    This is a photo mosaic quilt from my good friend, Marion. She passed away last May, 16.
    Last August, 14 she should have been 54. I gave this quilt to her husband Kees and their kids.

    Hi Ranger,

    The pieces are squared 0.4 inch. I don't have a closeup pic yet. If I be there I'll take a closeup photo.

    WOW! It looks as though the pieces are extra small, an inch or so. I really like that you captured the sepia color so well. I've not seen one quite like this before. Beautiful!

    Wow, that's lovely! Quilting is an art, and mosaics is an art of it's own, I can't imagine how you did that. It's just wonderful. I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't imagine losing my best friend.
