In building construction, topping out, or topping off, is a ceremony held when the last beam is placed at the top of a building. The term may also refer to the overall completion of the building's structure. A topping out ceremony is usually held to commemorate the event. Here on the Twelve by Twelve blog we are celebrating by inviting our readers to leave a comment before 5pm on 15 October to go into a draw for some of our special notecards. You might also like to vote in our poll to nominate your favourite collaborative art quilt mosaic so far (see the sidebar).
Now all of our shelter-themed quilts have been unveiled, I have compiled the collaborative art quilt mosaic:
Community mosaic, you will recall how Kristin and Gerrie's quilt both featured a similar cross motif. Then in the Illumination mosaic, Gerrie's pears were echoed by Terri's lightbulb. This time, the shape of Diane's cave doorway and Karen's Lost City could almost be the positive/negative of one another (how spooky is that!) while Gerrie and Nikki are channelling orange. What do you see?
