The Making of a Mosaic Photo Quilt –
Celebrating the Life of my Great-Aunt Gladys and her 100th Brithday

Hello everybody,
I am creating a new Mosaic Photo Quilt for my great-aunt Gladys she and the family prepares to celebrate her 100th birthday. I will start working on the quilt tonight (March 31, 2012) and it should be ready by May 4th in time to be presented to her during the celebration of her birthday. This is a great opportunity to show the steps that goes into creating one of my photo quilts and I hope that you follow along as I go through the process. When the quilt is done I will create a visual guide on how to create my style of photo quilts.
