Another rosette started but .... oops

The next rosette is started on the millefiore quilt a long. I am so pleased with the fussy cutting on the centre and just love it. Started on the second round and kept thinking that the hexies look a bit small. Well can you spot the obvious mistake???

Here is one on top of the other and yes it's the centre one that is too big not the other way round. Darn it! Should have realised as  when I was cutting the diamonds I knew they were 1.75 " big so that of course makes 3.5" along the edge not 3", so it's back to the drawing board. At least I only have to make one hexie and not six so as the song goes.... always look on the bright side of life.

Going to link with Anthea at Hibiscus stitching for her piece it together.

July PH

July perpetual hexie together, just need to put it on the background. Love the colours in this one and think it will fit in with the others beautifully.

This is the 4th rosette of the Millefiore quilt a long. Think this is the last really big one. Again I am really not sure about the colours but I am not unpulling anything. Will be interesting to see how it fits in with the others. The more I look at it the more I like it but we will see.

Have got 200 clamshells ready to go into blocks so they are growing and they will be the go to project when I don't have anything else.
