    A couple of firsts for me....

    1) My first string quilt. Still need to square it up, sandwich and bind it. This finished at 22" - those pieces are only 1/2" wide !!! Thank goodness for paper piecing. Not sure I would want to spend that much effort on scraps again.

    2) My first La Passacaglia rosette. Not sure what colors I'm going for in my version. I need a bit more practice on aligning the fussy cut pentagons. This was just a practice rosette. It might make it into the final quilt. We'll see.

        That is an amazing first quilt or second or third...great wall hanging. Those would make great center blocks in a larger quilt too.

            Wow, I can't imagine working with strings that narrow! I usually don't save anything <2" wide. They're both beautiful!

                  Your string quilt is amazing and very beautiful. I would love to make something like that. The Passacaglia rosette equally as lovely. I look forward to seeing what you do with that quilt pattern.

                    you amaze me! I love both of the projects but I'm really attracted to the second one. I love that fussy cutting! I'm going to have to do som research on it.

                    Beautiful work

                      beautiful and amazing work! Not sure I would have the patience for either of those. You did a fantastic job on both. I really like the Rose.
