    Wonky mosiac

    This was a time consuming but fun way to use up scraps!

    Really nice. Did you just use solid back in between?

    Wow! All the black outlining really looks wonderful and must have taking a bunch of time, but it really sets off the colors and the design! Great quilt.

    I really like it, and love the colors that came into it! I've pondered making a 'stained glass/mosaic' type quilt, but dread the tiny leadwork/sashing between pieces. Nice work!

    That looks very effective with the black in between each fabric.

    Thank you, everyone! Yes, in between the colored mosiac tiles, I used black fabric. I also used the same black fabric for sashing. I saw a tutorial on this, and she made one with white instead of the black. I thought the black was more visually effective. It did take a whole lot of time to assemble, but I found it very satisfying. Just don't want to make one of those too often, ha ha!

    It reminds me of looking through the window of a library after an earthquake! Very cool.

    The lead-work is not that hard. I cut strips of black 3/4 inch wide, sew that on one side and then sew the next piece onto the black with the quarter inch leg of the presser foot running right up against the last seam. That comes out almost perfect every time. I just need to make all the seams straight, no crooked lines.
    I've made borders around several blocks in large quilts this way. I put a base line under my pyramid border like that. Looks great.

    Your quilt is fantastic. This type of quilt has been on my bucket list for a few years. Need to reduce that trash/stash pile of little pieces.

    Oh my! That turned out great. I have so many scraps and tend to get discouraged trying to use them, blocks seem to take so long to put together. I really like your blocks- I think I need to revisit my scrap tote and try again. The Black certainly makes all the difference. Love it!

    Unique quilt - I love that stained glass look, and the uniqueness of each block! Thanks for sharing your work.
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!
