A Quilter’s Mosaic Monday

It is time again for another Mosaic Monday.  Hop right over to “The Little Red House”  and check out all the others that LOVE to put together collages/mosaics each Monday. It is a real challenge, and looking at the all the different mosaics is quite a treat for the soul.

A few weeks ago I went into town to the Virginia Horse Center where our local farmers’ market appears every Saturday.  As always, I had my camera on the front seat.  After picking up my veggies, flowers, and bread, I started to pull out of the lot when I suddenly realized the county fair was in progress and in front of me was the sign saying the quilting exhibition was inside that particular building.  Immediately, I turned around, parked my car again, grabbed my camera, and headed over to see the quilts.  Of course, I had the wrong lens, but I made the best of it.  Many of the quilts were cropped against my wishes, but they still show the talent and love that went into the making of them.  The “Quilt Diva” tickled me to death so I gave it the place of honor. If you want to see any of the quilts up closer, just click on my Flickr button in the sidebar and you will be able to enjoy more of the detailing in the quilts. The larger pictures are really neat! Enjoy!

  5. Oh, I love the quilt diva!! I bet that was fun to make...I'll have to go to your flickr to see the rest of them.
