Choose Your Own Block-Along, 2/9/15

I have had the hardest time keeping up with the weekly linky lately.

Things are going VERY slowly with the new hexagon millefiori quilt-along with Katja Marek. I'm glue-basting all the pieces. Actually I have only ever done the hexagon shape, and not even very much of that. I admire all the beautiful rosettes I have seen posted.

I have the center of the first rosette done, part of the January rosette. There are quite a few rounds on this one, and I have only the first round glue-basted. I think Carla will probably finish the rosette for February (!) before I even get this round done for January!

And I'm working with some fun solids from Timeless Treasures, along with black and white stripes.
What have you been up to?

  3. I am so tempted to buy the book and the starter package for the rosettes. Am I nuts to begin another project? I love your Timeless Treasures project! Great secondary pattern with the high contrast!

  5. You have far more patience than I to even get that far!

  6. Between you, Elizabeth and Carla I'm awfully tempted to try the Millefiore quilt along but need to hold back. I have a mountain of other things to do.

  7. Love the colors you chose for your millefiori quilt. I have cut out my first round of the first rosette and am in the middle of glue basting. I think picking out the fabric was the hardest part.
