Mennonite Mosaic

After I fixed a terrible mistake with the seam allowance in three rows, I could start sewing them together.


What beautiful colours. It's a pleasure to work with them! They make me so happy.


Blocks A are done. Up to 8 blocks B, they will form the pattern :-) I really can't wait to see it grow.

I am so happy to see the work you have already done on this cheerful quilt. I was a month in Florida and using a very slow dial-up internet service which made it difficult to see pictures....I can't wait to see how this pattern grows either.

I am trying to buy more fabric of the two color type you use so much for old looking quilts. Do you recommend any source? But probably you buy from European places - do you? Any suggestions would be appreciated! How is your son's quilt coming along. I am like you (only more so) with a quilt for each of my daughters but haven't done one for my son yet....

Very nice job Lucy! So lovely!

Beth said...

That is a lovely quilt Lucy. I have a lot of those same colors, Civil War repros mine are, and I love that quilt, but I don't think I'd have the patience to match up that many points and seams! Great job!
