Here is Rosette Number 2 from the The New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt Along. It is made from the Anna Maria Horner line Pretty Potent, except for the leopard print which is from her Field Study line. I would have been sharing it much sooner if I hadn't run out of the purple print with blue flowers and had to order more.
I'm really happy with this block and I'm glad to be making progress with the project! I can't wait till I have a few more blocks done and we can start to see it all come together!

I sure do hope you weren't holding your breath waiting to see my Tula Pink City Sampler,because I finished the top over a year ago and just not got it quilted. But the best things are worth waiting for, right?
I choose the Gridlock layout which makes a huge 90 x 90 quilt, and I completed it using only Tula Pink fabrics and solids (except for the white dotted background). I had a lot of fun piecing these blocks
It's quilted with a more modern Cathedral Window pattern.
I love making pieced quilt backs and it was fun to use some of the prints that are very large scale.
I also decided to do a rainbow binding since I couldn't imagine picking one print for this quilt, and at least it gave me some variation so hand stitching the binding wasn't so boring since the print kept changing.
As you can see, Zombie cat already has made his approval known.

It's finally done! It took me the better part of 3 weeks, but here is Rosette #1 for The New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt Along. I really had fun making this! I loved pulling fabric and trying to find the perfect fussy cuts and the best repeats for the pattern. I've already started pulling fabric for the next Rosette. I don't know if I'll ever catch up, but I sure will try!

And so it's begun! I stumbled across The New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt Along last month while trying to decide if I wanted to purchase the The New Hexagon book and I have been fascinated with it ever since. I wanted to finished up my Tula Pink EEP before starting this new project but it was very hard considering I'm already 6 full months behind in the 12 month project, but I managed to hold out and I started cutting fabric for Rosette 1 the night I finished the Tula Pink EEP.
I am well underway with Rosette 1 now and I hope to share it with you soon! So far, I am really enjoying this project! It's so much fun to pull fabrics and watch it all come together!
