Pictures from a class at Mississippi Quilt Association's annual educational seminar. The class was taught by Billie Thompson, and she called it Antique Mosiac Tile. It is a variaton on piecing a nine-patch block and cutting pieces off, reattaching on another block.
This one was made by Marilyn Rose and uses all polka dot fabrics:
Here are my blocks using fabrics from designers Kaffe Fasset, Phillip Jacobs and one Amy Butler. I found a good print for the border and will show another picture when I'm finished with the top.
Although it takes more prep time, once you start using starched fabric to piece with, there's no going back. It allows the most precise cutting and piecing. I'm definitely a devotee, ever since first reading about this in a Debra Wagner book way back when.
