I belong to a facebook page called Millefiori - La Passacaglia. This world wide group is named after the last quilt in book one Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein. I have written a previous post about her books and these quilts. Willyne has injected excitement and interest back into English Paper Piecing (EPP) and for this I would like to thank her. So using Willyne's ideas from both her books, I am making my first EPP whole quilt. Here is my progress on my design wall.
Still a very long way to go, and so much fun. It won't be a millefori using only three colours but it will still create mini kaleidoscopes.
Joan (one of our regular customers) brought her latest project for show n tell today at work. The jersey is knitted in black tekapo yarn and she has embellished it with a strand of "French Knitting". The fun part about this is the story - its for her granddaughter and the French knitting was made by her daughter when she was a child.
Notice the buttons that secure the start and end of the French knitting strand.
