Mosaic Story Quilt 2.0

My Mosaic Story Sew Along is officially over this month. You can read about it here. Basically, for the past 7 months, we have been sewing 7 Mosaic Story Blocks a month. You can find the pattern here. I am calling this quilt 2.0 because I made one a number of years ago!

I’ve shared each of my blocks on Instagram. They are fussy cut, paper pieced blocks, with fabrics chosen to tell a story. Here are just a few favorites.

This block is perfect for the season since apple picking is happening now. My favorite part of apple picking is pie making and specifically, eating the leftover pie for breakfast!

It’s a story of a bear who loves honey and acorns, of course.

This one describes a fictional person. This young woman is fresh out of college and full of dreams. She is creative and fearless. She is setting up her new apartment with her terrarium and brings home her first cat from the animal shelter.

I’m calling this one Equity! It’s the first story that came to mind when I saw the chicken on the alpaca’s back. The chicken and alpaca wanted to know what was going on over in the nearby farm but the chicken couldn’t see over the fence.

These blocks are a lot of fun to sew and were the precursor to the Tell Me A Story block from my book, Intentional Piecing.

I quilted on the diagonal, 1/4″ away from the pieced seams. This highlights the fussy cuts without stitching through them, because, you can’t have that!!

I backed my quilt in a Heather Ross tree climbing fabric because it seems to tell a story too.

I really enjoyed revisiting this pattern. Thank you to all who sewed along with me. I look forward to seeing your finished quilts!
