What is the origin of Mosaic?
Quilt Mosaic Block pattern? Mosaic is a word of Greek origin, mousaikón, and means “work of the muses”. Mosaics are found mainly in Italy, Egypt, Macedonia – now occupied by the territories of Greece, Yugoslavia and Bulgaria – China, and other countries. The oldest record of a mosaic is from 3,500 B.C., in the city of Ur, in the Mesopotamian region.
It is the Banner of Ur, a wooden box with panels on all four sides and a mosaic made of reddish sandstone, lapis lazuli, and other precious materials. Would it have any Quilt Mosaic Block fabric in that medium? We don’t know….
The mosaic depicts everyday scenes from Mesopotamian society. It is worth remembering that in the West, probably the Mayans and Aztecs knew the Mosaic technique before that, and for this reason there are controversies about its emergence.

The Greeks used to create floors with pieces of white or colored marble, laid with a compact and resistant mass. Would this be applied to fabrics as well in those days? Well if you delve into the history for sure yes! I guess from knowing the history of mosaic, Elizabeth the creator of this pattern then got the idea.
