::Voting:: Emerald Mosaics

It's time!  I was so very impressed by all the gorgeous Emerald fabric mosaics you've created from among the enticing offerings at Fat Quarter Shop!  By last night's deadline there were well over 100 submissions for our contest.  I've narrowed it down to 10 finalists, choosing mosaics that felt cohesive and inspiring.  There's lots of different looks, people!

Oh, and since "emerald" can be hard to pin down and Kona Emerald is pretty different from the Kona Fern I pointed out, I've also allowed for different interpretations of the color "emerald."  Trying to be fair!

Enjoy perusing these lovely mosaics!  I've presented them first at large size to help you find your very most favorite one, with the name of the artist under each mosaic.  Voting is below with smaller images for reference.  Vote now through midnight (eastern U.S. time) on Friday the 18th.   The two winning mosaics with the most votes will be announced on Saturday.

Good Luck Everyone!

    1. It´s so interesting. It´s well known that people see color differently. Some of the -very inspiring- mosaics don´t even have the color that I would call emerald in them. Personally I like teal better than emerald anyhow. But since the challenge said "emerald" I chose two with the color that I see as emerald. ;-)

  17. I love the color green and wear it a lot, but not a big fan of emerald green (unless it's the stone variety). I did vote for the one I thought the best. Don't think I'll be doing anything in emerald unless someone asks for it specially.

  18. I voed on knotty gnome, simple tiny prints, beautiful.
