left for my Calendar Girls. I just barely made it back up the hill, & we have about 16 inches more & still falling now. If they don't plow our road tonight, I won't be getting to work tomorrow. I suppose I could finish the quilt then though! There is a bright side to every problem, right?!
Jan was working on this cute quilt that will be donated.
Jackie had fun checking out my new iPad, with our host Jean looking over her shoulder.

We played with the "photo booth" APP, & did so kaleidoscope images. They look quite quilty!


The one below is the same image as the last photo. I took it at Moose's Tooth  last weekend.

The red "tree" looks more like a stop sign. The yellow, green, & purple design looks like hopscotch to me. I have no guesses for the other one.

I agree with the first comment - I thought stop sign and hopscotch....no clue on the purple patch though...

Stop sign, hop scotch and a four-square (a red rubber ball game played by four players on the play ground)!

Ali Honey said...

Yes I agree - hopscotch and hand ball or 4 square.

Hello Deb. the small blocks at the bottom looks like they represent "Hopscotch". Remember when we play hopscotch a LONG time ago. The other one you thought was a tree looks like a "Stop Sign" to moi??? Not sure about the purple patch. I am sure you quilting will make it look wonderful. Here in Michigan we got our First real snow fall. About 4 inches. VBG It is about 2 1/2 months behind schedule. I never seen soooooooooooo much snow in Alaska. Hugs Judy

The 4-Square patch accurately depicts the elementary playground game I played many moons ago called "4-Square". The dark diagonal patch was the starters serving area. I agree also about the hopscotch and Stop sign. Red Tree... Deb you make me chuckle. :) What a nice school quilt and I'm sure your quilting will do it justice.
