Rebecca who blogs at Bryan House Quilts recently participated in a mosaic contest held over at Rachel's Stitched in Color blog. The contest is a lot of fun (as it requires you to peruse fabric!) and is sponsored by The Intrepid Thread.
I thought I'd take a break from the housework and spend a few minutes putting together a mosaic.
Rachel explains everything, but you basically choose twelve different fabrics to form a mosaic that expresses the theme of 'Folksy Fall'. My first mosaic consisted of browns, greens, reds and blues. With a whimsical print that probably shouldn't be in there, but I love it!
My second mosaic is based upon this folksy fabric:
|Rustique by Crazy Old Ladies for Michael Miller. Yes Dear in Navy.|
In Australia it is currently spring time, but I have no trouble at all in thinking of all things autumn. Spring and autumn are my favourite seasons, probably because of the milder weather.

So if you have a few spare minutes, why not create your own mosaic? Two participants will win their bundle of fabric!
