Finally finished my Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along Quilt!

I am so excited!!! I just completed my Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along quilt...and just in the nick of time, literally!  The deadline was midnight tonight.  This is the first quilt along, of any kind I have ever been a part of and it's been so much fun!  The Quilt Along is based on an AMAZING book by Lindsay Conner  titled: "Modern Bee: 13 Quilts To Make With Friends".  Being completely new to quilting, this is the book that really inspired me to jump in and give my dream of learning to quilt a try!  Although I know it is far from perfect,  I'm very happy with my first attempt!:)

Mosaic Tile Quilt Along...Blocks completed!

I have finally completed the blocks for my Mosaic Tiles Quilt Along.  They have actually been done for a few days, but since my last post we've had three more snow storms and a mild case of the flu around here.  Oh well, more snow this weekend and next week, too... I think my kids are spending more days at home this winter than at school and actually that's just fine with me!;)  So, these are my blocks(with one to spare, that I will use on my quilt back), I've decided to use this brown swirly fabric for my sashing.  I'm almost done with the quilt top, now and started piecing my back, I will post those pictures in the next few days! Have a wonderful weekend!
