Thank you guys!!

I also forgot to mention that this is 95% made with supplies I already had on hand. The only thing I had to buy was the black fabric for the base on the front which I got at my local thrift store for 50 cents! For the "batting" I used some leftover fleece fabric which wasn't even big enough so I had to sew two strips together. Talk about getting thrifty with it  Grin

I'm so glad I read this comment about using fleece as batting, because I'm attempting to make a Halloween banner, and have tons of fleece I need to use up.

And how you used mostly materials you already had.
It's perfect.

This is fantastic and looks SO well done! Hard to believe you're not a professional quilter. I was wondering, did you use any type of batting under the individual "tiles" in the fabric mosaic? I love how they look a little 3D!

Thank you! There is no individual pieces of batting (like with TM patches). It's all just a single piece (in my case two since I sewed two strips together) of batting or fleece which is what I used sandwiched between the top fabric and the backing fabric.
