Art C Girlz had a Mosaic project night, led by Kathi.   I was home sick, so I didn't get to do it with everyone else.   So, I tried it on my own tonight.   OK, I'm a bit too "Type A" because I grew increasingly frustrated with trying to get my shapes to exactly line up - they wouldn't and didn't seem to be all the same size - supposedly 1" square.   Anyway - my attempts are shown below.

 This is my orignal fabric - a batik.

This is the new arrangement of all the fabric squares.   I left black showing between all the tiles for 2 reasons - to even out the squares and to make it look like stained glass.    I don't know if this is the intent of the project, but it is what I came up with.


  1. Elaine,
    I like it! It glows! ;-)
    I was there with Kathi and the others, I think you captured it! (never posted before so I hope it worked...)

  2. OOOOOOH!!!!!!!!
    LOVE it!!!
    Any ideas what you'll be dong with it now??

  3. Well, right now I'm quilting in the "leading" or the black parts. I see beads. I know you wouldn't find beads on stained glass, but I see them as added sparkle. Beyond that - probably just leave it as it is......unless you'd like to suggest something else. Thanks Mary & Martha.

  4. YES! It is wonderful! I love the glow in the center. It WILL make a great sample for my class end of April.....!!!
