Hexie-aholic update

I am so far behind on my Millefiore project!

This is April, Rosette 4, finally done! I do like it a lot more than I thought I would when agonizing over choosing fabrics back in June. 

All four together but not in their final positions on the layout.

I am done painting my sewing room but am awaiting delivery of new shelving, lighting and a second table for my second machine. In the meantime if I can resist casting on another pair of socks I will get the next one or two prepped and ready to sew. I hope that process will go a little faster as I have already chosen piles of fabric for the next three. May just need to add a few here and there from my stash. 

I joined Mad About Patchwork`s Cotton and Steel FQ club, which includes 6 shipments of 10 each of the line from this spring`s market. 
This is delivery one, love those sloths, such cool creatures we had the opportunity to see in Costa Rica last year. 

Linking up today with


  1. Amazing paper piecing project!

  2. Beautiful project! I despise handwork so EPP is not one of my talents but I may have to suffer the pain for a small project because it is just too darn fabulous! Love the sloths too. I love the non-novelty feel of the C&S noveltyish fabrics. Hope that makes sense.

  3. I just started my Millefiore project - I am working on the New Hexagon version. Each of your rosettes are so beautiful, and it is great how wonderful they look with each other.

  4. I had a grandmother's garden quilt started with hexies but I may have to switch direction - those are gorgeous!
