Last week Fred installed the memorial mosaic she designed and built for her Mom’s grave site. Jonathan and I helped install it at the family plot in a secluded and gorgeous corner of Madison County. Fred designed the day lilies to be cut in a quilt pattern, to honor her Mom’s love of quilting. The mosaic is inlaid into pieces of Pennsylvania bluestone. I think it is a fitting and beautiful tribute to Fred’s Mom.
Here are a few images from the fabrication process. I think these show the progression nicely. You can also get a better sense of the richness of the colors. It was a bright afternoon when we finished the installation and the stone looked bleached out in the full sunlight.
