Tula Pink la passacaglia rosette

This week I finished my Tula Pink la passacaglia mini quilt.


I made the centre of this rosette when I was making my quilt, but the colours weren't just right for my quilt.  I felt this rosette stood out too much, so I just kept it "for another day".


 That day finally arrived and I felt inspired to finish it off and turn it into a mini quilt.


I try out lots of possibilities before I stitch

It took just under 3 weeks to add the outer rounds, applique it onto a dark background and hand quilt this little mini.  It's ended up 20" across, and will look quite nice on my wall I think.



I can't claim to have invented this idea - it's one that I saw months ago in the facebook group.  Alewives Fabrics is a shop in USA and the owner there had made this version which I've always loved.



So as you can see, there's plenty of ways to use up those left over rosettes.



These lovely fabrics are from Tula Pink's Fox Fields collection.
Finished size - 20" diameter.

Have fun deciding where in the house to hang it, Wendy. You are really steaming through those UFOs, it seems!

pretty neat I would have thought you had tired of that though and moved on to another design - sometimes we just can't stop

I don't think you could have chosen a better binding, I love it all!

I love that you used the pink stripe for the stars and finished with the grey/black one for the binding, lovely work Wendy.

You persevere with such intricate pieces. It would drive me nuts just trying to work out what should go where!

That is just gorgeous! I ended up with an extra set of block one papers so have been thinking of doing this, too...love your colors! I need to finish my big Millie before I tackle anything else though. Thanks for the inspiration!
