Summer in Europe Quilt - Roman Glass in Trier

This is a small piece, only about 8cm square.

It's going to need pressing and possibly some fabric underneath to make it lie flat but I'll worry about that when I put the quilt together at the end.

This little one was based on some lovely pieces of glass which I saw in the Landesmuseum in Trier, a German city on the banks of the Moselle. I'm pretty sure the glass is Roman but I may have that wrong. Here are the three pieces of glass I photographed. I haven't tried to copy them exactly, just gone for the general 'flavour' of them.

The museum had some fantastic things in it and I could have chosen all kinds of things to base a textile design on. I might look at using some of the mosaics later.
