A Fortune and Bench Inspiration

We had Chinese food for dinner the other night and here are my fortunes:

I went to the vet the other day to get our bird some more food and there was a new bench outside.  The back looked like this:

This could make an interesting applique pattern or an interesting quilting pattern, perhaps for sashing (although it would need to be modified so it was a continuous line design).  It could also be interesting in a modern quilt!
