Hello Everyone,

This past weekend was very inspiring.  So much so that I began and completed a new top.  Have you ever had an idea and had to pounce on it immediately?  Well, that is what I did.  And I am so psyched about it, I can't tell you!  I love it.  

Karen Eckmeier came to our classroom studio to teach three classes this past weekend.  The classes were full so I did not participate.  But I did soak in a ton!  She was the complete inspiration for this!  Thank you, Karen!

After class I went home and immediately began working on this little mosaic!  My head was swimming with ideas.

I grabbed a bag of scraps from a previous project and began cutting up the little squares and then laid them onto my foundation fabric.  I am loving the way it looks already.

Adding a second color for variety.  I am working with batiks as batiks have such a great variation in color that they really give a great look for a mosaic.

Oooooo... now I am really enjoying this.  My heart is singing at the moment and I just can't stop.  Kind of like eating potato chips...

Adding a third color, now this is getting interesting.

Yup, this is what I am going for.... Do you ever feel the same way as I am feeling when you are working on a project and you can't stop until you see the next part?

The fourth color is bringing it all together!!

TaDa!!! The mosaic is done, well sort of.... now I have to quilt it.  That won't happen right away as I have another pending project that has to get completed as I have a deadline.  So this is going to wait.  But I just couldn't stop until I created this!

And for those who are wondering, they are 1/2" squares.  Yup!  I am just a whee bit crazy.  But I love the dark grout lines showing through don't you?

Until Next Time...
