Mosaic my way

As so many others, i made this top after having seen it in VINTAGE QUILTS, the Mc Calls's magazine. I had quite a stash of poison greens, shirtings ,turkey reds and chrome yellow. On the first picture you can see they are not all the same, but that doesn't bother me at all. The turkey red border has a black, rather big print. The blue fabric is the only one i bought for this top.
Just have to find time to hand quilt it!
Yesterday i spend most of the time watching TV, Who didn't anyway???
Thinking also about Rosa Parks, that young black girl in Little Rock going to College ,and the Obama's, just splended! I wish him all the best, and consider him also my President!
45 crumb diamond shaped blocks are ready since a few days, my inspiration was a quilt seen in and older QNM, some pics in a next post.
Happy quilting and greetings from Paris, Will V

beautiful quilt, Will. I admit I avoided watching the news/inauguration for the last few days. Change is coming though - hopefully all good!

Welcome to blogland, Will. I look forward to following your blog. This quilt is lovely! The colours look very brave to me - they are an unexpected combination because I am not familiar with that style of quilt. Beautiful!

What a lovely mosaic quilt you have made- it is on my list to do. I remember seeing one on Lucy's blog and then trying to find the pattern here. I was fortunate to find it in a quilt store that had some back issues of the magazine.
I will look forward to seeing your lovely quilts. You can find me at
Happy quilting,
