Katja Marek’s Millefiore Quilt
I finally found a good picture of Katja Marek’s Millefiori Quilt:
I have 5 of the “rosette” packages for the English Paper Pieces. You can get them at the English Paper Piecing Web site. And there is a “club” of people doing a rosette a month, or something like that. Once you have a package in hand, you go to Katja Marek’s web site for refined instructions.
The large rosette in the middle left of the quilt (rose/yellow/green) is the starting point. I have TWO of these packages as I want to do one with baby fabrics and use it as the beginning of a medallion quilt.
These pieces are larger than some of the other millefiori quilt patterns–so I think this quilt will be more accessible to more people, including ME.
My thanks to friend Becca Babb-Brott (Etsy store: Sew Me A Song) for introducing me to this Katja Marek pattern.
AND to friend Megan Bruns, who has been a trailblazer in this whole millefiori quilt knowledge base. (You should see her finished rosettes–and I will ask her for some pics when I get back from Charleston.)
