Dec ’16 OMG Finish with Mystery Extras

I’m late joining the December 2016 OMG Finish Linky party, but I actually finished my block and the mystery extras I promised to share about in my December ’16 OMG post within the first week of December. Not everyone knows that prior to being bitten by the quilting bug two years ago, my main creative outlet was making mosaics from glass and tile. I shared about the different kinds of mosaics I’ve made in my Quilting in Glass post. The mystery extras I made for my Bee Hive swarm members and also for two other quilting/blogging friends who have been incredibly supportive of me (Sarah@Sarah Goer Quilts and Yvonne@Quilting Jetgirl) were simple ornaments replicating the Ohio Star block made from nipped pieces of mirror glass glued on top of 2″ wood squares then grouted with black sanded grout with the sides and back stained with wood stain. I have to tell you that photographing mosaic pieces makes taking pics of my quilts a super easy task (and yet I still complain about quilt photography and dream of sending my quilts to Kitty@Night Quilter to have her take gorgeous photographs of my quilts in beautiful nature scenes). Below is a pic of the 13 ornaments I made earlier this month:

And here is a pic of the last block I sewed this year for The Bee Hive:

I wrote a post earlier this month with pics and links to tutorials of all the blocks I made this year for Stash Bee and The Bee Hive for anyone interested–Quilting Bees 2016.

So this is my last post for 2016. Wishing everyone a happy 2017.
