My La Passacaglia is coming along beautifully. This is my second rosette and the colour scheme is one of my current favourites - I'd love to make a whole quilt from these aquas, peaches and pinks!
I've pulled out lots of combinations for my next rosettes and even though I love working on one and seeing grow, it might be worth making up a few centres and seeing which ones I love as a way to decide on the which will be the big rosettes and which the small. Picking the fabrics for these rosettes is really what takes the time!
My other EPP love is the New Hexagon Millefiori quilt. The pieces in this quilt are far bigger than those in La Pass so this makes a nice change. I've also made a concerted effort to have a very different colour feel to this quilt. While La Pass will be bright and vibrant with few neutrals, this quilt is all about neutrals. I'm using greys, creams, white and just a pop of colour. In this first rosette that colour is obviously aqua.
But what colour should I use for the next rosette? The original plan was all low volume with different pops of colour in each rosette, but is there a more refined, classy look out there? I really love that colour scheme on my La Pass rosette above...is this the project? Or do I keep it simple and stick with aqua throughout? It think it would be difficult to maintain the contrast and differentiate between the rosettes, but if I got it right it could be really lovely - soft and subtle.
I'm going to link up a couple of places with this post: firstly over with Aylin - her post is part of the blog hop for a new book I have had my eye on "All Points Patchwork", so I'm going to enter to win a copy - you never know, maybe I'll be lucky. Also check out the beautiful project she's posted. I want to drop all of the above projects and start this straight away. So far I have controlled myself!
And I'm going to link up with Hibiscus Stitches for Piece Yourself Together
