A little Creme Brûlée

I’m continuing to take a break away from Leo’s Mane while I work on Creme Brûlée, which is a design by Willyne Hammerstein from her book Millefiori quilts 2. It’s much less complex than Leo, so it’s been a nice brain break.
I’ve taken the original single rosettes and started putting them together.
 I have a total of 12 of them finished. I don’t know if this is going to end up being a full sized quilt, or if I will end up just using what I have and making it into a smaller wall hanging. I have so many ideas bouncing around in my head that I want to play with. They all take so much time that making a full sized anything seems like it won’t happen. So I might stick with doing smaller, which is something even two years ago I never thought I’d ever hear myself say. I was always “I don’t do small”. But that was before I discovered the addiction called English Paper Piecing, all done by hand therefore taking so very much longer to actually finish anything.
I’ll see how big this ends up and what it looks like with another row of four rosettes added to the bottom and make my decision about what to do then. It could end up squared off with white hexagons around the edge, trimmed square and then hung up on a wall in my studio.
So, my task today is to continue sewing these together, after I link up with Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.

  1. I agree - we can only do so many large hexie quilts in our lifetime. I'm finishing a few smaller projects today for a trunk show Tuesday and then i can start working on leo's mane!!

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
