TaDa part 2 - suggested names for my mosaic quilt

OK, I'm going to list some of the suggestions that I have received from some  my friends. I'm not going to list all because some are just on going to make the cut.

 From Joyce Vanilla Tile, Very Vanilla, Beautiful in Beige,Beige Beauty, Venetian Tile Vanilla

Me: Fudge Swirl, Chocolate Chip,   and then a combo of me and Jeannette Caramel Swirl

 Linda  Chocolatte

I had a longer list but I was reminded that the color of the quilt has to be incorporated in to the quilt. So a lot of suggestions had to be cut. I had completely forgotten  that rule...

What am I working on

Fiberart North East is a group I belong to. Every year we have a gallery show at the Mahopac Library. Mahopac NY. Anyway this year it will be in September from the 1st to the 28th. Reception on the 17th from 2-4. Well, back to what I'm working on . It's a Monochromatic Mosaic. I just finish fusing all the tiny pieces of fabric to a white background. And I wanted to share it with you. The design I used is from a photo that I took a few years ago while in a church in Lucca, Italy. I could have just done an applique technique but after seeing a mosaic quilt by a fellow quilt artist from Italy Laura DiCera I just had to try my hand at it. Since the theme of this show is Monochromatic I choose beige and brown family. Now I have to quilt this and so I'm praying that the tiny little tiles of fabric don't pop off....My piece will measure 9" x 20" and it will be mounted on a white canvas measuring 12" x 24" . All the quilts in the show will be the same size either hanging horizontally or vertically...  So here is a photo of before I quilt it.
