It’s Finished!

Mosaic Quilt

My mosaic paper pieced quilt is finished!  I finished it a couple of nights ago but then we had another major snow and sleet storm.  Right now we have at least a foot and a half of snow along the side of our barn where I usually take my pictures.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to get a picture because I couldn’t manage the ladder, etc. with that depth of snow.  Thankfully, my husband is working at home today and I offered him a trade.  If he would take pictures for me while I was hosting the second grade Valentine’s Day party at the school, I’d come home and bake Snickerdoodles for him.  He had to use snowshoes but he did it!  I love the way he mimicked all my normal shots too.  It makes me smile.

I have said enough about this quilt as I was sewing it so I don’t have much more to say.  I did add a border, as I mentioned in my last post and I love it.  It brings the quilt to about 54″ square.


I used one of the prints from Catnap for the binding and Circles and Text in Blue from Adventures for the backing.  I struggled with the quilting and decided to just do a diagonal grid which I think was taking the easy way out, the safe route.  Ann, one of my readers, suggested a chevron design and even sketched it out for me.  I debated it for quite awhile but I was nervous about adding another pattern when I already had a primary and secondary design here, struggling to maintain order in a really scrappy, colorful quilt.  Please keep making suggestions though Ann!  Maybe next time I will be more brave.
