The featured quilt block today is one I have named Mosaic -- for the simple reason that I do not know its real name. (An aside here -- if you happen to know the real name of this quilt block, please let me know). The block could not be simpler to make but the fun starts when you have made many blocks and then start playing around with placement.

Since quilts are an artform, and the quilts you will see today displayed at shows feature some magnificant artwork, I chose to use Art as my topic for today's quotes.
Quotes about Art
- "Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
- "Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time."
~ Thomas Merton
- "The big artist keeps an eye on nature and steals her tools."
~ Thomas Eakins
- "Art is not to be taught in Academies. It is what one looks at, not what one listens to, that makes the artist. The real schools should be the streets."
