I'm pleased to present "Bollywood" - another finished quilt from Millefiori Quilts 4 by Willyne Hammerstein. 

I love the vibrant colours in this quilt.  I started with a piece of the Legendary fabric by Pat Bravo as my inspiration fabric, and chose the other fabrics from that.  The hot pinks, the rich golds, and the sparkling teals.  I love them all together in this fabric.  

Bollywood is made from the Raindrops Are Falling on my Head pattern that is in Millefiori Quilts 4 by Willyne Hammerstein.  I chose to hand piece my quilt, but it can also be paper pieced.  I used templates made by Paper Pieces in USA, and fussy cut as many rosettes as I could.

Just starting out - March 2021

Making progress - June 2021

I love hand quilting, but a quilt like this has a lot of seams, so I took it to my local long arm quilter - Rayna Clinton.  We developed a plan, and she quilted it beautifully on her long arm machine.  

I decided to use up all my scraps from this quilt on the back.  I now have a permanent record of what the Legendary fabric looked like before I fussy cut it to death.  

Bollywood isn't huge, but it was fun to make and allowed me to experiment with pattern and colour.  I'm making another version of this pattern with minor changes this time.  You can read about my Ruby Star quilt here, and I'll point out the differences in a future post.  

Finished size: 40" x 55"

Now it's time for the Peacock Party.  Feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

Bollywood is beautiful! It seems like you really EPP'd this quilt top fast! The machine quilting is perfect. I especially like the outside border, just lovely!

What a fantastic, vibrant quilt! It really turned out so well! Great idea using the fabric in the backing so you can see what it originally looked like. Nice finish!

Oh, so pretty! Love the bright colors and the design. Do you enjoy hand piecing better than paper piecing?

You have such a great eye for selecting your fabrics/colours and your fussy cutting to make new designs of the prints - great job!
