Mosaic Monday - Faith, Hope Love

I have been working on an art quilt series by McKenna Ryan called Faith, Hope, Love
There are 9 squares in total and they are quilted as individual art pieces 
and mounted on 12 x 12 inch square canvas.
Since my kitchen was going through a renovation last week, I spent most
of my time downstairs either playing in photoshop or quilting.
My goal last week was to complete the pieces, which I am happy to report I did.


The mosaic illustrates how each canvas mounted square will be hang on the wall.
Each block represents, to me, how I tackle this journey called Life.

1st Row: First Block-AWAITING, Second Block- FAITH, Third Block-PEACE
2nd Row: First Block-HOPE, Second Block-PROMISE, Third Block-MAJESTY
3rd Row: First Block-HARMONY, Second Block-LOVE, Third Block-TENDERNESS

I am happy to have another UFO off my 'to do list'.

I am sharing this with Mosaic Monday hosted by Little Red House,
stop by and visit all the beautiful mosaic.

Enjoy your week!!!
ps. I will post the kitchen makeover when it is complete.
