Virginia is for Lovers mosaic
Glass work is suffering because of the heat but that's good news for the wall. Here's the latest block.
"Virginia Is For Lovers" is probably the most recognized tourism slogan ever. It was coined in 1969 to represent that Virginia is for lovers of.......beaches, mountains, history, cities, sports.....
I wanted to represent Virginia on the wall since Chris and I are both Virginians and we still call Virginia home. We love Virginia and can't imagine living anywhere else.
The red marble at the top represents Chris' hometown of McLean, The one at the bottom is my hometown of Bassett and the one in the middle is for Montpelier, where we live now. I even included the Eastern Shore. This block would have taken half the time if we lived in Colorado or Wyoming.

It might have taken less time for Colorado or Wyoming, but it would not have been as stunning. I am so in awe of your talents.

I've been out of town for a few days so it's nice to come back and see what all you've done. Love the VA block! Looks very realistic. If you were from a squarish state, it wouldn't be nearly as interesting!

I agree with Carole. It is a delight to see what you are going to add next.

I laughed at your Wyoming or Colorado comment. Just be glad your not in California...you'd have to lay it on its back!

Wow! Can't find words to describe the quilt. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.
