On August 11 I issued a challenge to find design inspiration for quilting from a glass and ceramic tile mosaic which decorates the outside wall of Hoss’s restaurant in York, PA. Click here to read the blog post and ensuing comments. The ideas were amazing!
I especially liked Ronda’s correlation of a meteor shower with a section of the mosaic. Making a quilt to capture the memory of the astrological phenomenon is a great idea!
Maridee explained about the scrappy squares she’d use to “copy” a section of the mosaic. I also could SO make a quilt like that.
Pamela shared a couple of ideas; the sophisticated suggestion of rotating a block would make a wonky circular design, I think.
I’ll email these Quiltmakers 100 Blocks magazine winners asking for their USPS addresses. Special thanks to all who participated in the contest!
If your favorite quilt shop or newsstand does not carry this special magazine, you can order a print or digital copy from the online Quilt and Sew Shop. I kid you not, the magazine is packed with beautiful quilts. Order now and you’ll have time to make a couple for holiday gifts or decorating.
