Millefiori #3

And another update on my La Passacaglia Millefiori quilt. It is very slow work, particularly when it comes to the big rosettes. Not that I mind it being slow work: I like slow. And now I have finished by second large rosette & attached it to the main part, & I’m very pleased with it.

Here’s my rosette.


As usual, it developed as I went along. At first I thought about a green-red-purple colour scheme, but ended up putting some blue in as well for good measure. Given that my quilt is thus developing organically (ahem, meaning I don’t plan ahead), I’m quite agreeably surprised that it all goes together quite well.


I can’t wait to see where the next rosette will take me…

  1. That is beautiful! I’m sure at some point I’ll end up making one of these. I can definitely see that choosing colors would be one of my biggest challenges.

      Thank you for your kind words! It’s the kind of quilt where you’d do well to plan ahead. In my case, I work from rosette to rosette & hope for the best. It’s worked so far, thankfully. There’s a group on Facebook, which is devoted to this quilt alone & you could get lots of inspiration for your project there.
