Millefiore - the whole 9 yards

When Patty The Quilt Lady made the comment that she didn't realize the umbrellas would just be a center block, I realized I needed to show you the WHOLE Millefiore Quilt.

Prepare to be amazed......


Prepare to wonder if I have lost my ever-loving mind to do this project........

The New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt-Along Free on my website. Each participant must own a copy of the book, The New Hexagon: this one belongs to Katja at Katja's Quilt Shoppe.  If you click on this

 Katja's Page for Millefiore

you will see the individual rosettes and how it is put together.  It really is an amazing piece of art.  Each one I have seen on the Facebook page is totally different and always beautiful.

Rosette 1 that I am working on right now is that pink one in the middle left.  And if you want to think of how much work I am doing, the part I have done is just the center and the first round in that one rosette. 

Not a lot, huh?


  1. Absolutely stunning! What a beautiful quilt.

  2. So gorgeous! And yours will have all these layers to look at with umbrellas and other stuff. A worthwhile project

  3. Oh my goodness! Stunning! It reminds me of a kaleidoscope.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
