Mini Mosaics Magic

It's quite an amazing day when there is a room full of 23 quilters that love my new technique for making mini mosaics. I'm always a little skeptical about the reception for a technique that uses tweezers and 3/8" squares of fabric.

But this was a group of my peeps! My fellow guild members. Even one who made a comment that I was crazy, a few months ago when I wrote about my Mini Mosaics on my blog. I knew they would be honest with me. So I was over the moon when the comments ranged from "it's addicting" to "this was the best workshop I've ever taken" to " this would be so much fun to do with my grandkids".

Here are some photos:

I was working on a psychedelic Bailey before the workshop. Thanks to the energy of my fellow quilters, I couldn't wait to go home and finish it. It looks just like her except it's in technicolor.

Show & Tell next month at our guild meeting is going to be so exciting. I think there will be lots of finished projects. Woo Hoo!

And even more good news is that everyone will be able to learn about it in a future issue of Quilting Arts, coming out this summer. I'll keep you posted. But of course I'm always available to teach you in person at your quilt guild.



  1. Looks like it was a lot of fun time! Great technique!

  2. The ladies sure did enjoy themselves!

  3. That does look fun and I can imagine it would be the kind of project that you get into and forget time as you work on it. Love the new Bailey piece, those colors are so fun.


  4. I'm very excited that it will be in Quilting Arts, I've been dying to learn how to do it, but Arizona is pretty far from where you teach. I was really hopeful that you'd teach this on the quilted adventures. Please let us know which month it will be in, it looks so fun.

  5. Cheryl, my husband wants to do it! And, you know,...he can do anything!!! Steph

  6. This looks like so much fun. Wish you were closer so I could learn this technique. Love following your adventures.

  7. The mini mosaic was one of the most fun workshops I've ever taken; I consider myself art challenged-I know its in there somewhere...this was delightful, relaxing and easy to do. I can't wait to do this with my 7 year old granddaughter. It was a little like putting a puzzle together. The tips and tricks were so helpful!! And you can talk with your friend while working on your mosaic.

  8. Really, really cute stuff! Sure does pay to have a good eye for color and the ability to draw an outline that looks like something real (without resorting to coloring book pages!). I'm green with envy!


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
