Full of memories

I finished Mosaic 1 today. I love finishing a quilt but I also have a moment of sadness because my time playing with those particular fabrics and pattern has come to an end. I also love quilts that are related to a holiday , each time I look at the particular quilt I am reminded of a city, country or in this instant a person and his work, Gaudi. I have made 3 "holiday" quilts, Stars Over South America, 2010; Antarctica 2013; and now Mosaic 1 2018. All 3 quilts have been sewn on planes and trains, while relaxing in hotels and while having a coffee watching the world go by. Only another patchworker would understand the calming nature of hand-piecing while sitting in a chaotic city square in a foreign land. It is also a great conversation starter.
