I made these blocks using Elizabeth Hartman’s Mod Mosaic Floor Pillow tutorial, and I have to say that it was just so much fun!
I had some white fabric strips leftover from a quilt squares swap, so I trimmed them down to 1-inch strips. I also dug out some new and old fabric scraps that I was dying to use. Even the fabric bits that looked drab and boring in my scrap pile seemed to take on a new life when bordered with that crisp, white “caulking.”
Each of these blocks is about 10×10 inches, and it’s not necessary to be exactly square. Elizabeth suggests making 9 blocks and turning into the front of the floor pillow, but I think I’ll save enough blocks to make a quilt of some size (crib or lap blanket maybe) and bind them together with a much wider sashing.
I also got a surprise in the mail the other day, from Australia! The hand-carved stamps I won in the Queensland Flood Appeal auctions arrived, and I’m so excited to use them on some handmade notecards. Aren’t they entertaining?!
