Mosaics in Cyprus

Several years ago I visited Cyprus, the small island nation in the Mediterranean Sea. There are many, many things to enjoy on this sunny Greek-flavored island. One of my favorite parts was touring the archeological sites in the cliffs. The floors are covered with intricate mosaics that made me want to start quilting immediately.

I haven’t made a Cyprus quilt yet, but the inspiration is there, and someday something will come from it.

My husband told me that I’d be good at making an entire mosaic floor… something about repetitive detail work. Yup, he knows me well. That might have been a good job for me 2,000 years ago if I lived on Cyprus.
