Ballet with Kaffe revisited (and the Peacock Party)

My poor Ballet with Kaffe quilt has been neglected for months.  So many other tempting things have come along this year, so I put this one away and haven't done anything on it since February.



However, Quiltmania have just started advertising Willyne Hammerstein's fourth book, Millefiori Quilts 4 and that has spurred me into action.




Of course I want the new book, and I probably want to make quilts from it, so I really need to finish my Ballet with Kaffe from book 2. I've worked on it every night this week with no distractions.  That's pretty good for me!



You can read more about this quilt on the Ballet with Kaffe - Millefiori Quilts 2 tab at the top of the page or by clicking here.



Now it's time for the Peacock Party.
What have you been up to this week? Have you had any time for quilting or stitching? Or are you busy preparing for Christmas?

WOW! This is beautiful, a lot of work but so worth it! Enjoy finishing the piecing for this treasure.

I don't know why I didn't know you were an administrator for the FB page. I just send a request to join. I love these quilts and admit they are a bit beyond what I have done in EPP in the past. I have been thinking about getting a book, but they are cost prohibitive for me right now. But your work is certainly inspiring!

Oh, that's so gorgeous. I just love Millefiori quilts but don't think I'll ever have the courage to start one.

Wendy, I've come to see that you're a glutton for the most challenging projects! I admire you for that, but know I couldn't tackle such projects myself. Good for you!

sometimes it takes awhile to get back to a project doesn't it - I have some waiting for a long time for me to get back to

I LOVE your millefiori quilt and hope you do finish it. Like Linda said, I admire your willingness to tackle these complex projects. They are just gorgeous.

That is a stunning quilt! I have always admired quilts like this, but just don't have the patience (or time) to commit to one right now. Blessings!
