When Stratoz and I went to the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza XX, this quilt was one of the first to catch my eye.  When I looked up Linda Dixon, I discovered a post on her blog where she describes being inspired by a mosaic dome at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC.

I have often been energized by quilt designs in my mosaics, so it was very cool to discover a quilter inspired by a mosaic.

    Totally awesome inspiration from both the mosaic and the quilt. The quilt is outstanding! And that show is the sister show of the Denver National Quilt Festival I try to get juried into every year. I’m so green with envy you can go!!!
