::Voting:: Sweet Contrary

Good morning!  It's totally not fair that my "job" this morning was to look through your Sweet Contrary mosaics and choose finalists.  I mean, how fun is that?  (Don't worry, after lunch I'll do some real work.)  I've narrowed it down to 10 finalists, choosing mosaics that felt cohesive and inspiring.  I also made sure to have a good variety of color schemes.  Thanks for the lovely start to my day!

Enjoy perusing these lovely fabric mosaics from Lark Cottons!  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 Thursday, May 2nd.   The two winning mosaics with the most votes will be announced on Friday.

Good Luck Everyone!

  2. This may seem silly, but the choice I made looking at the larger set, changed once I looked at the smaller mosaic. I saw the colours, groupings etc., differently and it made me reevaluate my original choice. . .anyone else?

    1. Yes, it's like stepping back to look at the finished quilt from far away or even just a photo of a quilt on the computer. Perspective can be really helpful!

  14. WOW! These are all so beautiful. I also went back and read the challenge. From there I looked through all of the other mosaics that they had listed. I have no idea how you picked Rachel. One is as amazing as the next. I wish I was half as talented as these ladies. And man would I love to all of them.
