Here is the second of the pair of vases that I've done. Each vase is a different pattern but they both sit on the same lace covered table.
You can see the other vase here:

This mosaic vase is created with bits of many different blue and white floral fabrics giving it the look of blue & white and vintage flow blue china. The neck and lip of the vase are covered with small 1/2" squares of blue with gold metallic print fabrics.

The background is created with various cream and beige fabrics set against a white background for a warm and clean look. The table area is created by long triangles of pale cream and white fabrics held down with spirals of stitching giving it the look of a crocheted tablecloth.

The border is set off by using black background with the blue fabric pieces forming the mosaic, which is then neatly edged by a row of 1/2" deep blue squares.

The entire piece measures aprox. 18X24" and has a substantial feel to it and hangs nicely against a wall. There is a sleeve sewn to the back for a rod to slip into for easy hanging-just a couple nails will do. Although I use raw-edge applique when creating the piece itself, the edges are neatly bound and finished.

Interesting story: If you've ever seen Kaffe Fassett's work or any of his books, you know how he absolutely loves an abundance of pattern and color. He's been a huge inspiration in my artistic life. In one of his early books called Glorious Interiors, at the beginning of the chapter on mosaics, is a picture that includes a plate made of broken blue and white china with black grouting.
This piece stayed with me for years until blue and white fabrics were suddenly in vogue and I could find them everywhere...I started making wall quilts from these designs back, oh, years ago (late 90's?) and I've done quite a few of them.
Fast forward some years after that and guess who was coming to town and doing a lecture! I stood in line to get my book autographed and showed him my page of quilt photos that he'd inspired and he asked how I was able to find so much blue and white china? I told him they were fabric quilts. He was totally amazed and showed it to his assistant and said how amazing it was.
And that's my story. But I do love the blue and white against the black. Someday I plan on doing real china mosaics but for now all my mosaics are fabric.
