Mosaic Monday - Quilt Top Finished

Welcome to Mosaic Monday, hosted by Mary at Little Red House.   Please take a moment to visit Mary's blog to see mosaics that fellow bloggers have also created. 


This week I purchased 4- 1/2 yard pieces of fabric at Oklahoma Quiltworks.  The fabric designer is Jane Sassaman.  I love her bright bold patterns and just had to start a stash of her fabric line.  This will be used in a "future" quilting project. 

   
This week I finished piecing my Springtime in Oklahoma quilt top made using Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  I will be using my Bernina to machine quilt it in sections using the Linda Milligan/Nancy Smith Divide and Conquer method. I saw them demonstrate this method on the HGTV show Simply Quilts several years ago.  I recorded the segment and have it on DVD.  I have used this method on 1 other quilt and it worked very well.  Wish me luck!

I want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Let us all give thanks for the many blessings we have received this year.

I used to quilt - Maybe in 2010?

P.S. I just noticed your blog title. Here is a photo of mine I often call Empty nest - and it is blossoming also. I have more nest photos, also at that site.

What a pretty quilt, you're very talented.
I've never tried this craft but do have a hand-stitched quilt I bought in PEI one summer and love it.
