Katja Marek's Millefiore Quilt Along!

A good friend of mine told me about the Millefiore quilt along in December and asked me if I was doing it.  Nooooooo, said I because of all my UFO's and the fact that I have the 52 Hexagon book and am busy on a project from the book.  But then I saw the Rosette and I was a goner!  So I signed up and have been working on the first Rosette.  Here is the center and round one done.
I am basically sticking to the original colors of Katja's rosette and pulling fabrics from my stash.
 This is one of the fussy cut hexagons for round two.
 Laid out with the two different hexagons for round two.

Getting a little further along.  I have made more of the hexagons and need to sew them to the main rosette.  I am having so much fun with this millefiore sew along.  It's going to be a beauty when done.


  1. You're off to a fantastic start!!! I love how the hearts fit in the round #1 diamonds

  2. This is soooo beautiful! OMG I have to stay tuned to see how this will develop. Love your choices of fabric.

  3. Very beautiful, great color and fabric choices.

  4. Wow, wow, wow! This is so pretty and fresh! Love the little hearts - I thought they were appliqued but it is the print. Your block is going to be fabulous!

  5. Fabulous! Love the colours you've used.
    My own rosette is stuck on round 3, the fabric selection process is textile masochism!!

  6. Chantal, it's just beautiful. I said nooooo to this one,too. But then I saw a friend's center, and I ordered the book and the paper pieces. My papers are here, but the book hasn't arrived. The papers by themselves look pretty intimidating, but the blocks I'm seeing are just gorgeous. Did you join the Facebook group?
