The work continues on The New Hexagon Millefiori Quilt Along and my fingers are sore but I just can't help myself! This is what my Rosette #1 looked like the last time I shared it with you.
For the next round I'll need twelve hexagons from two different hexagons patterns. I decided to do the first six and then I'll make my fabric selection for the second six . I decided to repeat the fabric I used in the centre and to it I added a pale print with pale peach overtones and the same batik I used in Round 1. I just can't get the colours in the batik to photograph accurately. The green is actually more olive and is not as bright as it appears.
These are the six hexagons stitched together but not stitched to the centre. I'll select my fabric for the next six hexagons, make them and the sew everything together into one big happy rosette! You'll notice that I fussy cut the coral diamonds so that there is a dark motif in the centre. I think I'll fussy cut this same fabric but centre a light motif in each.
Just a little bit of hexagon sewing to go on Lozagons and then it will be finished aside from the border. I'll try to take a picture when the wind dies down!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
